Okay, truthfully, it will probably be more like 7 weeks, but Sophie's actual due date is 6 weeks from today. I was thinking I had a little bit longer, not that I am complaining! I realized a couple of days ago there are probably a few things I should be doing, like washing her clothes, making sure she has clothes that will be sufficiently warm, and finding some cradle sheets.
Yesterday I went through Emma's boxed up clothes. I had forgotten how cute some of this stuff is! Luckily, since Emma was born at the end of November, I won't need to buy all new clothes for a different season. Most of Emma's old things are relatively warm, even though we were in California when she was born. I have supplemented Sophie's wardrobe with a warm fleece bunting for the first few months... I am hoping she will be warm enough!
How do people keep their newborn warm enough when going out in the winter in cold regions? I am planning on keeping several blankets in the car, and utilizing the new bunting. If you have had a baby in a place that is really cold in the winter, give me some tips... Just don't suggest not going out... With 3 older siblings it won't be possible to sit at home watching old 1950's syndicated reruns!
