Preparing for the arrival of our little char siu bao is ramping up to another level! I am at 34 weeks now and technically she could show up safely as early as 3 weeks from today! That sounds so soon!
I have pushed going to baby stores as late as I could but I finally went for the first time this month to research and buy things I think we need for her immediate arrival. All I have to say is that baby equipment is as foreign to me as...aerospace robotics, but we try to talk to as many people as we can (and everyone is very willing to give their two cents) and make decisions based on their experiences.
We have also been making time to spend with friends before she arrives. Since Chris is certified and teaches First Aid, Melinda & Chris had the brilliant idea of having dinner and going over some baby safety things with us, more specifically baby CPR! They had us over for a cozy dinner and afterwards, Chris thoroughly went over the steps of performing CPR on a baby, something we hope we never have to do but I definitely feel more confident now if the situation fell in front of us.
Just in case right? And a great excuse to have dinner together! (and to give Dre kisses!)
