Nesting

Nesting is serious, serious business. I mean I thought in my second trimester I was exerting some sort of nesting behavior. But then all of a sudden I am 8 months pregnant and BAM...Emeril style I was on a roll.

Like I said yesterday we lost a guest room and gained a nursery. While it's not a huge, huge deal our guest room actually had a lot of guests! Some pretty hilarious memories were made in there by practically all my friends. So when I started cleaning it out all I could think was "where the hell is this stuff going to go?"

On top of it, all of David's stuff took residence in that room - because I managed to take up every inch of closet and dresser in our bedroom. (Remember we are renters in the Bay Area - you don't get a lot of space! But you also don't get tornadoes...) So last night at 10:45 I had the envision of a total bedroom makeover. Knowing that David probably wouldn't be on board so late at night had me thinking I could do it myself.

Yeah...8 months pregnant not so brilliant. But we managed to fit it all in our room and our room actually feels larger!! Don't ask me how but it does, even David agrees.

Now I want to organize everything from under the kitchen sink to the linen closet. Knowing full well that the house will never be this organized or clean again in 8 short weeks.

Which is where this whole blog post is going to the mamas...

I purposely have not filled the top drawer of the dresser/changing table in the nursery and wanted some tips and tricks of what exactly to store in it. I have a diaper caddy with lotion, wipes, diapers, nail cutters, pacifiers, and some butt paste. But what will I want at arms reach but not necessarily in eyes sight?

Always look forward to getting input from you guys! xoxo

And a picture - because what is a blog post without a photo? This is how my husband started his day yesterday. Proof that pregnancy brain is contagious :)

  9. I am right there with you, babe. I spent the last 3 nights organizing our medicine/hall closet upstairs. THREE NIGHTS. Purging, organizing, labeling, sorting, etc. It looks awesome! The drawers in our wine cabinet are next!! Now I want to do the rest of the house. But there's no way I have the time or energy to do it before Mim arrives. I need to pick my battles. As for baby things you'll need close by - burp cloths (we had a spitter, so we needed tons of them), pacifiers (if she takes one), snot sucker, gripe water, nipple cream, nursing pads, pony tail holders (for you), socks, bibs, chapstick.

  11. nesting is a real thing. i know this because my least domestic/nesty friend went nuts for nesting the last two months of pregnancy. my stepmom nested the whole time she was pregnant. lol

  12. I secretly love the nesting stage! I actually bleached & scrubbed down our garbage cans at one point! Top drawer of the dresser is just diapers for us, although we use cloth so they take up all that space!

  14. That photo is hilarious! My boyfriend tells me all the time I am nesting (I'm not even pregnant) I can't imagine the extreme nesting that is to come. Don't you just love a good re-org? Life changing :)
