21 Weeks, and more baby goodies!

21 Weeks today!!!  I realised that I haven't gotten a picture in this blouse.  It's one of the first maternity pieces I bought for this pregnancy, and I love it!  Don't think I'll be able to wear it too much longer though.  Zachariah is just getting too big!  ;)

Tatiana was a terrible sleeper.  Seriously.  She didn't sleep for more than a couple of hours at a stretch for literally months.  The first time she slept for five hours straight we thought she had died.  I'm not kidding.  I think she was about 8 months old at the time.  When we started thinking about another baby, I began researching alternative sleeping methods for coliky babies, and discovered the Happy Hangup.  Baby hammocks have been used for centuries throughout the world to help soothe colicky babies, and babies with reflux (which was Tatiana's problem).  The way a hammock cradles a baby is reminiscent of the womb and the gentle rocking helps baby to fall asleep.  The elevation of baby's head also helps with any digestion issues.  The widespread recall of all drop-side cribs further cemented this purchase for us.  I was barely able to get my little ones in and out of the drop side crib without climbing on a ladder as it was, and often bruised myself trying.  How in the world could I possibly hope to get a baby out of a fixed side crib?
So, here is my beautiful Happy Hangup, imported from Australia.  I'm getting more excited by the moment for my little Zachariah to be here so I can put him in it!  :)
