Preparing for Baby...............
Life is all about the new baby arriving soon in our home.
With the arrival of our baby imminent, I have been trying to get the new-born baby clothes washed and ready.
As we don't know if our baby is a boy or girl this actually limits what I can prepare ahead of time.
So all the little items to go to hospital are white, except for the bunny-rugs of which I have a mix of boy and girl ones.
I know lots of people today dress their little baby boys in very boy clothes, but we always dress them in little nighties at home and special gowns for church on Sunday's until they are older.
But I love the feminine appeal of these and think they are much more lovely to be wearing, especially for a new mummy and baby.
I nearly always get positive comments from the nursing staff on this which I think is my bid for the 'mummy of many can still be pretty and dress attractively'.
Just in case anyone wonders I don't just wear these in hospital but also at home along with the others I own as well.
As you may guess we are very excited to be welcoming this special gift into our home soon. Apart from the various discomforts that I am having it is still going well and we are all very impatient to meet a little angel.
Oh and yes I think, yes unless Stephen changes his mind again,that we now have both a boy and a girls name ready.
So I will just plug along with the last few craft projects I am working on to welcome our baby and try to get the rest that helps me, even though I feel very lazy indeed.
Once again the blessings of wonderful and helpful older children.....thank you my darlings, once again I know how much I am blessed at these times.
Blessings to you and your homes,
