I started with sorting through six crates of baby clothes; four of my own and two from my oldest and dearest friend Laura. I have done more laundry and sterilizing in the past week then I think I've done all year. It's ridiculous the amount of clothes this child has. Here's a peak.
Keep in mind this doesn't include the 50, yes 50, onesies I have stacked in a basket or the 3 baskets of shoes and 40 sleepers/knit pant suits. She even has 4 never worn bathing suits with matching cover ups. And get ready for this; I did not have one shower. Insane right? When people ask me what I need and I say nothing, I seriously mean NOTHING. Oh wait, diapers, yes I need lots of diapers. Ha!
In other nesting news, we are anxiously anticipating the arrival of our new antelope stair runner. It was a bit of a splurge but well worth it. We've all taken our fair share of spills down the stairs so it's long overdue.
And lastly, I recently ordered this Winterthur carpet from the Martha Stewart Home Depot line for the girls rooms. I ordered the Sharky Gray color and the photo below looks much more gray than in person. It's more in the beige family is subtle gray undertones. We are having it custom cut and binded to perfectly fit each room three inches off the wall. Our entire second floor is hardwoods and hopefully this will muffle the sounds that vibrate through the house when anything falls on the floors.
That's all for now. More to come soon.
