The List

I think I've written before on nesting...  Sometimes I feel as though I've been nesting this entire pregnancy.  And, really, it was the same with Whit.  Both times I've spent a good portion of the beginning and middle part of my pregnancy organizing everything so that I won't feel guilty during my leave.

This time I've also been stocking the deep freezer and doing other sometimes random things.  Baking and sewing projects have been a focus (maybe because this is a girl?) and I have just one or two things left on the list before I will feel absolutely ready for baby.  I do have some more sewing projects I want to finish, but I figure I'll have some time coming up to work on them since I thankfully do not have to return to work ASAP.

I'm just now getting away from organizing and into cleaning, so I know baby won't be here today, but it's getting closer.  I resorted to scrubbing the walls about 4 days before I went into labor with Whit so I'm expecting that to be a sure sign of things to come!
