Nesting: Full Speed Ahead

I think I am completely out of control at this point. All rational decision making skills are shot for the next few months. Mark and I made a trip to Babies R Us this week and we came home with the nursery decorations. I didn’t stop with the bedding…no. I went for IT ALL! Lamps, wall hangings, blankets and extra sheets. My only explanation to Mark was: ‘This is our first baby!’

Bless his heart. He tolerates me very well. I’m usually not this spend-happy and VERY conservative with our disposable income.

I think Mark is in his nesting phase, too (if guys go through one). He spent the weekend painting over the bright orange in the nursery. I didn't even ask him to do it. Let me say, orange is an extremely difficult color to cover up and I miss my orange walls a bit.

I can’t share anything about the nursery until we have it complete. My mom knows but only because she is going to help paint and needs to start getting some ideas. Thanks Mom!  Hopefully, we will have something to show by mid-February.

I think we have our name list narrowed down. I don’t want to reveal anything until we have decided on at least two ‘for sure’ choices.

I had a few packages arrive this weekend for Baby G. Thank you so very much to the people who sent them…you know who you are. Love you all! Baby G is going to be the best dressed kiddo in all of Austin.

Hope you all had a great weekend.


  1. Men do nest just in a different way. I can't wait until next weekend so we can paint! This is exciting. Thank you for including me in the nursery prep. Good thing Mark got a head start so we can hopefully get the rest done in 2 days.

  2. I cant wait to see what you guys put together for baby G!
