I can’t help it. I’m sorry. I’ve just got to share the cute little things I’ve bought and made for Munchkin. I promise to continue to make items and to post threads that are not baby-centric but at the moment I’m 32 weeks pregnant, I’m struggling to touch my toes and my brain is baby-fied (or ‘baby-fried’ depending on the day). I can think about little more than getting all of the equipment, buying the right clothes for her pending arrival, bearing jabs to the ribs (she’s certainly getting strong!) and trying to keep cool in the Summer heat wave we’ve been experiencing here in Switzerland.
We’ve organised her cradle; she’ll be sleeping in a Leander cradle in our room for the first few months and then, in the new year, will move into the nursery into a Leander Bed that should do her until she’s about 7 years old. We’ve not ordered the bed yet, but as we won’t need it until January we’re not panicking about it. And I’ve made a fair dint in the clothing requirements, so at least she’ll have something to wear in the first few weeks and months!
The little outfit in the photo’s is her coming home outfit. The stunningly simple but luxuriously soft cotton onesie/ bodysuit is by The Little White Company. They had a fabulous sale on a few weeks ago and so we stocked up on some basics and some Summer clothing for Munchkins trip to Australia at Christmas. And the little cardigan and matching hat are made by Marèse. I picked them up on sale at a gorgeous little boutique in Thonon-les-Bains called Le Secret d’Alice. Made out of cotton, bamboo and silk they’re so soft! I was exceedingly tempted by the little cloud bodysuit they had but decided that even though my husband and I have issues with the ‘dress little girls in pink and boys in blue’ rules that seem to be the norm here, I couldn’t resist putting her in a coral outfit to bring her home.
I’ve now just got to make some matching booties.
This week we’re going on an eye-wateringly expensive shopping trip for the looooong list of items that seem to be required for Munchkin (DM has already noted that this is probably the first of many, just wait until she demands a pony! ). We were spurred to get our derrières in gear last week, when the doctor delivering Munchkin advised that it’s likely she may arrive early due to her size.
Whilst Munchkin is currently only tiny, the amount of equipment she needs feels like it could fill an aircraft hanger! We’ve decided to do all the basics and to worry about decorating the nursery later. Mainly because I’ve been unable to decide what to do, what I have decided on isn’t going to happen in this heat, and we’ve a little time up our sleeves as Munchkin wont be using the room regularly until January.
