Big Step

I took a big step today. Well, it was a big step for me, anyway.

I washed some of the baby stuff.

Sheets, a mattress pad, and lots of clothes.

I had to take the tags off first.


Let me repeat that, because it seems so small written up there on the screen.


I took the tags off baby clothes, and I washed them.

I've avoided that very thing this entire pregnancy, because it feels like tempting fate.

With less than six weeks to go, I figure the fate I'm tempting would be for her to come early, and me to have no washed sheets for her to sleep on.

Deep breath.

  1. Oh Julie! That is a huge step! It stinks the amount of excitement and innocence IF steals from us. Can't wait to meet Miss Cate!

  2. Yay!! And I like your view on tempting fate...yes, leaving clothes/bedding unwashed may just be tempting her to come early and find you unprepared! With only 6 weeks left I'd say it's a good time to get ready :).

  4. Julie ~ When I read your post today it took me back to nearly 5 years ago with a certain little girl....I remember the day that I decided okay God I trust you walked straight in the house and took all of the tags off of Faiths things! I just held my breath and ripped them off! Then I was like oh crap what did I do?? From that moment on I decided that I was just going to trust that in a few weeks I would have my baby...and you know the rest of the story. That is a HUGE step!
