I am the type of person that is always “nesting” even without a baby getting ready to make his appearance. Baby on the horizon only increases this compulsion. We purchased another baby monitor, located the infant car seat and co-sleeper and I made my husband go through his clothes this weekend. If I’m not laying down on my left side, something is being organized.
We finally completed our wills this week and had them notarized at Daddy’s office (what is it about long office hallways that invite little boys to run at top speed until they go straight into someone’s office?). Even though these concern temporal matters, it gives me much peace knowing these documents are in place. I seriously encourage everyone to have something down on paper should the unexpected happen. We followed the advice of several lawyers and didn’t hire a lawyer, but used Quicken Willmaker instead. It also allowed us to make and have notarized other forms that authorize grandma to seek medical treatment for the kids, etc.
