36 Weeks and Nesting Update

At 36 weeks, we are 4 weeks away from our guess date!  So, I wanted to give you a quick update. 36 weeks was also the date I had in mind to get all of my projects around the house done… which of course has not happened.  But I am making some progress! Baby is…

The Final Stretch

Over the last few weeks, as Tiny One’s birth is imminent, we are finishing some “nesting” details and trying to keep ourselves occupied! Since my awesome younger sister is letting me borrow her car during her winter break, we were able to install the car seat last weekend! We took our time making sure we…

A Car Seat and Stroller for Tiny One

We received our car seat and stroller at our shower and put it together shortly after – I can’t believe it has taken me so long to share with you!  The car seat we got is a Graco Snugride Click Connect 40 (the most recent edition of their car seat).  This car seat has some…

Nesting Update: Monday, November 19th

I am starting to feel good about where we are in the “nesting” process!  The apartment is definitely not perfect (will it ever be?), but I am getting more comfortable that if something were to happen and Tiny One were to come early we would be ready. Last weekend was momentous as we put together…

Nesting Update: November 9th

Prepping My Prefolds

I am getting excited to use my gdiapers!  (Is it weird that I am excited about diaper changes and doing extra laundry…?)  I plan on using mostly cloth, but did get some of the biodegradable refills for while we are working out the kinks and in case I ever run out of cloth.  We may…

Nesting Update: November 2nd

8 weeks to go until my due date!!  (Actually, a little less now!)  And I want to have as much as possible in place for Tiny One by 36 weeks (when she is technically full-term) so that I can spend that last month relaxing and so she can come whenever she is ready.  So, that…

A Dresser for Tiny One

This past weekend was exciting as we received Tiny One’s dresser and put it together!  We decided to go with Ikea’s Hemnes dresser – which has four small drawers on the top and four larger drawers on the bottom.  I am quite pleased with the amount of storage that it provides!  The plan is to…
