Easter is just weeks away and with my baby girl due in ten days I am realizing that I am not on top of my usual Easter planning. I have been too busy nesting for our spring addition to realize that the end of March is just weeks away and I had better get a game plan together since I may be too sleep deprived after the baby arrives to put anything coherent together. I typically give the kids a handful of books and candy and I started a tradition last year where my kids set their empty baskets outside their door before bed to be filled by the Easter bunny. Then we can reuse baskets each year without there being any suspicions about why the Easter bunny brings the same basket every year and we are not wasting or accumulating dozens of baskets.
Now back to nesting. Curious about what have I been up to?
I made sister lap quilts for the girls, have had help rearranging and shifting furniture in different rooms to get ready for baby, continue to organize and reorganize things throughout the house and have also been getting miscellaneous household and financial things in order.
Although little miss will bunk in my room for the first few months, I have been getting the future nursery ready and treated myself to a new rocker to replace our old, beat up one. This beauty has the perfect support for my delicate back and for nursing, soft organic cotton upholstery, rocking feet that will not break like the gliders I have previously owned and beautiful curves. Sometimes there are not a lot of needs with a third baby, but there are definitely many things that need upgrading or just bring joy (especially when purchased on clearance with a coupon code). I washed my newborn diapers this week, have my hospital bag packed and almost ready to go and will continue to nest as I wait for the magical day when she will make her entrance into this world.
Getting spring fever or want to add some color and fluff to your Easter baskets this year? Kelly’s Closet is hosting a fun little egg hunt across some blogs for a chance to win a bundle of fluff and get an exclusive coupon code while you are at it. You can get the full details on the Diaper Shops blog, but basically you can enter to win a lovely spring bundle of fluff and will be hunting for hidden “eggs” on each of the participating blogs to put letters together to spell out an exclusive coupon code for this event.
To find my hidden egg you will want to “drop down” and see what style of newborn diaper was my favorite with my son. We will see very shortly if another style or a particular brand stand out to me when cloth diapering my new daughter!
