My due date is fast, fast approaching. I am at the point in my pregnancy where the unknown is a little bit daunting. I could have the baby tomorrow…or nearly a month from tomorrow. Only Mother Nature knows!
To put my mind at ease, I decided to pack up my hospital bag tonight. I have delivered three babies already, so I have a pretty good idea of what to bring along. Less is more. Comfort is key.
*New nursing pajamas from Seraphine Maternity. This two-piece lounge pajama set is made from supremely soft bamboo fabric. I think during the tough times of labor I will envision putting these pajamas on once the baby is born and I’m cleaned up. What nice motivation for me!
*Toiletries. The first shower after giving birth feels so good. Even though the hospital provides travel-size toiletries, I feel sooooo much better if I use the products my body is used to.
*And, perhaps most importantly, little outfits for the little man. Awwwwwww! This is becoming real now!
As soon as I pulled the tiny onesies out of the drawer, Evie sneaked down from her bed. She smiled wide when she realized what I was doing, and she asked how she could help. She folded the little outfits for her little brother. He sure is lucky to be born into a family with Evie as a big sister!
My parents are kindly waiting on-call to take Evie, Mack and Vivian at a moment’s notice. Of course I had to pack up a bag for them, too! A few days worth of warm clothes and cozy pajamas. Evie asked to pack a few toys, too.
Both bags are now packed and just waiting. Waiting for the birth of a little man we can’t wait to meet!
