This is me at 36 and a half weeks pregnant.

Leah and I have been getting ready for the new baby. This is the large roll of diaper flannel beside some newly sewn diapers. I’ll be reusing Leah’s diapers as they are thinner from so much wash and wear but as they babe grows these thicker ones will be great.

Leah loves hanging out in infant car seats. When we brought hers to our house from my parent’s, she insisted on strapping her doll in. At breakfast the next morning, she got up from her chair continually between her bites of oatmeal to console her doll, rock the seat and yell instructions into her doll’s face (“wake up!” and then one minute later “go to sleep” and repeat).

I bought a little outfit for a boy so now we are fully prepared for a boy or a girl. When Leah was born, my mom went out and bought a going home outfit for her while we were still in the hospital. I thought that might be a little more difficult this time around and she will have Leah to look after and I enjoyed looking for some blue. If it’s a girl, she will get to wear the same outfit we brought Leah home in.

I washed a bunch of baby clothes this week and am so amazed at how small they all are. I’m sure I’ll be even more in awe when they barely fit our babe for the first few weeks.


I’m not looking after any daycare kids this month so Leah and I have been enjoying lots of one on one time together in addition to visiting friends and playmates. Who needs a mixer when you have a toddler with a chair to stand on? We’ve been doing a lot of baking lately.

I’m so grateful that Leah plays on her own so well. Hopefully this will continue once the babe comes and my hands will be full a lot more than they are now. Here is Leah being silly while showing her sticker creation.
