Yesterday was Baby Buchan's third and final baby shower.

I am blown away by how generous people are. We pretty much have everything we need for the baby and we didn't need to buy much ourselves. We even have enough in GCs and cash to buy the crib (the last big thing we need). My siblings and parents went in and bought us a breast pump, which was an item I kept putting off because I couldn't think about how much it was or decide on what I wanted. My brother and sister-in-law picked it out because they had one with Kethry. It makes me laugh thinking about my brother comparing different models to get me the one that would work the best for me at work. Still, Jens has always been in touch with his feminine side.

Tonight we are going to buy the crib. I am not sure if they have to order it or not but it will be nice to have that off the list. Then the only thing I think we have left to do is pack the hospital bags and wait for the baby to come.

BTW, I was reading a list of things to bring to the hospital and one suggested bringing Lysol. This is why people think pregnant woman are crazy. I am not going to pack much because we only live 5 or 10 minutes from the hospital. If we need something we can get it from home.

Well, you know how those hospitals are always short on disinfectant. It's not like they need to ever sterilize anything there. /sarcasm

I was used to pretty high-strung first time parents, and when my cousin and his wife became parents they told people, "If you would put your own fingers in your mouth, you don't need to wash them before holding the baby." I was shocked, shocked, I say! (Of course, by baby number 2 most of the high-strung first time parents were like: "Here, take the baby." "But I have mud all over..." "TAKE HIM!")

Well, if you need to spray some Lysol on your baby, the hospital isn't going to let you use theirs. (Though, if they thought about it, they could add a "$275/day - ambient purification surcharge".)

I can't imagine why not. BABY MUST BE STERILE!
