I like for things/stuff/shaz to have a designated spot. If the “stuff” can’t find an official, long term home than it doesn’t belong in my house! I have come to terms with the additional baby “stuff.” We probably have less than other people do and no, our child isn’t being deprived, we just don’t need every baby swing/seat option that is out there. I do better with less stuff and others do better with more stuff!
I made sure that we would have room to grow in anticipation of the baby “stuff.” In addition to the spaces I already made, I have to do some spring cleaning. I plan on going through my hall closet because it has been a year since we moved in and it has gotten a tad cluttered for me and not only that but it’s disorganized! I went through clothing since I had to switch to the summer wardrobe already. For those of you who don’t know, Austin has two seasons, comfortable and ridiculous, super, uncomfortable hot.
I LOVE to purge. Cleaning and getting rid of things cleanses my soul. Here are some pictures of how I made room for baby Andy. I am going to have a hard time saving all the baby “stuff” for the next baby. I can’t get rid of it but once Andy isn’t in the gigantic baby swing, you betcha it will be taken apart faster than fast! I will say this- I LOVE the swing! As long as Andy has a full belly and clean diaper, it’s guaranteed he will take a snooze! In fact he is snoozing right now
Remind yourself what Andy’s room looks like- look here. There is also floor space to sprawl out on besides the rug. Kids need room to grow! Since we have two season, Andy will be able to spend about 2/3 to 3/4 of his playing time outside
