What I've been doing :

I haven't posted for a while and this is why, I've been getting all the baby stuff ready. You may be thinking, oh why is her baby due next week? The answer is no, I am a little OCD. I just don't want to be doing everything at the end, or during the holidays, or even worse after the baby gets here. So this my baby cupboard, I made a list, and I have bought everything from, nursing pads, to formula, to new binkis, etc.
This might sound like bragging, and I'm sorry, but Heather, (my sis-in law) let me borrow her little twins' clothes, plus I have all of Reese's clothes. It took me a whole week to get all the laundry washed and put away, I'm glad I didn't wait till Jan. to start. So thanks again to Heather, because we have so many clothes now, I don't have to do laundry for probably a month, plus I think this baby will not be able to wear the same outfit twice. (Not to mention the 26 pairs of tiny shoes she sent me with.) Yes I know, it's called being spoiled :)

I also painted the room this week. Yes I know I am having a girl, and yes both their rooms are blue. But the picture doesn't do the color justice, because really it is a bright turquoise color. My next step, I think is to put polka dots all over the walls, and I need to make a few decorations. But I'm so close to being done. My goal is to have it done before Thanksgiving.I don't know what has gotten into me lately, making me think I can make things myself. But I just haven't found anything I like to buy, so I've made made everything. I made the bumpers, a quilt (which I forgot to take a pic of I just realized,) and the crib skirt. And I think they really turned out good. The bummer is they didn't have enough of the fabric I wanted to make my fitted crib sheet so I'm not sure what to do, I have some plain ones, but they're just not as cute.
Also I made two changing pad covers, they were really simple. But I do need to figure out how to make a mobile, and that might be a little bit hard, we'll see.
Anyway, now that I'm prob. 95% done with all the baby stuff I should be back to normal life. Hope everyone has a good holliday.

You are smart to get it done early. That way you are prepared and you don't have to buy everything at once and end up spending a couple of hundred dollars all at once. Your bedding and the bedroom are super cute. Way to go you!

Super cute! I love the color and all the bedding. You have to take a pic when the room is all done.

Didn't you just show me that material to make her stuff like a week ago? You are freaking awesome. All I have done since then is think, "man I really should call Katie to help me work my sewing maching so my husband doesn't have to wear church pants with a whole in the crotch"...yup true story, so don't look at church k? The baby's room is darling! You do such a good job:)

So did you make your Thanksgiving deadline? I went baby hunting this last week (quite discouraging) and wished I knew how to sew like you did. Maybe one day. But in the end I found something that might work so hope has been rekindled. Love you - talk to you soon.
