I’m crazy, but leave me alone! I’m Nesting!!

People have asked if I have… started cleaning the house like crazy? Nope. Folding and refolding baby clothes? Nope. Repainted or made a million baby items? Nope and nope. But I will admit that I have reorganized, sorted and completely labeled all the cloth diapers more than ten or even fifteen times. What’s wrong with that huh? It needs to be done! When people like Grandmama or SisterB come and need to change a diaper (that’s why they’ll be here right???) they need to know what’s what right? It’s necessary. So I’ve got my labels from Accessories to Medium gDiapers, Medium Kissaluvs, Medium FuzziBuns, Night Fitteds and Inserts… Small/Medium Wool for AppleBlossom as well as Medium Covers, Prefolds for AppleBlossom in the day and night if necessary, One Size Covers, All-in-One OS Diapers… Newborn Wool, Newborn/Small Covers for OrangeBlossom, Newborn Prefolds (in the laundry being prepped!), Newborn Fitted and AIOs,. . .

We’ve been reading God Gave Us You repeatedly as well as The Berenstain Bears and the New Baby and reading various Pregnancy books and Magazines (or “mag-zeeenz”). AppleBlossom loves looking at the pictures of babies and has even taken to carrying her “baby Jeez” everywhere with her (that. . .
