Little Pieces

IMG_6483

The days are buzzing by and we're in a flurry of preparations. This nesting stuff is serious business. There are lots of little things to get together. There are lots of big things to get together.

Things like buying a vehicle, right now, so that we can bring Peanut home from the hospital. I'm pretty sure the hospital won't let us throw him in the back of the Tacoma, car seat or not.

I just had my baby shower Saturday (which I will share with you) and I've done some shopping this weekend and I'm ready to pull together the nursery.

I love this beeboyjoy picture by Kil.sook. It's even better in person. Her illustrations are unique, sweet and unconventional. Plus, the names of her illustrations make me laugh.

Something about this one reminds me of B. I think it's because he would totally stand there wearing a sock monkey on his head if I asked him to and his stance and expression would be the same.

There are all kinds of cute ones like this and this (which has a cute little saying/poem/tangent underneath it).

B & I are so looking forward to our baby bee boy.

Wise old owl. I've been picking up little things here and there for a long time and unearthing them and putting them on shelves has been fun.

This child is going to have a library of his own soon. There just can't be too many books. They are on shelves, in bins, in the closet, in the cubbies. Oh the books we'll read.

Excuse my absences on your blogs while I rush around to tidy and clean and nap and clean and decorate and buy and organize and wash.

The Braxton Hicks contractions that are happening so often now are a nice reminder that this baby is coming... and soon!

  5. I LOVE that owl... I can't wait to add to Peanut's book collection! I have one of The Kid's faves (2-3 times a night pretty much all of year 3) all ready to send as soon as I'm done with the thing that I'm making you that may or may not be done before Christmas. :)

  7. I can't WAIT!!! Can you have B put me on a texting list of friends or something when you go into labor so I can be praying for you and anticipating every second? I mean I feel like I should know for some reason... Nice. I just realized that I "invited" myself onto a need to know list..

    (You can totally say no by the way. LOL)
