Now there's a whole other side of the room with absolutely NOTHING on it, no pictures, no furniture, NADA! We ordered the glider and ottoman this weekend so that will go over there and I need to find some shelves to display all of her amazing books that she received at our last shower (along with mommy's porcelain ballerina that is currently living on the changing table).
In other news, today is Father's Day. I gave the Italian a priceless gift...an entire day with no nagging, not even asking for help with anything around the house or in the nursery. He was master of his own domain and free to do whatever he wanted without any comments (or facial expressions) from me! :) I made him breakfast this morning and gave him his real present...a bag full of "Daddy" books for him to read with Nicolette when she gets here. It also included the "New Father's Survival Guide" which he started reading right away and decided that he needs to do a will and update his life insurance pronto :) Then he went out to play some golf while I stayed home and continued to "nest".
I finally finished shampooing the carpets in our house. Today was spent shampooing the formal living room and dining room and I managed to do the first 5 steps on our staircase but I didn't think it was safe to go any higher. Then I cleaned and organized Nicolette's bathroom and put away all of her clothes that we have so far. I also made a few more freezer meals so that we have a "stash" to grab after she arrives. So far I've made 2 chicken casseroles, a lasagna and a huge batch of chili that I've divided up into 3 separate meals. If anyone has any other good (and semi-healthy) make ahead freezer recipes to share please do so!!!
Next weekend I have our last baby shower thrown by my "roomie" Laura...it's been almost 10 years since we lived together, but she'll always be known as roomie. Looking forward to some girlie time and feeling so blessed to be surrounded by so many generous and wonderful friends and family!
It's back to the grind tomorrow...Cheers to all! Just a few more weeks!
