Today is exactly one month from my due date.
How crazy is that?
Part of me is ready for this little man to make his way into the world,
and then part of me needs more time. That part of me is the one that wants
my house to be in order…which includes the nursery. My fabulous husband
has been putting up wainscoting and painting but with traveling for work, we aren’t
as far along as we’d have liked. But it’ll get done.
As everyone has told me, as long as baby has a place to sleep (which he does, bassinet in our room), car seat, diapers and some clothes, he’ll be good to go.
I have all of his stuff sitting in the hallway – clothes (i have only washed the non-gender specific clothes as I have a weird fear of “WHAT IF IT’S A GIRL?), stuffed animals, diapers, hamper, cool tummy time surfboard mat. There’s a boxed PacknPlay in my living room, a stroller in my front room (where the kitty’s live) and a high chair box behind my couch.
I feel the need to nest. I want everything in its place. But I don’t have the time to do it….nor, quite frankly, the energy. Whew!
Wish us luck. It’s getting closer. 🙂
