Back in the swing of things!

Vacation was good. It had it’s issues, but for the most part we all had a wonderful time. I need to get my photos organized and write all about it. I am happy to be home, and am really working on baby stuff now (since I only have 16 weeks left!!!!!!!!)
I love making him things while he is kicking away inside. It’s the most wonderful connection.
Up first, a woolie outfit. Knit, dyed, and sewn by me.
And the diapers I’ve made (aren’t the umbilical fold downs the cutest?)-
I’ve been working on these a bit at a time. I think I may finish up the 3 I have cut out, and move on to sewing the next size. I will have 26 fitteds (14 made by me) & 18 prefolds (6 by me) for the newborn stage, and I am hoping that’s enough. I used cloth on Joey from birth, but I had a diaper service that dropped off enough diapers for a week, so running out wasn’t a concern.
I am kind of getting antsy about what I need. I got rid of almost everything, since Joey was our last ;). We are handing down Joey’s carseat to the baby, so I need a new cover and straps for it (for a small fortune, since they have to come from the manufacturer). So, Joey needs a new one. We are probably going with the Britax Frontier, since it’s a 5 point harness until 80 pounds…. I tell you, the joys of carseat comparison shopping are just endless. And to add to my list of requirements for a seat, Joey is VERY particular about the color of it.
And I need to get a couple of missing pieces for the cosleeper I got second hand.
That’s my list.
What else? You would think that I would have this baby thing down pat. But I feel totally lost. I guess that’s what 4 years between babies will do to you.
