So with that in mind, I did some things today to try and help bring back the joyful anticipation of our baby! The first was that we bought a used Kenmore portable washing machine for the apartment from a family in our neighborhood. I'm happy to say it works great!! And we were able to do our first load of laundry in the apartment today!! (What does this have to do with babies you ask? Well, babies produce a lot of laundry. And therefore we felt this would make our lives easier!) Here's a pic of our new machine and how it fits nicely into the kitchen.
|The little black thing at the bottom is a doorstop with a mouse on it to keep the washer from rolling. Our floor is slightly uneven in that spot. Ha!|
|That's the machine back in the corner. See it fits in pretty easily!!|
After our laundry experience, we were pretty lazy...but this evening I did some more work on a quilt for the baby. I'd started it a few weeks back, but didn't make much more progress b/c of traveling, etc. Well, tonight I cut out more pieces from the vintage napkins we used at our wedding. Here's a pic of some of the squares. I'm excited to start getting this further along.
