Only a few more weeks before Frederick gets here, and there’s still a lot to be done. I’ve been hoping that I’d get bitten by the nesting bug, but I can’t really justify waiting around much longer. So slowly but surely, I’ve been making my way through my to-do list. Though…remind me again why I thought the 3rd trimester would be a great time to get several DIY furniture projects even though I’ve never done anything like it before? I’m just that awesome, I guess. So intermixed with all the hypnobirthing, practicing surge breathing, and reading up on breastfeeding, I’m also learning about sandpaper grits, low-VOC paint, and sealants. There’s also decorating the nursery, installing the car seat, and finding somewhere to put all. those. books. I could keep going, but then my blog would just look like my to-do list.
All in all though, things are going very well. We have a healthy baby who is putting on the pounds (yeah, it’s definitely him…), and once he gets here, he won’t care if his DIY tree branch drapes are up or if we’ve finished staining the nightstand; he’ll just want to eat and be loved. And we can definitely do that. And let’s be honest, he’s the most important work in progress of all.
