I think I am now officially in the “nesting” phase of this pregnancy. Is there an official “nesting” phase, because I didn’t read about it in any of my pregnancy books…but I know many women have gone through this phase.
There are so many projects I want to finish before le bebe makes his or her appearance! But for now, here’s the slipcover I made last Friday for the nursing chair and ottoman in the nursery:
Here’s a close up of the fabrics (and Lucy):
I couldn’t find enough fabric I liked to make this slipcover, so I used two different fabrics to make enough for the chair and ottoman. I really like the green linen and love the green flower pattern. I figured, even if le bebe is a boy, he’s not going to care if the chair had flowers on it. Once he gets big enough, the chair will be moved to another room anyways.
I may also make a pillow to aid in nursing. We did get a bobby pillow, but I think you can never have too many pillows. All this area needs now is a small table to hold a glass of water or burb rugs…
The nursery is almost complete. Thanks to Dad & Jon, the black-out blind was installed this weekend (to aid in good naps!~) We also secured the bookcase to the wall in the case we have an adventurous kid who likes to climb. I know this probably won’t happen for some time, but I’d rather have it done and not have to try to remember to do it at a later date.
The mobile is on it’s way and I can’t to see it! I still have lots to put away from our baby shower (such generous friends & family!), but I will get it done soon.
Up this week is making fitted crib sheets. Provided it all works out according to plan, I will post photos & instructions by the end of the week. I have some “work” related items to take care of this week as well, so hopefully I can get at least one sheet finished and instructions posted.
Oh, and Panda has moved on from sleeping in the crib to the chair. I think he’s just trying everything out for le bebe for quality control purposes!
