I don't use fancy gadgets or phones to make them either. No...I write, and re-write, and re-write lists in simple single subject notebooks. All my blog and sewing project ideas, recipes, reminders to pay bills, etc. For some reason it works for me.
I had this really loooong "Before Baby Bucket List." Some of it is not even listed here because some of these items really entailed ten. You know how that goes?
It's been sooo nice to run a pen through most of my list.
A big one was the
I made the artwork above the crib from 12 x12 square canvases from Michael's. They sell them in 7 packs and 2 packs. So I got one of each. I am NOT an artist so I have to admit that this came out a little differently than I imagined.
I wanted to do the background in coral (I really love that shade of pink!), but settled instead for a tan/beige acrylic paint that matched the rest of the room.
I think it makes the room feel feminine and peaceful.
As for the diaper changing station. Still kind of bare right now. I might add some fabric decals later, but for now I'm happy with it.
The shelf is stocked with enough diapers for about one day :)...
and the boys' closest has boxes of diapers spilling out thanks to some great friends who threw me a diaper shower.
I couldn't help but put two outfits in there.
easy baby skirt and the booties I made her. I don't know if she'll wear the skirt but why not have options?
We live super close to the hospital, so I haven't packed my bag yet, but that isn't as fun to do anyway. ;) It will probably be something I do while contracting or something.
Those large casseroles should last more than one day. I hope no one gets sick of lasagna, soups and chicken pot pie.
I also gave the
I only do it about every 2-3 months since Reid hates them. Really hates them. So it's nice to have that out of the way. Plus, they look handsomely primped and prepped for the baby's arrival.
Oh it was so much fun, so much work, and so worth it.

Wow...that's a lot of feathers!
Thank you to my guests for nesting with me!
And to you readers, thank you for following along and helping me get ready to welcome our new bundle to the world.
It feels good to be ready for her to come. I have a few small items left, but nothing urgent.
Except for one pretty important item...
Yeah. We've got nothing. Plenty of names but none that we both can agree on. If you have some suggestions, we could always use more!
But for now...I'll rejoice in our nest being feathered and ready for her to come.
Have a blessed day.
