nesting: the beginnings

Monday, April 8, 2013

- Enjoying a hot drink with friends at the addison road markets chait tent.
- A baby project in progress. It will be a mobile with a moon in the middle.
- Beautiful, beautiful kale for our daily green smoothies.
- A yellow carrot! Made into a yummy juice that I'll blog about soon.
- This week's flowers; I love how they look like mini pom poms.

This weekend, at 35 weeks pregnant, the husband and I finally starting nesting. To be honest, I haven't felt the nesting urge kick in yet but I'm a procrastinator so I suppose that's hardly surprising. You'll probably find me at 40 weeks pregnant scrubbing the bathroom with a toothbrush. In the meantime, we decided we better get down to business, instinct or not.

Over the weekend we visited Bunnings, Target, the Bower and Woolworths. We bought cloth nappies and face cloths to use in labour, cozy flannel pyjamas to pack in the hospital bag, baby singlets and other bits and bobs for labour and birth.

At home, we took advantage of a council pickup and de-cluttered like crazy. Best feeling ever. I also cleared out our spare room - a task I'd been avoiding for months - and got it all ready for my mom to stay. Of course, there was also some sewing for baby. A sweet little project I'll hopefully be sharing here on Thursday. Right now we're waiting on a chest of drawers I ordered online to arrive; when it does all of the baby's things will be put away. This week I'll go to Ikea, pack the hospital bag, and write some more lists. Oh so many lists...

p.s. this is my 501st post, wow!


  1. I love these flowers. De-cluttering feels so nice, definitely necessary in preparing for baby!

  2. De-cluttering is the best feeling! And the flowers are beautiful, I have no idea what they are called but I also love their pom pom look! x

  3. Your dahlias are beautiful! We have been buying a bunch a week from a tiny florist nearby - Sam loves the little pom-pom ones.

    Exciting times ahead, lady! Thinking of you all.
