Baby Washing Line

I can honestly say, I've never enjoyed doing the washing as much as I have today.


I know I'll be over it very quickly, especially considering we're going to be using cloth nappies, but today, I thought I would melt over each tiny little outfit.



To think, very soon, there is going to be a little person wearing these. Not TOO soon though, I got a bit grumpy when I was out and about yesterday and a number of people felt they had to tell me that I would have the baby any day now. I told them "No! I have another 6 and a half weeks, and I've spoken to her and asked her not to come too early."






The mean washing machine did eat one of the super cute socks, so there is already a sock feeling very lonely.

In a week or so I get to do it all again when the Japanese baby clothes arrive.

Such adorable baby things - yes enjoy it before you're way too tired and thinking "oh no, washing AGAIN?" It sure will help to be washing such cute things!

and I thought those were the Japanese baby clothes!! sorry to hear about the one sock :( maybe you can use the one left to hold baby's bottle in or make it into a little bag...

So cute all hanging in a row! I think you might need to whip up a little sockbag that goes in the wash to stop the pesky washing machine from eating them.

What sweet little outfits! She is going to be the best fressed little girl - enjoy!

Karin said...

I've taken photos like that - boy clothes though. :-)

And you know, I always enjoyed doing this kind of laundry, especially the nappy part. Something about hanging out all those gorgeous little things. Sigh....

One word says it all. Awww... :)

Love the photo's of all the colourful clothes, it truly is a lovely time to be hanging them out in anticipation of your new arrival. I also understand the notion of people telling you your baby is coming early. I had that alot with my second pregnancy because I was due second week of January everyone wanted her born either on Xmas or New Years, god knows why and I kept thinking, "Why do they want this baby to come early?" Instead she came two days late...perfect...So enjoy your time and ignore the commenters!! Lil x

Cute as Buttons said...

Ahh. I really could do that all over again. Such dear little things. I still haven't totally given up on the idea of number 4.

BumbleVee said...

that little sock might just be hiding inside some other cute little thing??

flossy-p said...

ooo loook at them all, how CUUUUUTE!!!!!

Imagine how much cuter they'll look with wriggly little arms and chubby little legs in them :)

Bec said...

Oh wow, you really are going to have the most gorgeously stylish little baby!!! I must admit, I did the cloth nappy thing (in fact, learning how to make fitted cloth nappies was the reason I bought my first ever sewing machine!!), and I always enjoyed the washing. Weird huh!!

I have just found your blog... guessing your having a girl?? all that pink..so cute !
I have a heap of washing bags...I wash all of my daughters clothes in them..they don't pull out of shape and they seem to pill less and stay new looking, longer.

Jenny said...

I am having a big blog catch up and what a lovely way to start with a washing line like this-she is going to be one cool baby!

WOW!

Kirra said...

Mel, your fotos are amazing .. I love them! I always knew you were a talented woman but ..geez.. I just keep realising it more & more.
Sending good things your way and hoping nothing is getting thrown across the room tonight. Your pucker is someone else's perfection. xx
