S is For...

I am nearly in my 36th week of pregnancy, and the whole "nesting" phase I heard so much about is no myth! It's real, and I'm in the thick of it. Last week I organized and reorganized every cabinet and storage space in our house, cleaned the refrigerator, and de-dusted everything possible...oh, and I even folded and color coordinated tissue paper and ribbons (what?). This week has been the week of getting the sweet babe's nursery ready. We're getting close to being done, and ready to welcome our baby girl home.

Brett has been so wonderful. Though I keep him awake at night by all my tossing and turning, multiple trips to the bathroom, my new-found sound effects that accompany any new movement or roll, he is very gracious and understanding. Despite our sleepless nights, he has somehow found my pregnant tendencies endearing, including my nesting phase. He has been so helpful and accommodating, and quickly recognizes when I'm on a mission. He has been amazing at coming alongside me, helping to get sheet done! I am so grateful. The nursery is no exception. He has been my incredible furniture mover and re-mover, picture hanger, picture/art holder, among other things that a pregnant lady simply can't do.

Here it is, our Tiny One's very own room!

I have loved anticipating the arrival of our baby, and have excitedly and lovingly worked on many different sewing projects. I made these bumpers, dust ruffle, pillows and quilt for her crib (not that she'll know, or care...but I care!), which were all really enjoyable projects.

This is the "S" that Brett made for Tiny One's room. I love, love it. Swim, Swami, Slippy, Slappy, Slim, Slimmon, Ssswanson...Samsonite!
