The nesting instinct is strong in the Cleaver household these days.
Things are beginning to come together in bits and pieces. The nursery got painted this weekend, we’ve ordered new carpet to replace the mismatched (and smelly!) carpet in all the bedrooms, and have even purchased (or made!) a few things for the Wee Babe. Once the carpet is installed next week, we’ll be able to start setting up the nursery for reals, and not just on paper.
With about 9 weeks to go before my due date, it seems both like time is going by way too fast and not nearly fast enough. I’ve definitely hit the tired and uncomfy part of the third trimester, but there’s still so much to do! That said, one thing I’ve learned to appreciate about this pregnancy is that it’s forced me to just SLOW DOWN and rest when I need to, something I’ve never been terribly good at.
After all, my most important job these days is gestating, and I seem to be doing pretty well there.
