Starting To Nest!

Vests from the set Jack chose
I went out with Jack today and he chose Bean's "coming home" outfit a gender neutral two piece set with a fluffy elephant on it. Then we found some vests and a hat to match! So that's that sorted! All I need for the hospital bag now are the nappies and something for me to wear when I come home!

I've been trying to sort the nursery a bit. We're a bit stuck now until next week when Georgie's new drawers arrive. So far his clothes are still in the nursery room drawers, which Bean will need. But once he has his own drawers I can start looking through my baby clothes and cloth nappies, give the drawers a good clean, and check over the baby toys to see if they are in need of cleaning.

I started to look at what we had for baby and there is just SO much stuff that we already have! Loads of soft toys, musical toys, a couple of play mats/gyms with interchangeable toys (about 2 bags of toys for them). I want to get a new bouncy chair. But beyond that.... Bean is pretty well set up!

I've dug out the baby car seat and taken the cover off ready to get washed - it got a bit dusty since it was used last. I'd like to get it in the car now (just to get it out of the way) but don't know how many more runs to the tip hubby wants to make between now and baby and it seems silly to put it in just to keep taking it out every other weekend for the next 10-12 weeks. For now it's sat in the baby bath next to the cot.

I'm itching to get back into my baby clothes stash. I ditched a load of stuff just before I put it away last time and only kept stuff I really really love. I'm going to get a bit teary eyed going through it all again I bet!

I want to put the crib up soon. I was hoping for this weekend. But there is still a bookcase in our room where I want the crib to go. That needs to go into the nursery, but can't move until Georgie's drawers are here and we've worked out the best way to squeeze everything in.

So...... Everything hinges on these ruddy drawers! And when there is a whole weekend just begging for stuff to fill it, Tuesday feels like a looooooong way away!

Dress Shopping

Yay! Another thing of the list - two things actually because I'm certain I have the right replacement shoes for me too!

Drove down to Mum's this morning, picked her up and drove over to Jacquie's, and from there the three of us and Jac's two daughters headed over to the Trafford Centre.

It turned out to be a really easy shopping trip - and surprisingly quick too!

First off, Debenhams. The first dresses we saw for child bridesmaids looked just about perfect. Little ivory dresses with chiffon type fabric over the skirt and little flowers embroidered on the top. This means that they are the same ivory as my dress, and have some green included too which makes them ideal. And they had Caitlin & Mia's sizes too. The girls tried them on, with co-ordinating shoes, and looked brilliant! We looked at others, but none of them came close so we had them put aside and moved onto the next shop.

Monsoon had a sale on, and we were hopeful, but nothing was quite right. They had plen…
