Phew, it’s been a busy few days here and keira was still throwing up at midnight last night………….juuuuuuust as I thought we were getting over our illnesses! The washer and dryer have been running overtime and I won’t miss laundry when I’m in hospital. Amongst other things like tantrums, dishes and picking up toys.
On Friday it looked like we would never get through our list of jobs before baby arrives………….but Sunday afternoon is here and we have done good. The changetable is fully stocked and ready for a baby, oh how tiny are newborn Huggies! And the basinette is up – thankfully I found the mattress which I had temporarily lost during the week.
wardrobes are organised and I still need to give retro daddy ‘the talk’ about outfits while I’m in hopsital. I don’t know how it goes at your house but everytime I’m in hospital retro daddy takes it upon himself to become extreme fashion stylist. We’re talking skirts over jeans, 3 pony tails and summer dresses with woollen tights. Or last week he dressed Tillie for swimming in her very best french dress and white tights!?!?!?!
The reality that little elodie won’t be the baby here anymore has hit and she still screams when I leave a room or the house so we’re hoping for the best and out of sight is out of mind next week. I’m going to miss her so much and smother her in kisses and cuddles at any opportunity.
but she is walking all over the house so I am loving that!
and just to keep me on my toes I realised I only had one blue basinette blanket and decided to start a quick and chunky small blanket for our new little bubba. I’m using luxury 10 ply in ghost and rustic 12 ply in graphite and it’s working up quickly and evenly. This is one night’s work and I’m on a roll. And what a departure from my normal colour palette! I’m loving the greys!
so with just 3 sleeps to go I better get back to my jobs!
