Baby To Do {4 months to go}

2016!!!!! Officially the year my baby will be born! HOLY MOLY! November and December flew by in the blink of an eye. I am having a hard time wrapping my head around the fact that our second baby is due in just 4 months!!! Thankfully, despite the busy holiday season and feeling like crap for the better part of December, we were able to get some baby related things checked off the every growing to-do list of life. I'm feeling pretty good about where we are at right now but also know there is much that still needs to be done.

  15 week prenatal visit - This was just a quick little appointment but we got to hear a healthy heartbeat which is always reassuring and exciting.

  Mail gender reveal invites - I ended up just doing a little evite {gasp} after completely changing our reveal plans last minute. 

  Plan gender announcement - I wanted to share baby's gender in a fun way and thought getting a new Christmas ornament would be a fun way to do that as well as have some special to remember this exciting time in our lives! 

  20 week ultrasound and gender scan! - December 11th will always be special because it's the day we found out we were having a SON! I'll never forget hearing the words "it's a boy!", I still get emotional just thinking about it. 

  Find outfit for gender reveal - I didn't real go out all out on this because there wasn't a need to. But I did treat myself to a new maternity top and necklace. Nothing fancy.

  Gender Reveal Party!!! We kept it simple with just our family and very best friends and it was a blast! Sharing our news this way was perfect and so special. 

 Announce baby's gender to the world - We're having a BOY! And now everyone knows it!

 Pick a baby name - We do have a name! We have been 100% on our little boy's first name for YEARS {not even kidding, we talked about it on our third or fourth date - when you know, you know!} We are pretty sure on a middle name as well! And, NO, we will not be sharing the name until he's born. I love having that surprise at the end. 

  Register for baby - I wasn't sure whether a registry was necessary for a second baby but after talking to some friends, felt it made sense. So Kenley and I went to Target to pick out some things that her little brother will need! 

  Finalize nursery plans and create a nursery to-do - I think I have a clear plan for what I want to do with baby boy's room, and obviously along with that comes a big ol checklist! More on that coming soon.

  Schedule prenatal massage - My sweet husband sent me to the spa for the entire day on my birthday! I not only got a prenatal massage but a facial, a manicure and a blowout! I got a special lunch and got to relax by a fireplace in between appointments. It was the best day! 

 Plan Babymoon - It.Is.Planned.And.Booked!! Jason, Kenley and I are heading to Arizona in February! We'll spend a few days at my mom's in Scottsdale as well as a couple days in Tucson for an Arizona Basketball game! I could not be more excited to spend some quality time with my little family of three before we become a party of four.

◊  Start pregnancy safe workout routine - I think I worked out ONCE in December thanks to feeling like garbage. BUT, no better time than the New Year to get back on track. Exercise is so important during pregnancy for so many reasons so I really need to make this more of a priority for these last few months! So far over the past week, I've been doing good!   

  Reach goal of walking/running/biking 400 miles - I've got a lot of work to do, but so far I'm at 81.24 miles. {318.76 left to go, yikes!}

  Talk to Sara Jayne about maternity, hospital & newborn shoots - We have our maternity session booked for early March and I'm so excited! The hospital and newborn shoots we'll have to nail down once little man is here {or close} but I am starting to browse some ideas and inspiration!

  Find Sprinkle outfit - I actually ordered 4 dresses right after Christmas in hopes of keeping 3 of them, one for each sprinkle and one for my cousin's wedding coming up the end of this month. I've never ordered from asos before, but am hoping at least a couple of these will work out! 

  Work on the nursery - Operation Nursery is well under way! I'm excited to share an update with what I've accomplished in there so far! 

  Attend a TC Bump Club Workout - Still haven't made it to one of these. Hopefully soon!!!
  Create financial plan & beef up savings - This should be super high on the priority list, but still just hasn't happened.  
 Schedule some prenatal yoga classes - Yoga is so good for the body and mind and I need to get some classes in ASAP!
  Figure out Child Care - This stresses me out big time. I am lucky to have a flexible work schedule and an office where I can bring my kiddos. However, working with TWO kids will no doubt be very different than working with one. Jason and I need to take some time to figure out what life with two will look like and how we will manage our day-to-day.
