A Few Projects

I have been a little bit crafty lately. I have a lot of stuff to get done before our little lady arrives, not just the fun crafts. Here is a little taste of my pre-baby to-do list:
  • Clean every square inch of the house. I will probably do this a dozen times in the next month and a half!
  • Clean out the car. Currently the back seat offers a breathtaking sampling of Bumblebee's fur.
  • With regard to the above issue I am sewing a car seat cover to keep the fur from taking over again. So far I have found a cool retro sheet and now I just have to sew it up right.
  • Have several meals ready/frozen.
  • Meet pediatrician.
  • Regular check-ups. I go every other week at this point.
  • Set up all of the baby stuff. This is generalized because it involves more steps than you probably want to read about.
  • Pre-check in at the hospital.
  • Go over Bumblebee sitting with Sam. He's the designated dog watcher while we're at the hospital.
  • Child birth prep class. I go tomorrow. I don't want to watch a labor video...
  • Child care class. Eric and I have been around tons of little babies, but we decided to take a class. I am not sure that there is really anything that they can tell us, but we're just excited to do baby related activities at this point.
  • Baby shower! I am excited!!!!
I could go on and on, but that would just be a bit overwhelming. Also on my list was to make a second dog bed for Bumblebee. She has one in the living room and one in the bedroom. I finished one earlier this summer, but it took me some time to get around to the second one.

She seems to approve.

With the leftover scraps from the dog bed I made a little scarf or something, I am not really sure what it is but I hung it on the window.

What would you call it?

Finally I have started a few little pieces of art for the baby. I am not quite finished, but here is the progress I have made.

It's so nice to share your excitement and planning for your new arrival! I love how you said you just wanted to do baby related things at this point.

I bet the baby will love bumblebee's beds too! :)

I think Bumblebee has an amazing bed! Lucky dog :) Looks like you have quite the list there, but thankfully most already accomplished. Nesting I see has set in ;)

Ah, it's nice to see you have a list too. I'm not the only one. :) My list doesn't include baby stuff just yet. The house itself has a lot to be done before it's baby-ready...
Love the artwork and fabric you used on Bumblebee's bed.
