just call me mama bird.

There is a major case of nesting going on over here. I've been feeling anxious about the state of the apartment with Si's due date just around the corner (cuz you know, the baby will care whether or not the curtains are hung or not.) I keep telling Chris that the boxes and piles of random stuff are making me twitchy. Thankfully, we got tons done this weekend and I feel like I can breathe again.

My major concerns were making sure we had the car seat, buying a comfy futon for the guest room/studio and getting a mattress in the crib. Now that those are done, I've been working this week on personalizing the place and making it feel more and more like "home". 



Got my ceiling medallions hung, dining nook artwork up, and working on the gallery wall. All of the baby's clothes are washed and put away and nursery progress is coming along. 

Don't be fooled-- there is still a room full of piles and there's a cardboard boat (for the base's Fourth of July cardboard boat competition....) taking up most of the guest room. 

But we're getting there.

  7. Congrats on what you've accomplished! Hubby and I are both freaking out about different things in terms of getting ready for the baby. I want organization and he wants all the items under the sun for taking care of baby! its feeling crazy! When is the best time to wash baby clothes? Can you wash them too early?

    1. Hey Miranda! I don't see why you shouldn't wash the baby clothes at any time. I wash them to get rid of any manufacturer's chemicals and all the germs from people feeling the sweet baby clothes in the store. :) I'd only say wait so you don't have to keep doing a separate load every time you get some new clothes!

    I'll pay you with kisses from my puppies ;-)

  10. I totally understand that twitchy feeling.. I still feel like I'm nesting sometimes and my baby is two! Maybe I'm just a little OCD instead? Ha, anyways, way to get it done!
