Getting ready for baby: Packing our overnight hospital bag

We’re now 20 weeks pregnant with our little guy and can’t wait to welcome him into the family! As the day gets closer, we’re accomplishing some tasks to make sure we’re as ready as possible. We’re doing everything from planning nursery themes to onesie shopping to reading parenting books. You can never be too prepared, right?!

One of the first things we’re accomplishing is packing an overnight hospital bag. We decided to head over to our local Kmart to pick up some essential items to help us through the labor and delivery process. Here’s what we’ve packed so far!

We’re packing everything in this awesome five-piece diaper bag – we’re all about using things for multiple purposes and being frugal, so this is perfect for us.

This is just the beginning of our overnight hospital bag. We’ll be adding some more essentials we get closer to our due date. If you’re a parent and have any suggestions for us, feel free to let us know in the comments below!

You guys, IT’S HAPPENING! We are filled with so much emotion as we share this news with everyone. We are SO excited to welcome a new member into our family (yes, a human one)!

This is by far our greatest adventure yet, even though our lives have been full of them – from Jesse moving 3,000 miles to live in California, to being pet parents to the best animals in the world, to double-proposing to each other at Disneyland.

Zira and Ellie are going to be the best big sisters!! They’ll have plenty of new duties, including food testing, toy testing, teaching the baby how to play, and serving as guard dogs!
