Nesting-27 Weeks

I breathe a small sigh of relief as I enter into my third trimester. Some might say this small sigh is more of a gasp as I'm continually out of breath at this point, but call it what you will. Jeremy and I have both been warned that with the third trimester comes the nesting instinct. This is the idea that we have to do all we can now to get ready for these babies, so that their arrival at home is the best it can be. For me, it seems to be more about control. I have no control over how and when these babies will arrive, but color-coding their onsies, organizing the garage, cleaning the refrigerator twice in a week, all is totally within my control. Either way, the nesting took over this weekend after a nightmare of a week last week. The furniture was delivered last week and it is the wrong color, we ordered a lighter wood. At this point they are saying they can order it (again) and fix their mistake, but it would take 14 weeks and honestly, we don't have 14 weeks, so we are going to make it work. Here is the week in pictures...

Last week the grandmothers got highlighted, well here are a few of the men in Lilly & Addy's life, Jeremy is on the far right, with Grandpa Dave on the left and Grandpa Ian in the middle. This is at the US Open last weekend (yes, that's the real trophy). Jeremy later told me that this was the best day of his life--after some quick deliberation, he recanted and said it was the best day of his life after our wedding day and the day we found out we were expecting :-)

Oh my gosh!! It's so cute and you're getting so big!! I miss you!! I have been telling Kathy that you guys need to make a trip to Indiana Beach and I can hook you up with some tacos!!

I am glad that your pregnancy is going so well. Those babies are going to be so cute and spoiled!!

The nursery is so beautiful:) I love it. I actually think the wood looks good. Why isn't there a framed picture of President Clinton for the babies to look at? Spoiler alert-I actually bought Addy and Lilly a CD of all President Clinton's greatest speeches so you can play it for them!!!!!! I want them to get used to having a President Clinton, cause we might have one again soon!!!!! You look gorgeous - I CANNOT get over your cleavage:):)

Aimee, both you and the nursery are beautiful!! And I agree with Catherine, I think the wood is a beautiful finish, so if you do keep it, it really does look very nice. :)
