Life Tidbits

- Christmas cards are ordered. Yay! Yes, I'm late. 

- Maternity pictures are in. Woohoo! I can't wait to share them. 

- We go live with a new computer system at work today. Wish us luck! 

- It cost $170 to take Diesel to the vet yesterday for an ear infection. Ugh. 

- We picked up 6 containers of baby girl stuff/clothes from my cousin yesterday. Such a blessing!

- I have been a baby clothes organizing and sorting fool lately. I'm obsessed.

If I'm at home, you can find me in the nursery. Although I'm kinda silly because I seriously cannot make a decision about what items should go in what drawers. I ask my husband like it's the end of the world. He looks at me like I'm crazy. First time mom problems.

So many sweet clothes! I can't wait to see how it all comes together! She is one blessed baby!

I hear ya with the organization!! I finally found a system that I *think will work. I hung most of her clothes and have them by size...easier to see I thought? Her pjs are in one drawer, socks in another... I love the organizers I bought for the closet too. I need to get my husband to help finish this nursery so I can share what I've done! :) Don't you just love playing with her clothes??? So precious.

I love seeing the stack of Emory's baby clothes! How sweet! I haven't had my showers yet, but we are slowly building up a stockpile over here. :) We have received our Christmas cards--but they aren't addressed yet. I definitely feel behind!!

Hahaha! Seriously!! It stresses me out trying to figure out which drawer should hold which items :)
So lucky about all the hand me downs! I just can't wait to see her.... she's going to be insanely adorable!

Traci said...

Good luck with the new computer system. Been there done that & it was sooooo NOT FUN!!

Lauren said...

yeah, you'll probably be switching those drawers up no matter which one you choose! ha!

and woohoo for hand-me-downs...i got 2 giant tubs from a good friend & that was just for sizes up through 12 months! Not sure what we're going to do now that we have to start buying clothes for her on our own! ha!

if you can, hang everything up. when you are getting squirmy little ones dressed you can't go from draw to closet, etc. plus sometimes if you don't see it you don't own it. i kept diapers, wipes/tushy cream, socks/tights, and pajamas in drawers. everything else got hung up (even shorts). i still do this even today with my kiddo's clothing and they know that everything is in one place. plus the pair of shorts you want is always at the bottom on the drawer and the whole drawer gets messed up just for one item. of course, that's just my way...

I'm ALL about consignment! With my son, he grows too quickly to go out and buy new clothes when there is barely used clothes for him at yard sales, list serves and Goodwills. Jealous of those 6 containers.

LOVE all your baby stuff! Can't wait to see your mat photos!! Cruz has had ear infections all month..not fun on the wallet for sure. And I feel so bad for them!! :(

Beth Ann said...

I was the same way about the drawers! I put sleepers/gowns/sleep sacks in one. Onesies and play clothes in others. Socks in a small one and random things in the other small one (junk drawer). I hung up pretty much all outfits/"good" clothes. Had baskets at top of closet for hats/bath stuff/shoes/receiving blankets/bibs/burp cloths. Although, now H's shoes are in a bottom dresser drawer. I got some nifty clothes size dividers from etsy for the closet. Usually only had the current size and maybe some next size hanging up at once. As long as you know where everything is, it's all good! :)

Allison said...

Wow...all those clothes!! That's awesome Meg! And I can't wait to see your pictures. (PS you aren't late with the card ordering...our pictures don't come in until Sunday so I'm cutting it close this year, oops!)

Rebekah said...

I can't wait to see your maternity pictures! What a blessing to receive so many SWEET baby girl things!

Jenny said...

Ehhh, I hate the vet. They always steal my money!
All the clothes are too cute--can't wait to see the pictures!

Angie said...

I'm so excited to see Maternity Pics!!!

Ashley said...

That is ALOT of clothes! Yeah for being getting hand me downs. They really are the best when babies are little and grow so fast and go through so many outfits in a day!

Jessica said...

Hope you're go-live went smoothly! I'm ordering our cards on Friday so you're not too late (Mine will show up in mailboxes on Christmas at this rate!) Em is 3 and the Hubs still doesn't get my obsession with her closet and where clothes go

Tami said...

Oh I can't wait to see your maternity pictures! EEK! Seeing all of those tiny baby clothes gives me some serious itty bitty baby fever!! You are going to have so much fun dressing your precious girl!

Fran said...

Melissa could organize the closet in no time! I wish I had that gift. I really want you to meet Landry! I am too scared to get the child out but maybe we will make it that way soon! Emory has more clothes than I have ever seen for a baby ;)
