Post Baby Nesting?

We will start off with a cute picture of Smiles. Who wouldn't want to start out with a smile like that!? He is just so happy lately and I love it. He sleeps when he is supposed to and he is happy when he isn't asleep, unless of course his mommy isn't getting his food out fast enough for him. Who could blame a guy for that though? I mean seriously, it's supposed to be ready whenever he needs it- come on MOM!

We had a very productive day today. This is Smiles' "I can't believe you got all of that done today Mom!" face. Isn't he good at it =). First of all, for those that were worried about getting store bought cards from me for a while, you are in luck. I was so depressed by the thought of giving up my craft time for such a long time that I came up with a plan. As the ever popular "they" say, "Necessity is the mother of invention." I decided to fix a few things around from my previous change that I took so much time with on Saturday. It was worth it though, don't worry.

I asked Curly this morning if she wanted to ORGANIZE with Mommy today. It was great, she got so excited. It's amazing what a little bit of tone can do to make something sound exciting. We started with her room, which wasn't bad, but I swear that I am nesting again because I rearranged everything! Can you call it nesting when your child is three months old? I am going to whether it's acceptable or not. Below are the pictures of her room after the changes. She loved every minute and was very pleased to get to help choose where things were going to go.
Then we also took all of my craft supplies and moved them from Smiles' room to the closet in my room. I started that yesterday actually, but we finished most of it today. I filled up my Goodwill pile again- I seem to be getting rid of a lot of things these days. And we cleared out Smiles' room of most stuff. Apparently he might get a room of his own after all...just with a closet taken over by his parents. Who needs a closet when you are a baby anyway. I may or may not post pictures of the closet later. I haven't decided. I will probably show you his new room once I get it all finished as well.

What a day. I say that a lot. It was full of productivity and lots of cleaning. I forgot to mention the four loads of laundry that I washed and folded and put away as well. One of those involved making our bed too. I despise washing sheets but I love the feeling of climbing into bed with fresh, crisp sheets! Oooh la la. Wanna know a secret? It's about what a freak I am about my sheets when they are clean...I beg Handsome to let me get into the sheets first because I am so obsessed with the feeling you get when you climb into them when the are tucked so tightly. Ahhhhhh (that's a pleasant ahhh, not a screaming one). I can just feel them now =). I may or may not have been known to cry over it when my request was forgotten and I had to get into the bed that I worked so hard to make, only to find that it wasn't quite tucked and was no longer straight. I don't know, I can't remember such things.

I totally agree, we can definatley still nest after having a baby! In fact, I was doing the same thing today! Heck if it takes awhile for the rest of the "baby hormones" to leave our system, why not say the same thing about the "nesting bug" too! :)

You are so cute! I just love you. And I love to ORGANIZE. It's just the best feeling. My house is in some serious need of it right now. And can I say that little Benjamin is SO UNBELIEVABLY CUTE!

You most certainly can. And I will most certainly agree with you!
