oooh, sending labor vibes to you, Claire!!
(lookie, she's good for more than just baby dust, lol!!)
I'm not really nesting, but I am getting into "mode" as we call it around here. Just noticing the things that need to be done, getting more anxious about all the sewing I need to do, but I'm still pretty mellow. Part of it is that we have no extra money until May so there are a lot of things, like a new dresser for Ben, that have to wait until then. In the meantime, I'm hoping to whittle down my to-do list enough that it just all gets done
We will be ECing and using cloth dipes and training pants. I'm sewing up a ton and have been getting fancy with novelty stitching so my basic dipes are turning out to be much more than I'd planned
I so rarely get opportunities to do really fun stuff, so I'm kinda going to town. So far I've cut out, or plan to cut out:
teeny NB (hopefully will fit past 6 wks, but who knows) - 8 sherpa , 4 hemp knit terry, 2 hemp fleece fitteds all with the fancy stitching and matching snaps
a few interlock Poquito Pants and a few fleece covers
medium (2 - 9 mo) - 12 sherpa and 8 hemp knit terry fitteds (fancy like the NBs) about a dz fleece aios and covers, about 6 pul aios and covers and soem wool covers
large - a couple doz training pants, either hemp knit terry or cotton interlock some with pul outers. A doz or so fleece aio's, some fleece and wool covers
I'm starting on the small sizes and probably won't even get to sewing the larges until after the baby comes, but that size didn't fit Ben until past 6 mo, so I've got time for those.
Then I also have:
6 preemie CPF's
12 Gerber DSQ PF's (we used them for burp rags last time and probably will again, they were pretty piss-poor dipes, pun intended
I'm getting a doz each of Indian prefolds in NB and large
3 XS ElBee wooly bullies
1 Sm Apron strings pul cover
1 sm random, white, industrial-looking cover (like prowraps but I don't remember where I got it from)
6 NB Bitty Buns
1 sm Bitty Buns
1 sz0 Kissaluv
1 small Fuzbaby speckled egg
1 XS Angel Wrap QD (getting a few more of these!!)
1 XS Angel Wrap fleece aio
6 XS ElBee pocket fitteds w/ doublers
3 Sm ElBee fitteds
2 Sm Poquito Pants
a TON of doublers!
Hmm, now that I see it all written out, I think I've got the newborn fitteds pretty covered! It's so hard to tell what's there when it's all in bags around the house and in the closet! Just need a few more covers and I think I'm good to go.
OK, now that I've written a novel about my dipe obsession I guess I should go do some more sewing!
Hope you all had a good weekend!
