Mom Life
final baby prep

The road to baby girl #2’s arrival has been quite different than our journey with Corinne.  Life is busy, and there is a low-keyness that comes with preparing for a baby the second time.  In the back of my mind, I knew she would still come and life wouldn’t fall apart if all the little details weren’t in place.  I do feel like things have finally come together this week, so I’m officially serving your eviction notice, baby girl!  We are ready to meet you 🙂

I had so many creative ideas of different things we could do with the new nursery.  In the end, though, it was such a relief to carry over all of Corinne’s baby decor.  What a time and energy saver!  Plus, it is all so cute, and I still love the look.  We added new details here and there to make the room it’s own – I love the wooden “S” on the wall.

Corinne picked out the stuffed pig for baby girl…we are going to bring it to the hospital so she can give her new sister a present!

favorite baby toiletry goodies (wipes, diaper cream, body lotion)

All of these items (minus the Ball jar) are from IKEA.  Can’t wait to fill the empty frames with some sweet newborn photos!

Sweet little details on the dresser (also from IKEA)

This little two-tier basket is probably my favorite little detail I found for the nursery.  Perfect for housing a few of her little bows and necessities…and I smile every time I look at it!

I’ve also got our bags pretty much all packed…besides a few last minute items I use every day, and Brian’s stuff.  I try to keep our packing very light for the hospital…in the end, they will supply most all basics that we need!  Here are some of my hospital visit essentials:

for me:

  • comfy clothes – mostly yoga pants, t-shirts, sweatshirts
  • slipper socks with non-slide grips on the bottom
  • bag of travel-size toiletries, minimal makeup, chapstick, brush, glasses, hair ties

for baby girl:

  • sleeper outfits
  • hair bows & hat
  • swaddles & blankets
  • Boppy pillow
  • car seat

misc. items:

  • phone & charger
  • camera
  • iPad
  • insurance paperwork
  • big sister & little sister gifts

Pretty much the only thing left to do is spend some quality time with my little family, and maybe squeeze in a nap or two.  You know sleep is about to become very scarce around here 😉
