Is She Nesting?

I personally think it's a pretty funny expression to say an expectant mother is "nesting". I know it's been a REALLY long time since I've put up pictures of any sort, but here are a few I took of some of the things I've been getting ready.

All the newborn and onesies and sleepers are clean and ready to wear when Baby J arrives.

I'm just starting to set up the baby's room -- here's a picture of the dresses I "hung on the line". Not much else is set, but I'll try to take pictures when it is.

Baby's coming home outfit -- washed and packed (the sweater was my sister Emily's when she came home from the hospital. Mom gave it to me.)

The rest of the hospital bag packed and ready.

So, maybe I am "nesting". :)

Hmm, you have all of our minds reeling over what the "J" stands for.

And, yay, we're all counting down the days with you now!!!

Miss you, friend :)

Baby J stands for Jemimah, of course! Crazies! :) That's not her real name, but it's what Abby calls her.

My mom called her "Jemimah" and so Abby calls her "Baby J". Cede calls her Jemimah too.
