Year 2 Day 20: Baby Loot

Matt popped over to his parents' to pick up some things we needed to have printed off and he came home with this fabulous surprise. My mother-in-law, Josie, has been busy getting together little bits for bunny and this sight put the biggest grin on my face after a pretty crap day at home without work and feeling as though my entire pelvic region had been broken and left inside my skin.

Anyway, let's have a closer look at the goods, shall we?

We'll begin with nappies (x 192) which should easily last for the first month of bunny's existence. (And let me just say I never thought I'd be so excited over nappies.)

Behold! Cute, stripey sleeper with a little mouse and I'm loving what it says!

Some teddy bear items...namely the 'hungry little bear' bibs. How cute are they?! And the little knitted baby blanket is SO soft! I want it for myself to cuddle, if I'm being honest.

Finally, a close-up of the set of burping cloths (or 'feeding' cloths as the packaging reads). They have BUNNIES on them...for OUR bunny!!

The bedding for the Moses basket has also arrived, but Matt had run out of room in his car with everything else, so I will have to pop round later this week to get it. I can't wait! I told Matt I'm questioning if we will run out of room in the small cupboard where we have been storing all the baby things until the nursery is completely cleared out. He had to remind me that to be fair, I do have it set up like a display-case and not so much to accommodate things sensibly -- so it looks like I have a project for the rest of the week.

This is all making me so excited (moreso than I already am) for our little man's arrival and Matt and I are SO incredibly thankful for Josie's thoughtfulness. With all these people to love him, this is going to be one lucky little baby!

Cute stuff! I just wanted to let you know though, that 200 diapers probably won't last you quite as long as you think. They say to expect 10-12 a day for the first few weeks...yikes!! lol Right now Sarah goes through probably 8 a day..which is down from what it once was. Oh the joys of changing diapers :)

lol, I was gonna say that same thing about the diapers. Prepare to be shocked:)

That stuff is sooo cute! back when my sons were born they didn't have much cute stuff for boys.I'm so happy for you.

Haha, I love how you have totally switched to the British "nappies" instead of diapers :)

Cute stuff!
