Nesting, nesting, nesting

26 weeks and all is well. Our full amnio results came back normal, and the little one is kicking up a storm in there all day (and all night -- yeesh) long.

And the nesting bug has bitten me HARD. And it's a good thing, because we are still in the same tiny house that barely fit one kid. And because we don't have to buy all of the baby gear we did the first time, I can channel all of my nesting energy into home improvement. Which the Mr. is THRILLED about, let me tell you.

So, IKEA has been visited, paint chips have been taped and tucked in various places, rooms have been measured, and excess belongings have been (mostly) purged. Here's what we have on tap for the next 6 weeks or so (in rough chronological order):


  • Paint and install crown molding in master bedroom
  • Build and install wardrobes in master bedroom, move husband's clothes from room which is currently the office but will soon be a playroom
  • Move desk from office/playroom to kitchen nook; move play kitchen and bookshelf from Chicklette room to office/playroom
  • Install new sofa bed, rug, TV and assorted other items in playroom
  • Move all toys possible from various locations in house to playroom
  • Buy new toddler bed and install in Chicklette's room (she will share with #2 -- although she doesn't know that yet!)
  • Install new lighting fixtures in master bedroom, playroom, dining room, kitchen
  • Pray that baby doesn't come before above list is completed


So, we've got our work cut out for us.  But I'm having a ball planning all of this.  Will post before and after pictures if I remember!

Woohoo nesting! We just made the move into the toddler bed (via Ikea, of course), and it's gone surprisingly well. The Sundvik, I believe - which still works with daughter's continuing need to burrow her head into the corner in order to sleep.

Good luck with all the projects!
