Do you guys feel like you went through a "nesting" phase during your adoption? I've heard about nesting while pregnant, maybe around the 7/8 month? But I'm convinced that you nest while you're paper pregnant as well. Just me? I sure hope not. I've never experienced the "pregnancy nesting" so I'm not sure if the nesting I'm experiencing compares at all, but I'll share it with you anyway, maybe some can relate.
So, we've been in the waiting phase 9 months now...9. So like, if I was physically pregnant I'd be ready to pop. Anyway, this odd urgency of needing to get things organized and cleaned hit me hard this weekend. I tore up our file cabinet and totally re organized it, why? I have no clue, no one besides me sees it but I felt like I needed to do it, so I did. I'm currently in the process of trying to figure out how to organize my kitchen..why? No clue just that "sense" of needing to do it I guess. A friend of mine told me that moms to be nest because they know there's going to be change coming and the need to have everything "ready" when the change comes is important. But you guys, adoption is so unknown..I could be nesting forever I feel like! I don't know how much more organizing my house can take (I also organized my car...this is scary) but I suppose with nesting comes fun things like getting a room ready..which we also kinda started! That part of nesting is fun, I love searching Pinterest for ridiculously overpriced furniture and dream of what our little ones room could look like if I had a zillion dollars.
These are rooms I'm currently drooling over...
Do you think it's weird to have a tree inside? I think it's kinda fun!
See that wiener dog under the bed?? We have a wiener dog so I think we need that toy for sure
And this might be a little on the girlie side, and we're requesting a boy but still, this room? So sweet!
So all you mama's who have your little ones home...please tell me you went through a nesting phase and that I'm normal! :)
