this weekend was a whole lot of nesting and not a lotta resting. but, it sure was fun! we did manage to sneak in a movie date and some olympics watching when we weren’t busy in baby girl’s room. all in all, no complaints here! ready to tackle a new week AND we have promised ourselves that we are going to plan a whole lotta nothing for next weekend, peppered with a few strategic interactions and amusements.
i kicked off the weekend by taking that dreaded, icky glucose junk. yuck. that stuff burns! who knew that sugar could taste so horrible? + welcoming the weekend [and getting rid of the glucose taste in my mouth] with a dirty pizza night + bagel deliciousness + getting ready to watch some olympics + playing with rach & nate’s puppy, banjo. look at that sweet face!
and now…i bring you…
the nursery nest-fest.
the crib in bits and pieces + a pile of baby-ness waiting to be organized and arranged + books and decor for the bookshelves + pillows for the rocking chair + arranging the prints, pre-framing + my sweet hubby assembling the dresser [he's a keeper] + the focal wall post polka-dotting + more assembly + a real, live crib! just waiting for a baby… + a corner shot of the crib, the wall, the dresser, and the augusta flowers and foliage print.
hi baby girl. three. more. months. i cannot believe it. you are going to be here so soon! we are in the homestretch, little one. and speaking of stretch…you are definitely growing and stretching more these days [and so is my tummy skin]. i can feel your movements more and more. sometimes you give me a surprise karate kick or somersault that makes me want to giggle. it is so strange and wonderful to feel you moving around in there. i’m sure you are just anxious to come out and meet everyone.
you must be sensing our increasing excitement. the decorating has begun. paint is on the wall. drapes are up. your crib arrives this week. your dresser too. we even have some tiny outfits that are ready to be placed in the drawers. things are coming together. and we are thrilled. your papa and i are having a blast putting all of the bits and pieces in place. and i am enjoying all the planning and list making that i get to do. we are collecting books and prints and pillows and knickknacks. you are our new favorite thing to shop for. even when we were out shopping on my birthday, i found myself wandering into a baby clothing store to pick up tiny sweaters and socks for you. AND, we still have baby showers to come! the planning for those has started and i am feeling so overwhelmed by the outpouring of blessings, prayers, and encouragement. you have so many people who want to be a part of welcoming you to the world. know that you are loved by many, little girl.
what a great time. thank you for all of the memories and meaning and love that you have brought to our lives already. soli Deo gloria.
