baby classes

We had our second baby class tonight. One of the other couples had their baby on Sat - she was due two days AFTER me! That scared J a little, I'll admit that it scared me too. But, from all reports the baby is healthy, but small, and they went home on Mon - so I guess that's reassuring.

In other baby-relatedness (like that word? I just made it up.), the nursery is not ready. It is painted, and J installed an overhead light and that is where everything came to a screeching halt. There is still a random dresser in the room. I have been completely unmotivated to empty the dresser out (it has craft supplies in it, most of which are trashable) and get it out of the room. J set up the changing table that his parents bought for us, and I threw all of the other wonderful baby things into the closet. I literally chucked all of the outfits, blankets, diapers, etc. that we received at our Muskegon shower into the closet, it is a mess. I thought I had plenty of time, now I'm rethinking that scenario.

Pictures to follow, and perhaps J will finally take a belly picture for all of you :)

I promise that your baby will not be mad at you if his/her nursery is not 100% finished when he/she comes out:)

Looking forward to seeing you this weekend!

Don't worry - once you start "nesting" you'll have it all done in about an hour :) I felt like I was on espresso coffe with a shot of red bull a few times, hence the pic of me mowing the lawn the week Justin was born!

The nesting instinct can be crazy... for me it kicked in right after the baby shower (36 wks). I remember not being able to sleep, so at 2 am, I started washing baby outfits and organizing the room. Here here for the belly shot!

YAY for a belly picture. I have been waiting :)

Also, don't worry about the room. My baby's room isn't done either. It is still a guest room. I am hoping in the next 6 weeks the basement will be finished so we can claim the room.

What? You're supposed to have the room ready before you bring the baby home??? Poor Austin will be 7 months old and he still doesn't have a room. ;)
