Talking So excited!

My baby girl is due in 2 weeks and I have been happily chugging along at the sewing machine, mostly when my son naps or goes to sleep at night. In the past month I have gotten a lot done and I just wanted to share with other mamas who get it. I have a couple of friends who do and DH actually loves everything and has been amazingly supportive. I plan to test the WAHM waters out with some of the kinds of stuff I have made but the following are for our family use.

Pictures to come when I can use our computer but i'll just tell for now

I can't believe I finished:

12 postpartum mama cloth (8 cotton flannel, 4 obv topped)
Totally redoing 25 newborn sposoeasys (they had holes on their inners and soakers so i replaced all of that)
8 nursing pads (i like to call them boobles)
2 newborn diapers from scratch
1 large wet bag
Designing, creating and finishing 1 os ai2 with bonus pocket (i am super happy with it, I finished tonight and I'm hoping my toddler lets me check it for toddler fit on him. He is in big boy undies and was diapered in sposies before but he patiently lets me treat him as guinea pig sometimes)
2 chux pads
4 ai2 inserts
Revamping a bumgenius with bad PUL into pretty much a new diaper

I'm very happy I got it all done. Baby girl can come now and I would be happy!

Re: So excited!

I'm nesting. Can you tell? lol. I nest for like 2 months before baby comes, its insane but helps me to cope with waiting. I don't have patience for most things, with the huge exception of my son and most likely my daughter. I somehow ended up with an overabundance of patience for my kiddos.
