Organizing the smallest of things

Happy June everyone!

As we skip into July any day now, I am getting closer to my due date. I’m trying to give myself a list of tasks to ensure I get everything done in a reasonable time frame. We all know how that works, but hey, here’s to the effort.

I see myself at step 3 in this process: Organize the baby clothes! Step one was to get the little things, like binkies, bottles, wipes, bibs, etc. I also needed to get some things for myself, like maternity clothes. Step two was to put together a registry. I know I’m going to have to organize baby clothes all over again after my showers, but I couldn’t handle another day of baby clothes in bags. I’ve been fortunate to receive an abundance of hand-me-downs from baby boys before mine, and have been working on organizing those as well.

I find the large plastic totes comes in handy nicely! I packed one up with some clothes and all the small baby necessities. I got a couple of small ones and decided to put more clothes in those. So far, I’ve organized clothes by size. My little one – NXD, will arrive in early October (give or take a few days, weeks?). So anything ‘newborn’ or ‘0-3 months’ are stored in the front, while ‘3-6 months’ and very warm clothes being second, since this timeline will put us past the New Year when the weather will be more harsh.

I’m having a lot of fun putting things together so far. The baby articles help me understand what a new baby will need and I’m thinking outside the box about care my little one will need. I want to be sure he comes into the world and my hubby and I are completely prepared for him. I also want to be sure he picks up good habits (which is probably the biggest deal to us). I want him to know that organizing isn’t just beneficial, but can also be fun. Some times I overwhelm myself with a whole list of chores, so lately I’ve been breaking them down and trying to be sure I take things one day at a time. After all, Rome was built in one day, and neither was the Ark.
