I'm Nesting!

We've all heard that mothers-to-be go through a "nesting" phase when they want to clean, organize, make things - generally prepare for the baby.  Well, I believe I'm there.  I'm going to admit something here that might be hard for some of you to believe (and not so hard for others), but I can tend to be somewhat of a procrastinator - especially on the weekends.  Chores, blah.  Laundry, blah.  Yard work, double blah.  

Well, in two days time I have gotten more done than I ever thought possible.  I've cooked some treats, cleaned the entire downstairs, done the laundry (from start to finish!), scrapbooked five pages for the baby's book, AND (drum roll, please)...have hand sewn two burp cloths.  I completely expect some of you to doubt the truth behind this claim, so I have proof.  Check out the picture of the burp cloths to the right.  Cute, right?!  I might even try a matching bib.  

I've got a whole list of other baby crafts and goodies I'd like to tackle.  With the weather as hot as it's been I need lots of indoor projects to keep me occupied.  A side note - it was 100 degrees today in Greensboro.  Ugh.  Some of the crafts on my list include custom-shape cut out bath time sponges, mini lamp shade night light, thank you cards, felt children's book, decorated wooden letters (baby's name) for wall of nursery.... to name a few.  I'll post photos as I make my way through the list. 

Let's just hope this nesting phase continues long enough to get some of this stuff done!

You are so right on the procratinator part. You always finish everything on time and exactly when you start it! (Note the sarcasm)

I think it is wonderful that you are becoming crafty and artsy for your baby. That is something that you will carry with you for the rest of your life. I am dying to hear if you have picked a name. Love to you and Eric!

Teresa, you're looking adorable! :) Great job on the craftiness, that is something that I haven't really picked up this pregnancy. I love the burp clothes!

I hear ya girl! I'm totally nesting too. It's crazy that it has hit me so early, but my house appreciates it :)
