What Happened to October and November?

These two months seemed to have disappeared and I need them back! Tomorrow morning we leave for New York. We plan to spend the night in the city and will leave on Wednesday afternoon for Delhi. As hard as I tried to be organized and have everything ready, I'm going crazy packing and buying last minute things I forgot to pack. We are super excited nonetheless. So far, so good...

Who knew 2 babies needed so much stuff?
So far, I've packed the following:

2 Phil & Ted's cocoons
2 Baby Bjorn carriers
2 newborn inserts for carriers
Diaper Bag
410 diapers (preemie and newborn)
20 burp cloths
12 blankets
22 bottles
6 pacifiers
Electric bottle sterilizer
Diaper cream/diaper rash ointment
800 baby wipes
small trash bags (some hotels don't put them in rooms)
hand sanitizer
Thermometer and grooming kit
nasal aspirator
clothes - 20 onesies (short and long sleeves), 4 night gowns, t-shirts, socks, 6 caps, mittens, 4 sleep & plays, 8 bodysuits
6 swaddler wraps
1 bottle of champagne

I don't think I have space for our own clothes!

In the meantime, my house has become a mini baby store:

 The dogs like the City Select stroller, my favorite toy of all!

 I'm being told I need to stop wasting time on the computer and start packing! Next stop, Delhi!!!

  3. Happy and safe travels...we hope to see you guys there soon too. We should have been on our flight now as we speak but have decided to delay our flight until Jan 2nd as our babies are very undersized and now are 5 weeks behind...it was a heart-breaking decision to make ...but yeah anyway best of luck for the safe arrival of your little ones!!

  4. good luck. My suggestions: thermos for hot water (to mix formula with) and electric tea kettle if hotel doesn't provide; premie size onsies and body suits; make sure bottle sterilizer works in India, ours didn't, even with converter; i'd bring some formula, if you want to switch to a specific US brand like Similac Sensitive, some ready made 2oz formula with disposable nipples for travel (we bought a 50 case and used it all)--otherwise your list looks great!

  13. Good luck. Can't wait for the good news. And FYI, pacifiers have a way of disappearing. You might need a few more than six. We lose them constantly.
