{preparing for Hayden..}

So Saturday, Harper and I headed out to the craft store across the street and hit up the major sale they were having.  I got the cutest fabric to make fun crafts for their room!  I'm not 100% sure what I'm making... but I have time.  Hayden won't completely move into their room for a few months after she's born. But... I'm excited none the less.

I actually don't really like making crafts.  ha. go figure.  But I do love making things for my little girls!! Plus... I can make it exactly like I want it.  So that's always a plus too!  Rob teased me, when I was pregnant with Harper - because I made everything for her nursery, he said I should make more and sell them.  um. no thank you.  this mama doesn't have time for that! maybe one day, when my girls are bigger and I have more free time on my hands, I'll actually enjoy it.

But.  Anyway.  Rob had also moved boxes of Harper's baby clothes down to our garage out of storage last week.  So today, we went through them and threw them in the washer.



I cried.  Like was super emotional.  I can't believe my Harper was ever that small!!! She's growing so fast!  She kept asking me if I was ok, ha!  To which I would respond, yes baby, mommy is just sad because you are growing up so fast.  She laughed.  every time! Stinker!

She sat, trying to make all the baby hats fit on her head and trying to get the baby shoes on her feet.  It was adorable.

Although, she just woke up from her nap saying, "harpers! not baby's!  HARPERS!"... not nothing in particular, but still.  yikes!  hopefully this transition isn't too hard. 

Later on, we then went to Target to register for a few things.  What do you register for when you're having a second girl in the same season?... basically what you now realize, as a second time mom, what you really need... diapers.  wipes.  necessities.  When my sister in law asked if she could throw me a shower - I initially told her I didn't think we needed one.  But then she began explaining how all of our family and friends want to celebrate with us, and maybe we could just do a sprinkle... or a diaper shower.  & that sounded perfect!  because, really - no matter how much you have for a baby already - that doesn't count diapers, diaper cream, new bottles, etc... So fun!  And of course, target's free gift never disappoints... plus the added discount right before the baby is born is great!
