I have hit that stage in pregnancy where I am ready to get the house ready for out little one. It didn’t really hit until we got back from all of our holiday traveling and we started birth classes. In my opinion, we were starting to push it because we had done not much of anything to get the baby’s room ready. So now it has begun. Here are just a few of the things we started to get ready…..
Moving furniture from the room. The baby’s room used to be my office. Way back when we first moved into the house, Sean built this awesome table for me for the space. In the summer of 2014, we started the process of finishing our basement, when my office moved down there. Still though, all of the furniture and supplies had not been moved because the rest of the basement wasn’t finished. Now they have all been moved and of course, they are probably extremely dusty as the basement project continues.
Painting. Sean decided that he was going to paint the whole room. The only bad part was he didn’t decide to start working on this until after we came back from the holidays. It was a crazy fast project but I can now say it is complete, with only a few minor disagreements over colors.
Moving in. You can ask Sean, I was getting super antsy to move into the room. We had received some stuff at the shower at home and I was ready to start putting it where I wanted it in the room. He had to get the room done though. I’m not even sure the paint was dry when I started putting things in the closet but I felt a lot better.
Building the crib. Everyone told me to run away when this happened but, honestly, it wasn’t that bad. I think it took maybe a half hour for my dad and Sean to put it together. Now that it is done, I already feel better and have laid off of him a lot. I feel like I could have the baby now even though we still don’t have things that we probably should have.
Sewing. I have been in sewing overload. It isn’t even all for out little one but it has been fun and I accomplished more in the short time after Christmas till now than I thought I would. All of the projects turned out great. More to come on those soon.
Freezer meals. It was a little ambitious but I am hoping that we will be thankful to have them once the baby arrives. I ended up making 20 meals ranging from soup to wings to chicken to sausage. I am hoping that this will last us a couple of weeks with us cooking on the other nights.
I’m sure over the next 8 weeks (yes, that is all that is left), I will continue to try to get the house ready but first the basement project has to get finished so we can finally clean our house and feel like it’s really time for the baby. Only about a week left of that work and it should be done. (And that means the rest of the Christmas decorations can come down. YAY!)
Look for the big nursery reveal in the next couple of weeks. We still have a few more touches to put in the room but it is all coming together.
