Where's Waldo? And other randomness.

Except we're not naming her Waldo.

Harrison loves to find his baby sister. Or maybe he just loves to find my bellybutton, whatever. (Which is getting pretty easy these days because it's starting to poke out already.) I cannot STAND the feeling of having my bellybutton poked, but I just can't seem to resist those baby giggles!





Over the weekend my mom painted the baby's nursery. I LOVE it! I'm so excited to see it come together. The bedding should be here in a couple of weeks and then I have a few more finishing touches to make, and then I'll share the pictures.

We're also in the process of organizing the play room. We moved our TV armoire in there to house the overflow of toys -- it seriously lowers my blood pressure to have them put up and out of sight. They don't stay put up and out of sight for long but I feel better to know that everything has a place at least!

We bought a new-to-us TV armoire for our living room off of Craigslist. They are now virtually impossible to find in stores since the trend is to have huge flatscreen TVs with the large wall units, but our living room has a niche and it was either find an armoire or switch to a TV stand. I'm all for things that close -- especially since a certain little somebody loves to touch and break everything in sight -- so I kept an eye out for the listings on Craigslist. I have to admit it can be slightly addicting! I've never been a huge Craigslist shopper but now that I've found the baby's crib, dresser, and now TV armoire on there I'm a pretty big fan. We got a really great deal, which is good because we had a pretty small budget.

I am also trying to get everything else around the house organized. I don't know if it's the nesting instinct kicking in a little early since in the back of my mind I know bedrest might be in my future, but I'm glad the motivation is coming from somewhere. It obviously didn't come from my New Year resolutions since it's almost March - ha! I started to tackle the closets last night and emptied probably 3/4 of my stuff out. It was full of business suits and dressier stuff and pumps that I haven't even touched in almost a year and a half. I don't know if I should donate them or store them up in the attic? I hate to get rid of my entire work wardrobe since it was not cheap, but I hate that somebody else could be getting use out of it when I may not ever again. By the time I go back to work will it even be in style (or even fit...)? I also realized that my wardrobe is in serious need of some help. I haven't shopped for non-maternity, non-career stuff in a reeeeally long time and I feel completely at a loss for having any type of fashion sense. I'm at that age where I don't want to dress too old but it's also becoming pretty obvious that the Hollister short shorts and tank tops need to be retired, ha!

I love the name you picked out for your baby girl.

I don't know if I missed that in an earlier post, or if it's an accident that you said it on the video... but very cute.
