So what's been occupying my free days???
Well, a couple a small projects, finishing a book (The Host - has anyone else read it?), assembling baby equipment (swing, bassinet, etc.), hosting play dates as well as attending play dates, and lots and lots of organizing and cleaning. The instinct to nest is unbelievably powerful!
Yesterday, I hosted a rather large play group here at the house. I was actually a little giddy when everyone left knowing I would get to clean up and organize - I sound a little like "Monica" from "Friends," don't I? But it's true. I love to clean up an organize. My New Years resolution, which is much the same as last year's, is GASO - Get And Stay Organized. And we are off to a good start thanks to that whole nesting instinct.
By the way, it has also totally gotten to T Rex Dad, too. He is SO pregnant - emotional, teary, tired, back achy. I think it's because he is so in tune with me. Although, he does admit that if our childbearing needs were left to him we would be adopting so at least he does not feel jilted that he doesn't get to experience the wonder of carrying a child inside or pushing said child out. And, he, too, has the compulsive need to clean these days.
Unfortunately, T Rex Dad is rolling out a big work project this week. We spoke with our daughter about making sure she did not make her appearance this week so he could finish up. Thus, he has been working long and late hours to be ready in case anything happens soon.
Therefore, I enlisted the "other man of the house" to help set up the baby swing. All I can say is good thing it has a 30 lb weight limit and our little T Rex is only 28 lbs. This is what I found him doing earlier today...
I wonder if he remembers being in this swing. Probably not but he knew exactly how to work it. This was a life saver when T Rex was a baby - I used to get some of the best naps out of him while he was in this swing. Although, it always had to be set to the highest setting.
So there you have the latest happenings. I will try to keep posting regularly as well as let you all know when Little Girl makes her entrance into the world. I am still taking suggestions as to her blog name. We won't be sharing her real name on the blog. However, with school starting and a new baby arriving I am not certain how good my time management skills will be so I might not be posting as often. In the mean time, be well...
