35 weeks - show and tell
We've been shopping! "Baby, baby on a Budget," was today's household song.
I have been waiting for this moment for so long. We are so close, and there is no more work I can do ... and I have been so patient, waiting til bub is far enough along to buy all those gorgeous little baby things we all love... working on the house and saving money so we can buy lovely things for our babe.
My, my - how annoying we don't know gender. Kata and I fell for the little blue and pink booties. So cute you could kiss them. There were some divine pink bedding sets, and some gorgeous blue boy themed sets. But we stuck with gender-neutral - white, cream and lemon - booooring.
I present to you some of today's purchases.
Cot netting. Bad cat Lucy has been caught in the cot twice. This is my attempt to keep her out. It closes at the front and covers the cot completely. She is too fat to squeeze through the slats. We'll keep the cot covered and watch what she does before baby comes. If we catch her in the cot again I'm afraid she's off to live at Camp Aunty Sally.
A baby bouncer with "soothing vibrations". Pull the banana in the middle and the lion roars (like a kitten), or the monkey says "Ha ha ha, hoo hoo hoo" and it plays a tune that I think is "Here we go loobie loo, here we go loobie lie, here we goo loobie loo, all on a Saturday night". Now that's a blast from the past. This kid stuff is so much fun!
Meg's latest bargain buy. We ordered a change table, exactly like this one for $299. Came home and picked one up at ebay for $85. I love a bargain. Must be the Scottish in me.
And finally some house pics, not that I care about the house right now, I am so over the house, I just want our baby NOW!!!!
We have lights. I had a couple of down lights moved so I can have a chandelier above the dining table, but I swear I am going to put in a mirror ball instead. How rocking to have dinner under roving disco mirror lights.
Our workable kitchen. Gas, power and water is on. Only thing to put in now is the deep red duo-glass splash back and range hood. Floors were meant to be started today but the sander got the dates wrong (grrrrrr) and I think he will be here tomorrow. I no longer care. I am over the house, completely sick to death of painting, and touching up and seeing all the flaws. I want to ignore it, go to India and meet my beloved baby. We cut it fine, and got the house livable ... bravo team Meg, Bob and Kata!!!
