They say pregnant women "nest" before the baby arrives. Hormones maybe? Sure, every other weird behavior is blamed on hormones. I don't know that I've really been nesting in the traditional sense (says the woman who shampooed carpets and cleaned blinds last week), like planning and decorating the nursery, but I suppose I have been. I'm making good progress on the baby quilt but I'm still not quite done. Here's a little preview.

Portland approves of the bassinet but he seems to think it is a perfect sized cat bed. We'll see what happens when there is a tiny human occupying Portland's space.
John also wants to replaced the kitchen sink, faucet, and back splash in October, before OP arrives. Not that I'm complaining, I just thought it was funny. We've always hated that sink and faucet, and the back splash leaves a lot to be desired. But I thought I was supposed to be the one nesting! I don't know that it's actually a hormone-driven behavior or if soon-to-be parents are just smart enough to realize once the little lump arrives, there won't be time for home projects or spring cleaning. We'll keep on "nesting" as long as I have energy and John can think of projects!
