Finally I return to the blog! So as you might of guessed, Otto has arrived! One day early (lucky I had that hospital bag packed!!) Its taken me awhile to get back on the blog, a bit longer than I thought...this caring for a newborn baby business is pretty demanding, there has been a lot of  challenges especially the breast feeding!!! Wow that is one tough gig!! 
Little Otto showed us his smile for the first time the other day and I almost burst into tears I was so happy/excited. 
I'm still getting my head around my new role, learning something new every day, pretty sure these blog posts are going to be few and far between sorry!

What's in the bag

The hospital bag is all packed, its pretty bizarre having half my things and the other half filled with things for the baby. I stocked up on a few things I love like licorice bullets from the lollie shop (they have been a staple throughout the pregnancy) and burts bees lip balm, can't get enough of that stuff. I also have some hand knitted goodness for the babe in the form of an adorable hat and sock! And now we wait.

One more minty

One more mint green post! Just a few things from around the web that have taken my fancy... I want to plan another trip back to New York just to shop at the Sweet William kids clothing store, so cute!!

I just realized that there is a lot of mint in my life at the moment, I have had this oversize mint green jacket forever, I took these photos the other day before running out the door to attend my first mums and bubs movie session, clearly getting a head start since my bub is not yet here. It was great to go along with some friends and there peaceful little angles...not one single cry the whole movie! Here's hoping I don't let the team down!

I'm really excited to finally share some pics of the nursery, with 9 days until D-Day (who's counting :) I'm feeling very happy that the nursery is ready for its new occupant. I had so much fun decorating the room, making cushions and quilting my first blanket!

I have managed to contain the shopping addict inside me pretty well in regards to buying baby clothes, I have bought one or two suits but the rest of little ones wardrobe consists of hand me downs and gifts. I couldn't resist a little flutter on Bonds website, keeping it basic and gender neutral :) I would totally do a pair of the "Cord Roomies Pants" bottom left if they did them in adult sizes!

Count down

I'm now down to weekly appointments, I had the car seat installed this morning and the water retention (swollen feet and hands) has arrived. Ballet flats with elastic are now my go to shoe. I feel like I'm definitely on the home stretch now! Working on a craft project which I'm excited to share as soon as I'm done.

First day of winter and it's pretty darn chilly here in Melbourne town! I think a  cape is the ultimate in pregnancy winter wear, loving this simple version from American Apparel, so many colours to choose from!

Count down

37 weeks today!!! Its really hard to believe how quickly time has gone and that in a matter of weeks I won't be pregnant anymore. Things are certainly a little less comfortable at this stage, I well and truly have my waddle on and can't seem to get comfortable enough to manage more than 3 or 4 hours of sleep in a row. Overall though I can't really complain, now i know the end is near I'm getting pretty excited about meeting le bebe! Will it be a boy or a girl? blonde or brunette? will it even have any hair? ....not long now.
Here are some photos from weeks 15, 24, 31 and 37!

Shoe post 2

OK so continuing on from the theme of yesterdays post...shoes, how awesome are these Candela shoes!! The cut outs are not entirely winter appropriate but super cute with some opaques.


Boot weather

As the weather continues to get cooler the "shoe section" of my brain starts dreaming of new boots that I would like to own, oh how I would love to add all four of these ankle boots to my winter wardrobe, especially the blue ones!

The nesting has started, I put all the baby's clothes away then cleaned out the fridge and kitchen cupboard today and I have my sights set on the study tomorrow! I packed my hospital bag the other day too, I'm known for my pre-packing, I start to set things aside and pre-pack months before a holiday. Anyways it was pretty exciting to put together baby's first outfit for the trip home from the hospital, one can never be too young for leopard.

Winter Coat

Its well and truly time for the winter coat in Melbourne. It looks pretty funny with the top few buttons done up and a big polka dot belly peaking out the middle where the buttons no longer snap shut!
