I've finally started nesting! This weekend was our prepare for baby weekend, and we've been sorting and washing baby clothes, shopping for homebirth supplies and baby gear. We're planning to clear out the guest room today, because it's the one bedroom that's on the lower floor, the same level that our birth tub will be on, and I imagine I'll want to labour in there. Up until now, it was filled with all of the things that we haven't unpacked from the move.
We still have a HUGE list of move-related to do's, like hang pictures and shelves and make and hang curtains and hang towel bars and coat hooks, and make a useable entry way, and we still have lots of unpacking to do too, but we're concentrating on all baby and birth-related tasks, and that has helped me focus.
I'm also just in the last 3 inches of my giant knitted baby blanket, and I'm weaving in all the ends now so that I can just keep knitting until I go into labour, and then bind off. If it's a little short, so be it! When I'm bored of knitting the blanket, I'm also working on a pair of longies. I really wanted to have at least one more sweater knit for this baby, one more hat, one more pair of booties, and a kicking bag, but clearly that isn't going to happen.
I wish we could make freezer meals, but our freezer is about the size of a shoebox. I don't know why the co-op decided that a teeny bachelor-sized apartment fridge was the right appliance for a 3-bedroom townhouse. It's frustrating.
But it feels so good to be getting things done.
