It's 5 weeks before baby's due. I've got almost everything I need before labor day. I've even packed my hospital bag - filled with mommy, daddy and, of course, baby's things :)
Mom told me it's essential to pack along a kain batik. So I packed one that Mer's late grandmother gave me during my first visit to Kelantan.
There aren't many occasions where I wear kain batik so this will be my first time wearing it. If Mer's granny was around, I'm sure she would be very happy to see me in it.
I've also packed along these adorable looking booties!
Believe it or not, they were knitted by my mom! She did that along with a few other pairs, a snowcap (as I like to call it) and a cute looking top. She's really into DIY. Besides knitting, she will also sew baby's bedsheet (cribsheet?). That's not done yet coz we just received baby's matress today.
It was made by my granduncle out of kekabu. I was told that's it's a lot cooler and comfortable for babies. It is way cheaper too. Latex matress cost about RM300-400. I got this, along with the baby bolster and pillow, for about RM100 only. Pretty cool, eh?
So looks like everything is set. Although there's about a month to go and I gradually get heavier and bigger, I still go out for assignments. Can't wait to go on maternity leave!
