With the imminent arrival of gorgeous niece and Aunty S tomorrow, we got our backsides in gear this morning and did our first actual proper shop of baby things. In fairness we did an Ocado order recently to pick up nappies, wipes, cream, forumla etc, but this was the first time we’ve been on a joint venture into Mothercare with a list of *things*. It was just the last few essentials (i.e what good is a cot without sheets and a blanket?!), but it does make everything feel more complete.
One of the clearest bits of advice I’ve been given is YOU CAN NEVER HAVE TOO MANY MUSLINS. I’m sure if we start with 24….. we’ll be ok! We also picked up a second hand baby bath for £3 today!
The house is slowly being taken over with baby things. The baby room (for some reason I hate the word “nursery”) is looking much more finished with this adorable fleece blanket on sale in Mothercare:
Baby has also received it’s first proper pressie from the lovely A&E (as I call them):
And there’s other evidence spilled around the house….
The last picture is my exciting accidental purchase at a summer fayre I was attending. On my way out, I suddenly saw a fully pram “system” in great condition for £70. Bargain! Sadly the online reviews show a less-than sturdy frame, but fingers crossed we’ll be ok! It’s a Hauck Malibu for anyone interested.
Tonight I’m going to the final part of the exciting big wedding we’ve been attending. I’m absolutely dressing the bump to the nines, and it’s going to be absolutely OUT THERE. Should be fun!
Better go and start getting ready!
