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!
After two and a half years in a long-distance relationship, I packed my life of 29 years into 21 boxes and moved to England to marry and be with my husband, Matt. Now I'm reveling in the youth of my 30s in Great Britain, supply-teaching in primary schools near Birmingham and enjoying newlywed life, being a mommy, and all the surprises they bring!
