Nesting...

I've been trying to get a few things ready for this little girl before she comes. I'm trying to be a lot more prepared this time, unlike my first time around with Dallin. Dallin came a month early and I had NOTHING ready. So this time, I think I've been a little crazy in trying to get stuff ready to go. I've been trying to sanitize and clean up everything in my house... problem is, I have no energy so it takes forever... I've had her car seat, a few pairs of clothes, blankets, and diapers in the car ready to go for about a month now... and a little suitcase is partially packed for Dallin in case we need to get out the door quick. I've also made 9 meals so far to put in the freezer so all Jeff has to do is heat them up in the oven after the baby is born... I feel like I'm getting there... :) But there's always more to do... Here's a few things I've been working on this last week... Just to keep me busy.
We still need to set up her bassinet and crib and everything, but I finally got her bedding in the mail (from Ebay). This is part of it:

Then I got these little bins from Walmart and made little tags for all of them so I know what's inside. We really don't have room for another dresser in the kiddo's room, so I'm putting all of her clothes under the changing table in these. I still need to glue the daiseys on:

Then I got this little thing of Drawers to put all of her bows/headbands/and whatever other little accessories she has in. I made a little tag for that too:

Anyway... I have a few more projects in mind, and of course I need to finish these... But like I said- I'm getting there... :)
Oh, and
6 WEEKS LEFT!!
It's getting closer!

How stinkin' cute are you! I can't wait to see the final product - with all that cute pink stuff it's going to be adorable. The whole 9 meals already prepared is very impressive. Jeff should be counting his lucky stars to have such a prepared wife.

It sounds like you are way more prepared than I ever was for James. Good for you. Good luck with the next 6 weeks.
