This weekend we were able to work together and really step it up a notch! We made a list on Saturday morning...well, Erik did and I added to it (a lot). However, I was realistic and labeled a lot of my part of the list the "Dream List." I am very proud to say that we finished all but one thing on the original list (both Erik's and my contributions) and we even got to a few things on the "Dream List!"
Up until this weekend, we really didn't even have a room for the baby. And, yes, I know we will be keeping him with us in our room for a few weeks/months, but the idea of not even having a nursery was driving me crazy. This weekend we fixed that problem! We spray painted a dresser, rocking chair and foot stool, washed all the newborn-3 month size clothes we have (from Tryg), got them all put away, bought a rug, organized the room, hung some 'art,' put together a double stroller and even got a bunch of yard work done in the meantime!
Erik and I both feel like we got hit by a Mack truck...Erik even joked at church this morning that he pretty much only did yard work on Saturday and doesn't remember having a car accident, but it feels like there was a car accident. We're sore but I couldn't be more excited about how much we accomplished! I also think the baby's room is pretty cute (even if I do say so myself)!

P.S. The remaining item on the list...."packing the hospital bag." I'm less than four weeks from the due date now. I should probably get going on that.
