Make way for baby


Well, we are on our final week now, the baby's due date is next monday or tuesday and judging from how quickly last week whipped by, I fancy we'll be holding the baby before we know it, so this weekend we made sure we had the baby space all wrapped up and ready....

I organised the baby sheets...


And flannel swaddling...


The baby bouncer, play mat, and snugli carrier...


and the nappy's are all stacked neatly in the nappy holder which my husbands grandmother made for my sister in law when she had her wee ones.... whom I happily inherited from ....

Sorry about the sideways pic of the nappy stack!

We are using 'real' nappy's as we feel that even though disposables may be easier at times, that they are a real waste of money (especially here, there arn't burdget brands) and they are not really ideal for people who try to keep waste to a minimum.... we're not tree-huggin' hippies, but we live on the land we feel that you need to think about these things.

I think we are as ready as we'll ever be, how ready can you be lets face it?!

Exiting! I have four kids, and I remember the feeling of joy and exitement- and tiredness...-and anxiety, and having to hear everyone asking "well, you are still here???Aren't you supposed to give birth soon?"
Take care.

Great post, will be greater still next week (hopefully) when baby M oore is in his sheets and blankets. Good for you Jo using proper nappies we never had Pampers and coped very well and much cheaper as you said. I am thinking of you every minute and am on standby near the phone. Love your crochet tutorial too and crochet blankets , well done once again . Great Grandma Rose x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x
