Even with my lack of energy and feeling the weight of my belly, nesting has kicked in! There are a few boxes that still need to be unpacked, but decorating the boys’ room became my priority. I didn’t have the opportunity to get ready for Levi’s arrival, so this time around I want to be prepared.
The last week was spent taping off patterns, Matt painting both rooms, Levi “helping” Daddy, and adding decor. Even our cat Dubya got into the fun. The rooms are missing a few accessories but that will come with time. Overall I’m thrilled with Baby’s nursery and Levi’s toddler room.
We’ve also washed carseat covers, set up the pack n play in our bedroom, and packed a bag for the hospital. I still need to pull out the pump to make sure it is in working order and clean the parts, as well as pull out the baby bottles and have a few of them washed and ready (just in case nursing doesn’t go as planned). Overall, I’m feeling ready. Every time I do basic housework or pay bills, I think “I’m glad I’ve got this done because you never know when I’ll suddenly be distracted by the newest member of our family.” I’ll be full term on Saturday and then the baby can come at any time! Mama and Daddy are both nervous and excited… the wait is on!!
