I don’t know what it is about me and babies, but for whatever reason, I am not the kinda of mama who has the nursery planned out and done months before the baby’s arrival. I’m the kind of mama who is scrambling with two weeks left, because I always think I have more time than I do!
With that said, even though the new “kids room” isn’t quite done, even though I still have to finalize this sweet baby’s registry, even though we haven’t painted the bedroom or gotten the carpets cleaned yet, I’ve been preparing my heart. And that’s the most important thing. I’ve been writing in my pregnancy prayer journal, I’ve been memorizing scripture, and I’ve been doing what I call “entrepreneurial nesting” : working like crazy in my business to make sure my team is cared for while I’m gone.
We don’t know the gender of this sweet baby, but there are a few things that I want to do to make Baby Ray #2’s arrival just as special as Milly’s. I found these adorable items on Baby Cubby, and I love how sweet they are!
1. Freshly Picked Moccasins. I never got any with Milly, but I always wanted them! So adorable.
2. A little deer from the new baby to Milly We’ll give this to her in the hospital
3. A little boy striped outfit
4. A little girl headband
5. A woodland blanket
