Getting Ready for Little Lungette

Maybe it's the weather? Maybe it's because I spend more time at home now? Or maybe it's the fact that we're going away on Friday for almost a month? Whatever it is, I'm definitely nesting a lot earlier this time around. 

When I was pregnant with Sebby, I remember being a lot more focused on work and most days after work, I napped in the afternoon, got up to eat then went to bed soon after. Darren led the charge, encouraging me to get organized and helping out with cooking and freezing meals, etc...

This time around we have no extra freezer space so we won't be cooking and freezing meals but I am all over organizing our place and getting things ready for Little Lungette. I've been organizing closets and getting rid of things we don't need. I have a bag of Sebby's old clothes ready to drop off at a charity shop and am wondering if there's anything else around our flat that can be sold or donated. Yesterday evening I sold our stroller on Gumtree (UK's version of Kijiji or Craigslist) and now every time I open the front closet, I smile at the space that has been freed up. This morning I sorted everything we've been given for Little Lungette (so much already!) and put it into labelled boxes on top of Sebby's wardrobe.

One more day before we leave for the Baltics and France. Hoping I can accomplish a few other little projects before leaving. I want to pick up some screws to put up a new frame that we bought and would LOVE if the weather would cooperate tomorrow so we could get a few loads of laundry out, I have new diapers (and dirty ones too!) that could use some sun & fresh air while they dry!

Yes I've totally been nesting lately - I finally can!
We hired some friends to come paint the "party house" and move some furniture around between the 2 houses and it makes me oh-so-happy!
Still a bit more to do, but it's progress for sure!

You guys are crazy travelers! What's in the Baltics/France? Leisure or ministry? Have fun and enjoy!
