Nesting....What, am I a bird?!

Isn't that such a weird word...nesting? But I guess it's true. I finally feel the need to get some things ready for baby's arrival ~ whether I feel like it or not. (And I don't) At the very least I decided I needed to wash some clothes and blankets so baby would have something to wear on the big day.

I haven't bought a thing for this baby. I'm just too sick most days to even think about shopping. Thankfully I have a sweet mom who loves to buy baby things. She blessed us with all these wonderful clothes, blankets, washcloths, etc. So whether we have a boy or girl, this baby will be well-dressed from day one.

What else have I done for the nesting instinct? I had Tim bring the rocking chair to our room about a month ago. And I have been thinking for about two weeks now that we should put the changing table together. Every day ends with the same thought, "Maybe tomorrow."

As each day passes and we get closer to having this baby, I cut the nesting to-do list down. I figure...what does a newborn really need? Clothes. Diapers. Food (that's me). A place to sleep. Ok ~ we still need to do something about that last one. I wonder if the baby furniture fairy is planning to stop by my house and get that taken care of for me?!
