27 Weeks

I went into nesting overdrive this week.  Throughout this pregnancy, I've been telling
myself that we wouldn't worry about decorating the nursery until much later down the
road.  The baby will be with Shawn and I for quite a while and so I didn't see any point
in spending all of the time, money, and energy in decorating now.  We would wait until
later before fully committing to switching the girls and all of their belongings around.
And then I woke up in a cold sweat on Sunday night: what was I thinking?!!  I'm not that
kind of person!!  I'm not relaxed and go with the flow when it comes to anything involving
life changing events!!  We've got to get ready for this baby: NOW!
And so I spent the rest of the week rearranging furniture, cleaning out closets,
Pinteresting away (I sincerely apologize to all of you who follow me on Pinterest for
clogging up your feeds this week with baby decor), and ordering new bedding and art
work.  We have decided, after much discussion and debate, that the two little kids will share
a room and Isabelle will keep her own room.  We originally thought of putting the two
girls together but, with their 6 year age difference, realized this would be a drama filled
reality in the near future.  Instead, we will de-feminize Brees' room quite a bit and make it
a gender neutral nursery space with a circus theme.  We will keep the wall color as it is
now: pale yellow.  I've ordered bedding for little man's crib and new curtains.  I've found
art work to put up on the currently butterfly and flowery themed walls and I am so excited
to start putting this vision into action.  And with all of these decisions made and
packages arriving on the doorstep, I find myself getting more and more excited.
I have felt really great this week, with the exception of some round ligament pain.  I find
my appetite decreasing as my belly size increases.  Thanks to our luscious backyard garden,
I am filling up on cucumbers and squash to my heart's content.  It was a good week, a busy
one.  Here's to nesting and all of the insanity that comes along with it!
