Nesting already?

If you are here for ICLW, my story is here - not that I don't want you reading all of my other scintillating posts!

I'm afraid we may be nesting already. I say we since it appears I have succeeded in dragging my husband into it with me. I will say that Saturday's events involved no coercion from me whatsoever. I was completely innocent! We stopped at Target on our way to a friends house to pick up some flip flops for Joey. He still has a hobbit foot due to the sprain and tennis shoes were killing him from all the pressure. So we stroll around, find some flip flops and then suddenly - AMAZINGLY - he asks me - "Where's the baby stuff? I swear to you - I heard angels singing when he asked me that - music to a pregnant woman's ears! So we hit the baby section and fell in love. Currently we are coveting this crib -

but, we already have someone giving us a crib.
This changing table -

and this high chair -

Don't you worry though - that's just a few things off the list! I have a feeling our registry is going to be quite long.

On Sunday - I think the nesting kicked in for both of us. The first task at hand was shampooing all the carpets in the house. I'm not going to lie or sugarcoat it. They were all just plain nasty. Once we got started on it though we kept on going. Since we ended up moving all of the furniture out of the living room to shampoo the carpet in there - (Note to self - never put a drink down where the dog can knock it over again. Dr. Pepper is a b*!@# to get out of your carpeting) I decided to go ahead and rearrange the furniture in there to a more logical setting. If you remember the room use to look something like this -

Now the room is setup like this -

Don't ask me why it took me almost a year to arrange the furniture so that you can actually see the TV but now that we did - we love it! The room also seems alot more spacious then it did before!

Jellybean's room also has a slow start to it. The carpets are shiny, Joey has drawn the line for the chair rail/mural divider. We have printed out the pictures he will be using to paint the mural too. He should be picking up the crib today or tomorrow and we will start painting/assembling. This is where we are so far in there -

I still have a bunch of cleaning and purging to do in the closet in there but I feel like we got so much accomplished yesterday that if we can keep it we'll be in good shape by the time Jellybean comes. Yup...still Jellybean. We have not agreed on a name yet. But we did veto many many choices that one or the other brought up. That's progress in a way - right?

Glad to hear I am not the only one starting kind of early. We've had our crib since week 12 and it's been set up since about 16 weeks. I am slowly gathering all of the decor for the room while we attempt to declutter the closet that has been full of junk for who knows how long!

We've been in our house for 8 years and I have just now *finally* hung all of our art on the walls!

Happy ICLW!
