A Weekend of Baby Preparations.....

Our weekend just gone has been one of pottering and preparations, with about five weeks to go before belly bubs makes his appearance I figured it was time to start getting some things organised. That along with an overload of people with a few having a sixth sense talent telling me I'm going to go early, I thought it might be worth listening to the messages being sent my way. Oh and as well as that I probably should mention to overall significant challenge I am having in moving around at the moment, best I do what I can otherwise the Ben is going end up with some hell of a to-do list. But we all know he's a good egg, and would surely comply with my requests, maybe with an added cheeky grumble, to test the waters.


The cot has been erected and placed side-car to the bed, an essential for a breastfeeding mummy (at least this one) to have safe laying down sleepy feeds with baby and to get sleep. The white crochet blanket with the touch of yellow and purple is my very own baby blanket, all 35 years old of it. It's one of my most treasured possessions and I have used it with all my babies in some form or the other.


The modern cloth nappy stash has been washed as well as my hippy baby tie dye good old terry square flats. How can a baby not look cool in them huh?

Clothes have been washed and my mum has even been out op shopping for some newborn extras.

I'm smitten with this little find, my mum picked up.
The lovely bassinet gifted to me by Dorel at the Bloggers Baby Shower is ready and made up for our little mister.

So there you have it, a few things are taking shape and are ready on the home front. There's still hospital bags to pack and what not's to happen, but at least I've started. It's starting to get real, its seriously and finally dawned on me that things are about to change here all over again.

You have everything looking great. Nothing like being prepared, especially when you'll have your hands full in another 6 weeks time. Take care Sweet. Xx

I can't wait to meet your little guy! I'm sure you are much, much more eager than I am, which seems almost unbearable, but I'm glad you're all ready for his arrival! I thought today when you texted me and mentioned your having trouble getting around, that maybe you'll go early. Just as long as it's not next Thursday, okay? You don't want to freak out your guest ;) xx
