Everyone says that nesting is a huge part of pregnancy. I am starting to really get into the nesting stage. We have order the crib and the dresser/changing table. I have been looking like crazy for bedding, a rocker, and other decorative items. The biggest thing that we will have to overcome is going to be getting the rooms ready.
The To-Do List:
Vacuum each room & hallway
Clean out unnecessary clothes & boxes
Rearrange the furniture in our room
Collect hangers & hang all clothing
Purchase small shelving for an entertainment center
Purchase & Set up covered cage for wawas outside
Professionally clean room & hallway carpets (plus scotchgard) – Scheduled 8/20
Get crib and dresser/changer delivered – Scheduled 8/27
Rocker/Glider with ottoman
Picture frames and pictures
Window coverings (heavy curtains)
Today we had the company that will be professionally cleaning and scotchgarding the carpets come by with an estimate. I am pretty pleased with them. I just hope they do a good job. I will give them a thorough review after they complete the job, which is scheduled for August 20th at 9am. Then we also scheduled the delivery of the crib for August 27th between 12pm and 2pm. So, by that time we will have to have the first 6 items on my list completed.
Now in my search for the cutest items for the nursery, I am going with a monkey theme. It is green monkeys. the bedding looks something like this…
I am going to be one of those women in the first row. I will be there dragging Ben along to diaper dolls and practice CPR. It will be definitely a good class to be in. What classes did you take, if any? Did you like them/not like them and why? Any other classes you can recommend to a soon-to-be mommy?
Well, tomorrow will be pregnancy update #1. You will see how it goes and I can’t wait to fill you in on all the good stuff.
