    Packed for the Hospital

    The contents of my hospital tote. One of these bags is not like the others, I know. Just ignore it for the time being, it contains my toiletries and they are boring. My going home clothes are in the Ultraviolet PCSB and the kids' going home clothes are in the Iberian one.



    Nobody cares what I'll be wearing. Let's look at wee tiny baby stuff! Here's a peek inside their PCSB:



    If I freak out and decide we need even more clothes for them, there's room...even though all of this is already stuffed inside:



    I have no idea how big they will be, or how cold it will be outside, or if I want them dressed alike or differently, so I packed a variety of items: 2 blankets, 2 onesies, 2 hats, 2 pairs of socks, 2 matching long-sleeve shirts, 2 matching short-sleeve shirts, and 2 pairs of pants with little monkey feet. Oh my google, little monkey feet. They are just too cute.

    ETA: A better picture of the little monkey feet.

        Oh Janine, I love the simplicity! I took WAY more than I needed for me and for baby. I'm excited for you guys. I have been, and will continue to say prayers for a non complicated delivery and quick adjustment for you and Mr. Janine. :)
        I really, really like TB Bags!

          Saying prayers for a healthy and safe delivery for all of you! Those pictures are adorable - hope to see more pictures, with little ones in their clothing too!
          You are so organized - plus colour coding the TB bags! Brilliant move.

            Thank you, everyone! :)

            @dorayme, all I packed was those three bags and a pair of flip-flops in a huge tote bag (so that there's room to bring home things they give us at the hospital). We live just a mile from the hospital, so hubby can run home to get anything we need that I didn't pack.

            @Maria, I put comments on my registries like "one blue and one green for color-coding the kids" and several people called to ask about that. I read on a twins forum that if you can designate colors for each child, it's easy to tell them apart from afar and in photos. It seemed like a very sensible idea to me so I'm going to give it a try, but it confused some of the one-at-a-time parents I know.

                      I made it to the blog again! Wow! Let's celebrate with new family pictures taken on Mothers Day!





                      You can't see it in the photo, but the Iberian PCSB is under the stroller. It's filled with diapers and wipes and spare clothes and burp cloths. It makes a fantastic small diaper bag for quick trips, like a walk around the neighborhood.

                              Yea! We finally get to see pics. Man those boys are handsome! What a lovely family photo, and I LOVE your first Mother's Day picture. I can imagine that the PCSB would make a great short trip and light weight diaper bag, great choice! :)
                              I really, really like TB Bags!
