Looking at things for Baby


Oooohh! I have been window shopping!

There are only a handful of things we need for this baby, but quite a few more that I would like to have too! Like a second Moby Wrap <-- this is the one I already have! And I quite fancy upgrading the Bambino Mio cloth nappies we have, has some of the covers are getting a bit worn after 3 babies! Now I have seen the MioSolo, which is their new all-in-one product, and I'm thinking I might buy a few of those as they are (allegedly) from birth to potty training, so while they look expensive to start with they would actually work out really cheap. I'm not planning on replacing the whole lot, but they would make a good addition and I can ditch the more worn nappy covers I have.

I'm 30 weeks tomorrow, which mean I have a MAXIMUM of 70 days before I get to meet Baby Bean. Just 10 weeks. And, depending on how these growth scans go, it could be as little as 8 weeks!

8 weeks isn't very long at all.

Last weekend I wrote a list of thing to do, a "Before Baby List" of 10 things that need doing before I go in for my induction. I'm happy to say that 3 of them are done already! And a good chunk of the others I will be able to cross off when I get paid next. This weekend I am determined to get that crib put together! And I am toying with the idea of looking through some of the stored baby clothes - although I might leave that for a week or two... Mainly because I don't fancy adding to the growing mountain of laundry until we've got a handle on it again (I've been horrifically tired lately and not done much laundry, Hubby can't keep up with it on his own).

I'm back at the GD clinic on Wednesday for another growth scan and natter with the GD Team. I'm hoping - since I'll be 30 weeks then - that I might finally get that induction date! Although I do know I might have to wait another 3 weeks for that. I hope not. You all know how I like to plan ahead!

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…

Tom's 1st Jujitsu Grading

It's that time of year again! Jack and Tom have been preparing for their grading since September. Jack is used to the whole process now, but for Tom it was the first time. This time we were taking Jack's friend Rory with us - he goes to a different school but does jujitsu with the same club.

Tom was trying for his first belt which is white. Rory was going for orange, and Jack was going for blue.

As usual parents can't stay to watch, so after dropping the three of them off I went for a wander to get some steps in for my own fitness (and a coffee and mince pie) with Freddie. In the freezing cold and bitter wind of Morecambe in December! Lucky old Hubby and Georgie stayed at home in the warm! Freddie didn't rate it at all - if he wasn't still 100% a boobie baby I wouldn't have dragged him out in it and left him home in the warm too.

When I got back to the school and queued up to get in and watch the belts be awarded I wound up chatting with another mum. We got on…
