Our little dragon’s are expected any day ✊ This morning we had our last sonar and then meet with the birth doctor, I have started to “open” and we are now 4cm ready… That means tomorrow or this weekend hopefully 🙌 My birth fear is now over and I am so ready to see them 💕
When Þóra Lóa was newborn we had a old Moses basket for her that she slept in the first months. I really loved it and it was so practical to move around our apartment, now we have a new one for the boys that is much stronger and with a rocking stand. I recommend the Moses basket 100% instead of the classic bassinet because the basket can be taken out and put on the couch or table if needed.

Our little bathroom was in great need of a “face lift” so we decided to have it done before the end of January. Our main focus was good practical storage and space for a washing machine, having newborn babies I did not want to be running to the washing room in the basement all the time.
I forgot to take before pictures so you can see the transformation but it was old and just not practical at all. What we have done is to buy new interior as lights, mirror, cabinets, shower/bath pipes, stone top and sink. I am really happy with the outcome and new storage spaces we got in this small bathroom.
We picked dark wood interior and white stone top, the top is extra wide for a bathroom so we could fit the washing machine under and also to have as a changing table on top. The sink and the top is all in stone and specially made after our measurements, we wanted all in one piece blending together. We picked a sink that is big enough so we can give our little boys a bath in it the first months.

We are more than ready now – 36weeks in is really good with twins and in only one week they are fully ready to meet the world. Baby A was 2475g (10merkur) & Baby B was 2890g (12merkur) at our 35week sonar, so they are big and healthy. Baby B is in position in the pelvis and our birth doctor think that they will come within a week, so our hospital bag needs to be packed and ready.
Here is my check list on what to bring to the hospital.

I am in nesting mood and finishing our home on step at the time before the twins arrival. We always wanted a big cosy couch to crawl up in and I know maybe white is not the most practical choose when expecting twin boys but IKEA sells covers for the couch and it is washable so we took a chance on having a white couch ;)
