Nesting Into The New Year

Wow, I don’t know if it was the scare last week or just maternal nesting instincts, but this girl has been on a roll the last week!  I am cleaning (stuff that doesn’t already need cleaned daily due to having a toddler), organizing, de-cluttering, etc. like it is nobody’s business!  Nothing is safe!IMG_6063

The baby girl’s room is almost cleared of all miscellaneous “stuff” that has been collecting in there for months.  This was a bigger deal than what it sounds.  (Suddenly our home is feeling a bit smaller)  The crib is in place, the mattress is out of its plastic and the sheets are washed and put on.

This awesome baby bjorn chair is all washed and set up:

This chair was a life-saver with Ashton!

The Boppy Newborn Lounger is washed and ready to go:

I had wished I got this earlier with Ashton... I foresee it getting a lot of use.

The portable crib that she’ll sleep in next to our bed is ready to go too!

I am feeling really good about all of the organizing I have gotten done in a week, that I am feeling confident we will get it all done in the next couple weeks.  Most of the major things are finished, now I can concentrate on more of the little things and taking it easy.

Things I want to do in the next week or so:

  • Get pump and nursing accessories ready
  • Pack hospital bag
  • Move our rocker from Ashton’s room into the baby’s room
  • Get the little drawer set from target set up
  • Curtains
  • Go through Ashton’s newborn (that he didn’t get to wear since he was too big) stuff and get it washed

 

 

 

I am hoping all of this momentum rolls over into the New Year 🙂  I’ve got our pork and sauerkraut in the slow cooker for New Year’s Day. Yum!

The house will smell so good in the morning!

Now I’m off to sip my root beer and fall asleep before midnight… Party! 🙂

  1. Did Ashton try the good luck pork? I hadn’t bookmarked your URL before and now I am so excited to read (and catch up on past posts) in 2015! Great blog, btw! I am sending JCR3 the stroller pics that we took in the fall to get up online, we couldn’t locate them last night but I have them saved on my work computer. Also, congrats on getting the room ready! Later homie!

    • Ashton is still embracing his mostly-vegetarian diet, so he didn’t try it, haha! I’m glad you re-found the bog 🙂 Woohoo, I’m glad the pics were found… You guys are much better photographers than I am!
