We are only 9 weeks away from Zoey’s due date and I am feeling overwhelmingly unprepared for her arrival. Even though this is my second child, 5 years feels like a lifetime ago. I cannot remember anything that I packed in my hospital bag when Audrey was born. I can be sure though that I packed way more than I truly needed. This time around I want to be fully ready and realistic on what I need and do need at the hospital.

Everyone forgets about daddy at the hospital.
First order of business will be picking up travel size toiletries and finding a cute yet comfortable outfit to come home in for Zoey and I.
