Bedside Basket...

With the birth of our third baby only 99 days away (!), I have been planning crazily! One of the things that I would like to accomplish soon is the assembly of a basket full of little goodies our older children can enjoy while I am taking care of the new baby. Hopefully I can get this basket put together quickly (we already have many of these items tucked away) so that they can be used in the event our little one come sooner than August. Ideally, I would like to use it during my forty days at home, but it will certainly come in handy if I need to go on bedrest. In addition to these little things, I am hoping to use our screened-in porch for a lot of playing and I am hoping to have a baby pool set up in the backyard as well. If you have any other ideas, I'd love them!

Great ideas, Matushka! I hadn't thought of this, but now that I'll have two older ones to deal with during the postpartum period, I may as well get some plans in action :)

This is such a great idea. I will be sure to remember this is God blesses us with another child in the future.
