In full effect!!!!!!!!!!!

Three weekends ago I went through all of Skylar's old clothes and got them all separated and ready for Miss Sierra. I got all the newborn to 3 month clothes washed. I went through and cleaned out everything in her room and then moved on to mine. I found things that I had just stashed from over a year ago that needed to be thrown away or just put in its proper place. Last weekend and I completely mucked out Swae and Seth's room. It was mind blowing how many bags of garbage (just small pieces with no home or little pieces of paper or just trash!) and bags of goods to be given to Goodwill. Seriously, there were over 10 bags total! And that didn't include the random big toys that didn't fit in bags that were taken out. It was a miracle to be able to see their floors and shelves and bottom of their closets. This weekend, I have gone through cupboards, got all the new baby clothes from my shower washed and put away, got Sierra's crib all set up, her letters hung on the wall, gone through all Skylar's toys. I think I have pretty much hit every room in the house. I may have a few more cupboards to hit and I need to go through my closet.

It feels so good to have gotten so much done. It is nice to be able to look around and see a difference. It is nice to feel so accomplished and to be getting things done that I know I won't be able to get to as easy, let alone want to, with a new bundle of joy at home.

I was laying in bed this morning and was floored to think that I have just over 6 weeks left in this pregnancy if I do go full term. That isn't long at all!! And personally, I think that I will be having this sweet little girl at least 2 weeks. So when I think of it like that, really not much longer at all! So, I am going to continue "nesting" and I am going to enjoy every single moment with Skylar, Swae, and Seth before a new baby joins this family.

That is awesome you have got all that done! Wow you're time is sneaking upon you. I am 6 months in a few days and have nothing done to prepare for this baby. I bet you're super excited to cuddle that sweet girl.
