As I've said before the other half and I have most essential items from when our son was little but I've started writing a list of things we'll definitely need before baby no2 gets here. Nothing that exciting but things like nappies, wipes, sleepsuits etc. I should probably start writing a list of things I'll need for my hospital bag and the baby's hospital bag as well. You can never be too prepared really.
Logan's room is almost complete now and I'm practically vibrating with energy to have it finished so our attention can be turned to organising the baby's nursery. The walls are all painted, the wallpaper has been put up and his new big boy bed is in place complete with cool superhero bedding. All I need now is for his chest of drawers and rocking chair to be painted so they fit in with the colour scheme. I'm keeping my eyes open for a superhero bean bag of some description to add to the look. There's a Marvel Avengers one on the Very website or they also have a couple of Spiderman ones which look quite cool. Considering a couple of cushions for his bed and maybe a Captain America Shield rug for the floor. Can't wait till it's done. It'll look great but it's one less thing to think about.
As for the baby's room we've decided on a farm type theme with cute farmyard wallpaper for one wall as a feature and just accessorising with little bits and pieces as I find them. I know the Early Learning Centre have a Blossom Farm range so might check that out although everything doesn't have to match, a mix can be nice sometimes.
The baby is now around 2.5 pounds in weight (about the size of a butternut squash) and just over 15 inches long from head to toe, no wonder it's starting to feel even more cramped in there these days! Every day is party day for the baby it seems as it moves around like crazy. Sometimes it feels like it's making a rolling movement quite low into my pelvis and this normally has me running for the toilet before I wee myself. Supposedly the baby's sucking reflex has developed quite well recently and it can now suck it's thumb and fingers which sounds really cute. I've noticed I'm starting to feel a bit more breathless when doing the house work so have to take regular breaks (well that's my excuse anyway) and it's harder for me to get comfy enough to sleep at night. Let's hope a few cushions can sort that out as entertaining a nearly 5 year old is hard work sometimes.
