Baby and Me Check list.

Yesterday i had another doctor's appointment, and got another look at my little angel.. he/she is pretty active, and seeing a live moving thing inside me still freaks me out a little a lot..

Anyway, since time is moving SUPER fast, i'm heading down to Jakarta this weekend with the in laws to see Dona, and baby dalmar, then me and Muuzi are gonna be busy next month packing and preparing for the big move (bye taman gembira!) and then puasa/raya is coming up so soon just around the corner. So, I've gotta get down the details of what i'm going to be needing cum December early or it's just going to be chaotic..

Here's my checklist of everything i'll probably need when baby comes... at least for the first few weeks.
