First of all: Congratulations! Yay, we loooooove babies!
Second: Holy crap, are you ready?!
So many things to do and plan before the new baby arrives!
Below are just a few of the things we can help you
get organized and execute before your mini-me arrives!
You’re probably not going to have much time to sleep, let alone cook!
We can help you prepare and freeze your favorite healthy Freezer Meals that will require just heating and serving!
Making the photo appointment, getting the photos taken, creating the birth announcement, making the list of the recipients and stamping/addressing all of those envelopes is pretty time consuming, we can take care of all that for you!
Gift List & Thank You Cards!
A good system to keep track of who gave you what is important when sending out thank yous to all of those people who are helping your new baby’s transition into the world. Since most of your free time after the baby comes will be spent dozing off or tending to the other family members, let us keep track and get out all of those thank yous for you!
Taming the Paperwork!
Organizing a filing system for baby’s papers, records, and info along with each member of the family to keep it all straight can help out a lot when it’s time for check-ups, back to school, and field trips!
You’ll need a good system for those sonogram pics, that adorable tiny newborn hat from the hospital, all of those thank you cards, and the million other scrapbook items you’ll want to plug into a scrapbook whenever you finally start getting some sleep again.
Now you’re gonna need to make room for bottles, a drying rack, breast pump parts, formula, baby food and all those wee little baby supplies. We can help you pick out the best storage solutions that are out of site, but easily accessible.
We can help you pick out the best (and best looking!) diaper bag for your specific needs. We can help you set up an unload/load station by the door and create a check-list of on-the-go items so you never leave the house without the essentials to make your away-from-home time go as smoothly as possible.
It’s important that you choose quality furniture that will last, yet that is efficient for the way you will use it based on your habits and expected routine. We can help you choose lifestyle specific furniture that fits in with your existing decor.
Whether you’re going to use cloth or disposable, it’s important to plan ahead and have your diaper station and changing table all ready to go and stocked with supplies you’ll need for that sweet baby bottom!
We can help you create the best logging system that tracks eating habits ,sleep patterns, and poops to keep you on track with the little one and to know what to expect.
Baby Related Storage!
These little guys grow like weeds so it’s vital to have a storage system that can keep up. You’ll have tons of baby clothing, hand-me-downs, grow into clothes, and maternity clothes that will need some serious organizing and storage solutions so you can easily find, replace, and swap out as baby grows.
As soon as baby is mobile, watch out! We can help you install the best baby-proofing materials.
Sitter/DayCare Guide and Information!
The time will come when you get to take a much needed break from your little one, but let us help you make sure that Nanny or Ms. Sweet Nursery Lady has all that specific and detailed info about your kiddo to make their time go much more smoothly and happily.
Toy Storage and Swapping!
As baby grows and changes through the various developmental stages, so should the toys! To stay at the top of your babies developmental progress, it’s vital that baby has the right kinds of stimulation and interaction through play! We can help you store toys based on age relevance that will be an easy, breezy swap out when the time comes!

Little boys. It was all about ’em today as we peeked into some brothers’ closets. The first little guy was a big fan of cars, trucks and tractors!
We started by clearing the stuffed animals out that were not played with anymore. Having those two shelves open gave us lots of room to play with. The top one was designated for larger puzzles that he would need to have help getting out, while we made room for the wooden board puzzles on a lower shelf that he could access. Books were straightened and Christmas books were pulled out and stored together for the holidays. We then had space for some of the larger toys from his room on the shelves. We had to give some attention to the trucks on the floor that were driving mom nuts!
The trucks found a new garage space under the bed and train tracks in baskets made a more contained presence in the closet. We then took everything off of the top shelf.
And when we were done….
Of course his beautiful shelves, too!
Then it was on to closet number two. Big brother.
Everything came off that main shelf and we put bins and books back after we pulled Christmas books out! The search is still on for the perfect storage for this shelf that has so much potential and has not maximized it’s space. It’s a bit tricky to find something narrow enough for the shelf space and not permanent. The top clothes hanging rod is too high to be used now but when he gets taller it will be great!
Until then, we moved some of the stackable bins to this shelf along with some of his toys from his room.
So after we were done there was an entire top shelf open and that is always a great thing to see!! And last but not least the shelf in the corner all straightened up!
