This past Friday, the StorkCraft staff surprised me with a baby shower that included a cake with an adorable pair of icing booties and a desk full of gifts and decorations! Thanks for all the well wishes and the thoughtfulness, StorkCraft!
Tomorrow will be my last day at StorkCraft before I take my maternity leave. I still have not determined the full amount of time that I will be on this “break” yet, but right now it looks like it will be a full year to ease into being a new mom and being able to visit my parents for a few months. Hopefully I’ll be able to document my new journey into new motherhood via this blog during this time.
With the birth date being a month away, it seems to me that I will have a bit too much time on my hands, but all my mommy friends say that taking the one month off before the due date is a God-send for having some rest and getting last minute baby purchases and room organized.
How did you spend the weeks leading up to your due date? Any “must-do” items or things you wished you had done before your baby was born?
