When We’re Not Building A Nest

The nesting for this pregnancy has gotten completely out of control. Somewhere between the anticipation of my decorating hobby being put on hold for awhile with life changing very soon adding a 3rd little one to care for  and an interest fascination obsession with craigslist, I got the crazy idea to re-paint our bedroom, completely re-do our dining room including refinishing and painting a table,chairs and buffet, shop for some new pieces of furniture for our formal living room, create a couple picture wall gallery’s on many bare walls of the house, finish baby boy’s room, not to mention the necessary preparations like cleaning the fam van, installing the car seat, bringing the bassinet down from the rafters in the garage, packing my bags, etc etc. 
Needless to say, and completely self-inflicted, Ive been feeling a tad overwhelmed lately with wanting to create the perfect nest for baby boy.
But, when I’m we’re (yes, I’ve got child laborers, Shhhh) not sanding and spray painting and sanding and painting some more, we’ve been…
enjoying glimpses of the summer weather just around the corner…

…dressing up like a princess and waiting anxiously on the front porch to greet daddy from work…

…playing outdoors until dusk…
…enjoying special sister time before their lives change as well…
…and enjoying family time in our last few days (or weeks) as a family of four…
This weekend, however, I am a bachelorette. That’s right. No husband and no kids. It’s the final push and with the help of pops, I think we just might be able to pull off these projects  and get a lot crossed off that to-do list. 
Many before and after’s coming soon…

  1. Oh and I love how Ms A is playing with cars! My sisters and I totally did that too! It'll be a perfect bonding activity for her and little bro Soren!

  2. I love the contrast in expressions evident in these pictures between Sweet G and Alizea. They are indeed their own little people, with their own mind, personality and uniqueness, just as it should be! Wonderful photography.
