So, the packing is now DONE and I can breathe a little easier! Since I have been making lists, buying stuff and getting organized for weeks, it wasn't too big of a chore and the bags both weigh a couple of pounds under the limit. which is great. Thank goodness we are not traveling in the wintertime, as I am not sure how I would have fit much more in those two bags!
We still have our two carry-ons to pack, which are a backpack for Jonathan containing the laptop, cameras and other electronics, along with any items he needs for the flight, as well as a backpack-style diaper bag for me, which will contain the prescription drugs, documents and my must-have items for the flight. We received our passports and visa's back today, and I feel such a sense of accomplishment after this week.
Yesterday we attended yet another baby shower, given by Jonathan's co-workers. We had a wonderful time and were touched by their kindness and generosity - thank you all so much! We now have purchased the car seats and the second highchair, and we are incredibly thankful to all of you. We have all the essentials, the girl's room is ready and we can now relax a little and enjoy our last few days as just a couple, before we become a family of four!
