Nesting Projects




Here I am at 35 weeks and I feel as though it has arrived too quickly! I haven't really even thought about having 2 kids! You know that "nesting" thing everyone talks about? Well, I kind of caught the bug yesterday and HAD to dust my house, so my dear sister Kortni was over yesterday and helped me dust. Anyways, I wouldn't call what I have a nesting bug, I'd call it a "create and take on as many projects as you can bug and finish them quickly, so that you can start the next one" bug. Stephen will testify to this as the only sound that he has been able to hear is the sewing machine until late hours into the night. (He can't decide whether he wants to move my desk into the next room or not, for fear of never seeing me again if he does) It started with the burp cloths, moved onto the rag blanket which I must say took the longest, and then the sock and glove stuffed animals and onto the Nifty Knitter for the hats. Beck was gracious enough to model one, even if it is a bit small. :) I still have like 10 burp cloths to sew and another blanket pinned together and ready, but I wanted to stitch a word on it like my friend Rischel did, but our Wal-Mart doesn't sale stitching floss! Are they crazy???? We are also trying to get a trip to Mexico together for the first week of May, so the last few days have been crazy searching for our Marriage Certificate to have my name changed on my passport (I had framed it and hung it on the wall and forgotten!) and get passport photos. And all to our dismay we can't even go if Paisley isn't born in the next 2 weeks! No pressure or anything, but if she's not born by then we don't have enough time to get her passport info sent off and back in time before we leave for the trip. Hmmm.... But if we don't it in time then I can make it to my sister's baby, Broxton's, blessing (if it's in May, if not, no problem, we'll get to it the next month :) and my little brother's college graduation, May 9th. Then hopefully if all works out and Bishop confirms it we can have Paisley's blessing on the 11th of May because my family will be up in Moscow for my brother's grad which is only 2 hours away instead of 8. :) So no hurry Paisley, your entrance into the world will be the greatest of all of these things anyways, so if we have to wait for ya, no problem. ;)

Just in case you are wondering, my head is spinning!! Nesting indeed.

I'm still in shock you are 35 weeks! So close.

Why are you looking so sad in that picture? Anyway, your little creations are to die for. I absolutely LOVE them. The little sock animals turned out so cute too. I've got to learn how to do those. I'm so jealous of your craftiness :(
