The Laundry Job

This week I'll be entering 30 weeks, and I guess this is just the right time for me to start doing the laundry for the little tot. It's better to be prepared, right? Just in case some unexpected events occur, at least most of the baby's stuff is settled and ready.

I thought I've bought a lot of clothes for the baby's arrival but it soon turned out that it wasn't that many anyway, well according to me. But hubby thinks they are more than enough and can lasts her whole early months wearing it everyday. Ok fine.

The whole laundry process took two days to finish, from the smallest ones to the biggest stuff. I did two rounds of washing each day. So all in all, there were four rounds of washing for two days in a row. I was flat, seriously, seeing that I wasn't as fit as before. Mind you, I did the laundry with the help of washing machine but still, the job tires me as hell. I'm just glad I did the laundry earlier because I can't imagine doing the job at 8 months, I'm sure will surrender even before started. Hehehe.

The first round: I gathered all the whites (clothes, mittens, towels, etc) in order to separate them with the colored clothes and wash them first. At this point of time, I was still all giddy and excited with the tiny clothes. Hahaha.

The second round: I started off with the colored clothes and that includes pants, tights, dress, etc. The weather was freaking hot at that time and I can't bear the heat. So I wasn't in the mood at all for pictures.

The third round: The next day I woke up early in order to finish the heaps of clothes left to be washed. For this time, I washed all the big ones like blankets, wraps and napkins. Thank God none of the colored clothes were discoloured or else, I'll have a hell of a time doing a second wash and mourn after the mess.

The fourth round: For the last round (finally!), I washed off all the smallest items (mittens, booties, hankies, socks, bibs, etc). I was dead tired at this time and finally hubby lent a helping hand and he sorted out the items to be dried out. I just can't bear looking at all the tiny mini things already. Dizzy!

The weather was all dry and hot for these past few days. In a way, it helps the drying process faster. Haha! Now comes the part where the folding and storing took place. I was eager to count how many clothes does the baby own but in the end, I lost track and was too lazy to recount and just assume, her clothes are more than enough for her first three months.

Okayyyyyy, I personally think that's a lot. But I know I really should buy more because most of these are for 0-3/0-6 months. Babies grow so fast and I'm sure my baby is no exception too, thus I should stock up more on 6 months and above before she outgrows her current clothes. Oh wells, that can wait when she's out later I guess.

On the other hand, the storage box for my baby arrived the other day from Macy. It's actually a compensation gift from them because they messed up my order and the reproduction of it took FOREVER to be ready. And finally, both items arrived safely at my house. I can't be more than happy for this. Rezeki baby...

A white fabric storage box. I stashed all the baby's items in here first before it comes to full use. And I just need to put on the bears. They are my collection and they should be passed down to my kid.

The 70s inspired mirror and drawer set (with lots of with dramas before arrival) for my dining area. This set is hugeeeeeeeee in real life and we both love its vintage-y appeal.
