I'm sorry, but it's all I can think about
(painted glasses make me happy)
Hello to you on this rainy morning. Rainy morning. I love how that sounds. I've decided today is a good day for arts & crafts but first I have to pay some bills and figure out exactly how much money I've spent lately. I fear it's a lot. Nursing bras don't come cheap, you know.
I'm pretty much to the point where I feel I have everything I want to have before baby comes. I got him a tiny hoodie for him last night. It's very cute and brown. I do mourn all the hoodies I had for James and gave away. A good hoodie is hard to find.
I say "pretty much" because my sister sent me a link to this this morning and now I want it. It's basically a cross between a bassinet and a bouncy seat...the best of both worlds in my experience. It takes away the stigma of having to say your child sleeps in a bouncer or a car seat, as I have had to do with both of mine, and looks so flipping cozy. And it's tall, which is really nice. Hmmmm. I know Patrick will say no, just like he did when I wanted the baby papasan bouncer. bastard. (HA!) (which I now see only comes in swing form. My kids have never used a swing much...so far, anyways.)
The other thing on my mind now? These swaddling blankets by aden + anais. We are BIG swaddlers in this house, still sometimes swaddling James & Ruby. (whoops! did I say that out loud?) We've always done okay in the past with the old fashioned baby blanket...at least in the beginning. As the babes aged & the seasons changed we've turned to cut up pillow cases (in the softest old cotton) and tshirts. I'm thinking...100% cotton muslin? Sewn in a square? Sounds pretty easy. I found some unbleached muslin online and am going to call JoAnn's and see if they carry it in the store so I can go feel it. Might be worth a shot if I end up with my own lightweight blankets for 1/4 the cost. (If I can't find any cotton that feels really good, these might be a splurge I will consider.)
And now I will stop because I have to do the financial stuff before Ruby gets ho e. And because you're probably very bored. :)
