Today's post features a "take to the hospital" checklist download. I found all of the items on the list very helpful and handy to have, although you might find me to be somewhat of an over-packer. (I like to live by the boy scout credo, "always be prepared.") Chip and I arrived at the hospital around midnight, with bags on shoulders and pillows under our arms and me having contractions. The nurses actually laughed at us, saying they have pillows there, but I loved having my own. Getting good sleep at the hospital is an absolute must before bringing home an infant who has no concept of night or day! I hope this is helpful to you, as I found this to be one of those last minute, had to get done things that left me not knowing where to start. Also included in the links are my favorite pair of yoga pants ever (that are great post-baby, because of the waistband that can fold up or down) and the extra art boards I brought so the nurses could put Vivi's footprints on them for us to take home (more on that later!). Happy Memorial Day!
