Hello everyone! I know that my last post wasn’t that long ago, but I thought I should do a post before I go dark for a while. Hopefully I’ll be delivering soon! Fingers crossed that it’s in the next day or two, because I am so tired of being pregnant. I loved my pregnancy for the majority of it, but the end of this trimester has been very taxing with the back pain, the swollen feet, the trouble walking because of my loose limbs, etc.
I’ve been preparing for her arrival this week by finishing up my last few thank you cards, washing all her little clothes, packing up hospital bags, and setting up the bedroom we’ll be sharing for the first few months of her life. Today I started putting all her clothes, blankets, towels, and toys away in the closet.
There’s a lot more that will be going in there, but for now this is our setup. My mom got the little bins last week and some of them have her clothes in them, some have burp cloths/receiving blankets, and the big gray one on the bottom right (hidden behind the bag with the giraffe toys) is all blankets. She has so many handmade blankets already! In addition to the one I knitted that’s featured in my last post, Baby Knitting Part 2, she has 4 handmade quilts made by our loving friends and family.
Here’s a shot of her bassinet-I know that she can’t have blankets or toys with her when she’s actually sleeping there, but the bare sheet looked kind of sad to me so I added her knitted blanket, Rabbit, and the elephant security blanket. I love that little elephant so much. It was the first thing that I put on my registry, and we got it as a gift at my last baby shower in December. I hope the baby loves it just as much as I do!
The next time I post will probably be after the birth and will hopefully cover my labor and delivery journey. I got a new camera for Christmas, and I’m hoping that we’ll have some video of us in the hospital (not the actual labor of course), and bringing her home that I can add to the post. Until next time!
