Ever since Carly picked us, I haven't been too anxious or stressed. I think my mindset was just to chill and roll with things which helped keep me from bouncing around with excitement. (That definitely came in handy at work since I didn't mentally check out until I essentially walked out the door.) However, I do have to say that my laid-back armor got a few cracks in it during our baby shower last Sunday. Molly and Angie did an amazing job hosting the event. We also had so many wonderful family and friends on hand supporting us that it really struck home for me. The night afterwards, I was feeling rather sappy as I sorted through baby clothes, toys, blankets, and so many other adorable baby items.
Today, Andy and I really focused on our final preparations and it's been a sentimental day. We cleaned, we organized, we washed baby clothes, and we assembled nearly everything. Just looking around our room and the future baby room, it feels 'right' to see dedicated baby spaces and items. One of the things we really like the most is our 'Baby Nook' which is a converted closet space in our bedroom. After a little work, the fresh coat of paint has been bedazzled with some new forest friends.
