As most of you know, the hubs and I are expecting our first baby! Our due date is in August, which for months has seemed ages away — but now, as I’m posting August’s wallpapers, this baby business is getting pretty real!
I feel like we’re miles away from having everything in order, and I keep waiting for that energy-charged nesting instinct to motivate me to finish up Baby’s bedroom… cute artwork would be nice, but truth be told, we don’t even have the crib assembled! My mother reminds me however, that there was a time when my grandparents lived with 3 children in a one bedroom apartment; either they all slept together in the same bed, or the babies fit perfectly well into blanket lined drawers. Sooo, I can probably relax a little.
I have one last week at work before I begin maternity leave (cue involuntary grinning and star twinkled eyes). I plan to spend the following weeks being kind to myself, eating well, and stocking up on the sleep I know I’ll miss once Baby arrives.
Wishing you all a lovely August long-weekend and many beautiful summer days ahead!
