The last few days I have been feverishly running around, trying to cross things off my To Do list, and it's not easy to do when you are feeling huge and uncomfortable.
I spent the first 4 months of being pregnant, trying not to think about how the banana I just ate was making me feel nauseous, or how I wish I could just take a nap..
Months 5-7 were great, I had lots of energy, I loved my baby bump, I could still play on the floor with Gray, but I didn't feel the anxious 'must do everything' vibe, because there was still lots of TIME?!
Once the 8th month hit,I started making the list, the dreaded things 'I must have done by the time the baby comes' list. Well, now that it's down to the last few weeks, I really wish I would've done some of these things a bit sooner. You would think I would learn the second time around!
Funny how all of this is done for a baby that is sitting and waiting patiently in my belly, who probably only cares that he is loved, fed, warm and changed. My efforts at making sure all his clothes are folded and in place and the floor behind the fridge is clean, probably seems like nothing to him.
All this nesting will be worth it though in the end...to finally meet Baby Pea Pod (who will probably be nameless for the first few hours, since Mike and I can't seem to find the perfect name!). So, I guess what's left is to just enjoy the TIME, the time spent together as a couple, as parents of a fantastic son, as mom and son and as dad and son....anticipating the arrival of our new baby boy.
My little book worm!
Oh, and for those of you who followed my Closet Makeover Challenge, the third closet is finished...
Remember the before:
*Blog posts may be far and few between for the next month or so...as we await and adjust to the changes to come. I won't completely leave you, I will still be here and I will for sure let you know when our Baby Pea Pod arrives...plus I still have to reveal the new nursery (which is still a work in progress!)
