Maternity Mondays: Week 27

Monday, January 9, 2012

It's official... I am in the crazy "nesting" mode. Anyone but my husband would have killed me this weekend. On Friday night I packed for Maui and then Saturday I got really crazy and cleaned out the ENTIRE guest room/office. Then on Sunday morning M painted all the baseboards/picture rails in the office since we never completed that when we moved in 5 years ago. Here is what the room liked after...

After we painted we went to pick up the baby furniture that came in this weekend. We were quite the sight driving down the road at about 35 mph. M's truck was loaded sky high and I was packed full in the SUV behind him. I've never felt like I fit in more in Riverside than I did then with our precarious load...

And then the craziness ensued with my brother's help of lifting/unpacking furniture that weighs more than I do (and that's saying a lot now-a-days!). M put together the entire crib, which was no easy feat, and unpacked the dresser, glider, and nightstand. I helped by neatly folding all of Blair's clothes and adding details like throw blankets and pillows. :) Here is the crazy nester herself...

I did manage to take this photo in the middle of our moving furniture

This is the first week where I thought to myself, I'm starting to get so big that it's not cute anymore. Um and I have 13 more weeks to go?! Are you joking me?

-the pain that's starting to occur more frequently in my lower back. Boo. 
- the way that some of my bikini's and sundresses fit. I had a mini fashion show for M while packing for Maui and he had to kindly tell me some things just weren't covering cutting it.

-getting my hair done
-getting another pre-natal massage (half off!)
-still rockin' an innie!
-so looking forward to Maui this Saturday!!!!
I can't wait to show you some of the progress we made on the nursery but I'm funny about things being done before I reveal. I'll have to post some snippets this week but I am far from being finished. Here is my "to-do" and "to purchase" list...and hopefully some of these things are purchased and received at my upcoming showers! A girl can dream, right?

to purchase
large rug
changing pad covers

to do
install mobile
install chandelier
install curtains
hang Blair's name (ordered from Etsy)
learn how to take care of a baby :)

Sigh. Lots to do but SO much to look forward to! I have another doctor's appointment tomorrow to see how Blair is doing. It's been a productive and crazy weekend to say the least. On Sunday we were working on her room from 8am to 9pm. I'm one insane mama!
