Little by little

Despite having a wedding, Little Flowers and other obligations this weekend, we did manage to make some forward progress in the baby department.

The bassinet is up. I love that. It reminds me how tiny little people are when they arrive. I always manage to forget that. I am so grateful when I see it sitting there. It means we've been blessed again with new life.

Tonight I also managed to get the hanging clothes of #s 2, 3 and 4 all into the same closet. This is no small feat considering we're "between seasons" and all (did you know there will be a low temp of 22 this week? Brrr). So, I guess it's "official" now that little girl is bunking with her two big brothers. It's turned out so much better than I had expected. They love her so much and she is truly amazed by their antics. I think it will work for the year or so that we need until the boys can move upstairs.

I like having three in one room. Not only is it easier to put people to bed, but I feel more true to the house in some way. There were 9 children in the original family that lived here and there were rooms that were yet to be finished. I'm pretty sure that means no one had their own room and at least a few rooms had three or more occupants. I feel like they're getting a head-start on residence hall living ;0)

So, I'm making progress and that makes me happy. I still have diapers to wash (someone email me and remind me how to do that!) and baby clothes to wash and put away (oh, I have to pack a bag for me too, huh?). You would think I would have this down by now. After that, we should be ready even if the time comes earlier than planned (it seems that sometimes babies with DS arrive ahead of schedule). God has his plan. I'm sure He'll let us know.

Have a blessed Monday :)


  1. I can't believe it almost time to see the face of your newest little blessing. An Easter birthday would be great, don't you think?

    1. Yes it would but don't do that to me. I'm not nearly ready!

  2. Sue -

    I think it is a great thing for your kids to be sharing rooms. Right now we have 4 boys in one room, and another room that is empty. They couldn't wait for Aidan to join the group when he was about 2. Eventually it will probably end up with the 2 older boys in one room and the 3 younger ones in another.
