I’ve been so grateful that this time around, this pregnancy has been much smoother than my first. Not too many symptoms and not as many worries with it being the second. But, that has caused for it to go much quicker! I hit thirty weeks last week and it dawned on me that we’ve officially entered the countdown mode. With only about 9 weeks to go until my due date, it’s really settling in that another little girl will be living in this home.
In gearing up for the new baby we’ve been mainly focused on our two-year-old. To make room for her new little sister, we decided to switch our her of the nursery and into her own room. It came with a lot of change, a new room, new bed, and no more bottles and we met a lot of resistance. We’re on the upswing now and just in time to start turning our attention to the nursery.
I’m not going to lie, these photos do not give an accurate portrayal of this room in its current state. The other corner of the room is filled with boxes of hand-me-down newborn clothes from big sister, linens, and abandoned baby toys and books. I started taking inventory of the things we still need to gather for this new baby. And while I thought we had everything we needed, even clothes-wise, I realized that our two little girls are seasons apart.
Our hand-me-downs are filled with t-shirts, light summer pieces, and missing some vital winter necessities. I used the opportunity and a well-timed Carter’s sale to pick up on the essentials, some classic long-sleeve bodysuits, and bunting for our November baby.
And like any nesting mamabird would do, I immediately washed the sweet newborn clothing and dried them instead of organizing the mess behind the camera. I can’t bear to take them down and put them away, because who doesn’t like seeing teeny tiny baby clothes? This is the only view I can see when I walk by anyway.
I also entered this amazing giveaway that Carter’s is hosting which is filled with all of the essentials for baby. I’ll provide the info below for you to join in too:
