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!

Romance

Now, we don't really do Romance, Yorkie and I. We're not the sort of couple that goes to posh restraunts, buy hearts and flowers on a whim etc, but last night we had a really sweet night. We didn't really do much that was classically romantic, it was the mood, the feeling in the air, if you know what I mean....? I cooked us steaks for tea, which is always a winner for Yorkie (his second fav after anything pork) and had the candles lit in the front room. Not that I was going for a romantic atmosphere, I just like to have candles lit on cold dark nights. We snuggled up on the settee together, watching nothing much on telly, all warm and cozy under a blanket, with the cat curled up o us. We'd been talking a little bit about the wedding and stuff, and about what my doc had said to me about what to do before we start a family. Yorkie's eyes went all soft and sweet, he was hugging me close and saying all the right kind of sweet thinks that I love to hear. It was on

International Babywearing Week

This is AWESOME! And I didn't even know about it until this year! International Babywearing Week ! I am a big fan of babywearing, although my journey to comfortable, workable babywearing was a slow one. With Jack and Tom I tried a variety of strap and buckle slings and they never really suited us. I gave up with them and thought that babywearing was for other people. Then when I had Georgie my step-mum gave me a Moby cloth wrap sling that she had found at a car boot sale. It came with a book of instructions for how to tie the sling and how to fit baby in safely and comfortably. I gave it a try. Georgie loved it. I loved it. I was totally sold! So from then on when ever I went shopping, or on the school run with the older boys, or to visit friends, or anything.... I popped Georgie in the Moby Wrap. He was comfortable, warm, close to my heart and his much loved boobies (I breastfeed), he could see the world around him, and was a very very happy baby! When I found out

Tom wanted a go at cooking this week. And beef kofta curry was his choice! Big helping hand from mum but he worked had and we had fun singing in the kitchen while we cooked. This "teaching life skills" is alright you know
