Nesting

August 28, 2014


{One of the many projects I've been working on. Tutorial here and the fabric is from JoAnn's}

I've been a little M.I.A. lately around here. I can't believe it has been so long since my last post. I went into full nesting mode. I shopped till I couldn't shop any more. I sewed till I wanted to pull my eyeballs out (which isn't very long, sewing is not my strong suit). Lastly I have been working my little fingers to the bone on the nursery.

These past few weeks have been challenging for me. I have come to realize that I haven't been facing reality. I tried to fill up my days with all of these tasks so that I could I guess function. I am going to be a mom. We are going to be parents. And I am scared to death. I don't know how many times I have heard, "you're never ready, you just go with it." As a perfectionist at heart this just doesn't gel with me. I want nothing but the best for our son (as I am sure any mother feels). I am just worried if that is going to be me. These crazy hormones I swear ;)!

I turned 38 weeks this week. This little guy could be here in mere days or weeks. I can't believe that we are nearing the end. It seems like I have been pregnant forever (what does having a normal body feel like again)? I have decided to make a conscious effort to rely on faith more this week. To pray constantly for guidance and comfort. Hopefully I can convince my perfectionist side to take some much needed time off!
