And so it begins: The Nesting.

Nesting: Around the fifth month of pregnancy, the "nesting" instinct can set in. This is an uncontrollable urge to clean one's house brought on by a desire to prepare a nest for the new baby, to tie up loose ends of old projects and to organize your world.

I am a natural organizer, tidier and planner - some may even suggest a little anal retention, or OCD may be at play. Whatever, I like my lists, boxes, calenders, and charts. That is just how I roll.

And today it was in full effect:

  1. Bought a car seat from Babies r Us - for $100 off - sweet deal
  2. Picked up a rocking chair from Craigslist posting - $50 and 30 minutes well spent
  3. FINALLY decided on what new sofa we were going to order - and it was $200 off 
  4. Hit up Ikea for some organizing supplies - all my travel memories are now in their own lovely memory boxes
  5. And ended the day with a inventory and organizational bonanza in the Nursery - all of Peanut things are sorted (for now, till more is accumulated)

All and all, a nice, little sunny, snowy Sunday in the 'burbs.

22wks and feeling fine :)
