Hello there…  There has been a bit of creating around our home at the moment.
A bit of nesting for this mama - 8 weeks out from having baby number 4.

And… you guessed it, it's meant to be a she!

I made a little birdie mobile for above the cot lastnight. With some old scrapbook paper and some twigs from the dormant apple tree out in front of the shed.  Five sweet little birdies to gently sway above the little one. 

It's been so lovely knowing what we're having so that I can just prepare the once.  This is the change and dressing area in our bedroom.  I love using a fold down wall hung table to change baby on.  We got it from Ikea waaay back when we were expecting my first born, and it's been a great way to change baby for tall me without having to bend right over.  It also allows for optimum nose snuggling and raspberry belly blowing while getting dressed and changed!  A basket of teeny (well for me - they're 000's) jumpsuits to take to the hospital, and some special dressy gear for baby's first outings - hung and at the ready.  

This is the wonderful Merino sleepsuit that Monty used till he was two from Nanny & Grandad - just girlified a wee bit.  

The bassinette is in our room with Ruby Red Shoes - gifted from big sister waiting to be chewed and snuggled on.  A knitted blanket from my Grandmother when we had Baxter fits just right. 

And in the kids room - baby's cot all prepared with a mama made qult and pillowcase.

Not long to go now.  Our family is about to be in love all over again!

Hi Amy,
Everything looks beautiful, what a lucky baby to have such a cosy looking bed. Won't be long & your wee girl will be here.

All looking very gorgeous, I can see it would be easier in some ways knowing what you are expecting. Enjoy your next 8 weeks, we are hoping ours will arrive any day now, can't wait
