DIY BABY - Part 7

.

I made these today. Squishy, jingly cubes x 5...I'm hoping the tot will like?
I used wool felt and scraps of patterned fabric {the print is layered up with felt to make the thickness even}. I did them really quickly in my shed, as I tend not to stray too far from the sofa these days...so admittedly they could have been a bit neater. Anyways, from a distance they look ok, I don't think tot is going to care less.



I had to use something to put the bells inside and I thought of kinder egg yolks. They worked a treat, the only trouble is that I'm now left with lots of chocolate and some plastic toys to assemble. Oh woe...


Some good news to those who read my last post, the babe has heard my threats of the naughty step, and has flipped 180 into the correct position, it was only breech for about 2 days thank goodness {well, actually, thanks to my lovely midwife for suggesting lots of funny stuff, that actually worked!} . Me hopes it will stay that way until eviction day.
Other than that, all is well...its just a waiting game now, so trying to make the most of our last quiet days.

    So lovely to share the steps in your journey to Mummyhood. The little squishy cubes are just lovely. Keep your feet up and enjoy the view of the Bump before he or she arrives. xxxxxxx

    Very sweet blocks - the kinder egg idea is kinda genius!

    My babe was also breech and born via csection (oh well) with a perfectly flat head, proving he had been parked upright since day 1.

    And babies do sleep you know! I got loads of craft time in that first year. They love the hum of the sewing machine.

    Relax and sleep before your baby comes.
    Your little person is very lucky to have those blocks made with such love. And glad they decided to go head first. My mum is a midwife and told me a story before I delivered that she had a young woman many years ago arrive in labour with a bandwidth on her bellybutton. My mum queried why she had the bandaid (or plaster) on her bellybutton. She replied that she did not want the baby to try coming out via her belly button. This was about 30 years ago but still, something to giggle at as you prepare.
