The nesting started with clearing out the card table full of boxes photographs that's been in the corner of our bedroom for two years - yes, TWO YEARS - with the intent that I would sort the photos before Zadie arrived. We see how that went. But I found some to share with you all!
So that's gone. The photos are in a tote in the attic closet. That type of project is for someday when I don't have children of the leg-climbing age. And it's amazing how big our bedroom looks now.....
But in general, I'm trying to stay on top of the housework. Two and a half weeks left! Oh my goodness. I have been keeping the kitchen pretty good this week. Laundry is almost caught up (minus the baby items I have yet to dig out). But I still haven't quite found the motivation to pull all the chairs out from the table and sweep every day. It needs it 3 times a day. How long til the boys can do that?
I have, however, taught them to do this:
And then there's this one from September:
Welcome to Rachel's sweat shop.
There were 10 gallons of plums to pit. They wanted to help!
We still haven't decided on names. I had some that I liked, but they weren't doing anything for Paul. We sat on the couch last night and talked about it. We may have a boy's name! We'll see. As always, it's subject to change when it involves me. :) Or when it involves Jacob. His latest suggestions have been "Noodle" and "Muffler."
I had my first end-of-term "invasive" check up this week. Not close in that area. Although that can change quickly, as anyone knows. I don't really feel that close, so I'm thinking my due date is right. I did, however, get the new phone extensions for Paul's work, just in case I have to call him home from work. As it stands now, he starts vacation two days before my due date. That's been fine for the other 3, but I'm half expecting this one to do something completely unexpected.
Well, I really should get to bed. Blogging is such a time suck! But, unlike Facebook, at least there's something for you all to enjoy for my time spent on here. :)
