"Around the fifth month of pregnancy, the 'nesting' instinct can set in. This is an uncontrollable urge to clean one's house brought on by a desire to prepare a nest for the new baby, to tie up loose ends of old projects and to organize your world."
Pregnancy Weekly

Hmmmm....So it would seem that this what I have been up to lately! The urge is overwhelming and energizing.

I have to say, though, that I LOVE NESTING! I love folding and putting away all her fresh clean little pink outfits. I love brainstorming and beginning her scrapbooking albums and announcement cards. I love having a closet with everything neatly stacked and organized by color. I love waking up to a house that doesn't appear messy, even when you look inside the closets (not all of them yet!) I love being motivated to get things checked off my list that have been haunting me for months (or even YEARS!)

The man who puts together all the big stuff, and keeps the garbage/recycling empty as I purge, sort, CLEAN! And, he doesn't question my crazy nesting behaviours...

YAY! We FINALLY have a carseat and we can officially bring baby home when she's born!

Everything labeled and in its place. Empty prepped scrapbooks ready for pregnancy photo shoots and Evalie's first albums!

Daddy's diaper bag is all ready to go. Meanwhile, Mommy needs to save her money for the Coach baby bag that she really wants...oh, to have such expensive taste!

Prepping my mind for early parenthood. And, leaving pacifiers/baby toys around the house to train Jolie not to eat them!

I'm with Joanne, when you're done nesting at your house could you come to mine? Three pregnancies and no nesting ever, and none since either... It all looks great and I am so excited for you guys.

Nesting indeed! Must say, I am extremely envious of the time to nest - I feel like I never got the chance! Enjoy it all while you can!
