Nesting Time

We are in ultimate nesting mode.  I knew as soon as Christmas was over and January started creeping up, this whole baby thing would start seeming really, really real.  Adam is actually more in nesting mode than even I am.  Since we got back last night, he's been non-stop:  moving guest room furniture to make room for the nursery, ripping up the carpets, working on the floors, trips to Lowe's... this baby's really coming!  We don't have the baby furniture yet but I suppose we could clear out a sock drawer if all else fails  (just kidding, we do have a pack n' play we plan on using as a bassinet for the first bit).  

It's actually really fun getting everything ready but I find myself having to take more breaks and do a little stretchy action every so often.  I guess that's just part of carrying a big ol' basketball under your shirt.  I suppose it's a pretty good excuse to sit back with a nice cold cup of water and watch a good lookin' man sweat it out.  Thank you Lord for my fine husband (with a headlamp on his head as he works.  He never takes it off.) 

Meanwhile, I must go back and continue cleaning.  The counters must be bleached, the ceiling must be dusted, all c.d.'s must be alphabetized....the baby is coming, the baby is coming!

Just wait for the overwhelming urge to wash every single item of clothing in your house....That one is a doozy! You are going to be a fabulously organized mother!

I agree with your mom...enjoy being a mommy to be!! You probably will not have time for any of those things once baby Jennings arrives. I do think you should add sleep to that list too!!

PS - you look amazing.

PPS - yay for nesting mode.. as long as were still allowed to come over. :) The floors look great. I cant wait to see everything else.

You should definitely go get a massage & get your nails done & hire a chef & maid & maybe even a personal driver! Too much? Maybe but youre pregnant so why not? I will do the last 3 for free if your looking.
