Let the nesting begin!

Everything is going great in Draper land! Andy is adjusting well to school and I am adjusting well to having a ton of energy! It's been really nice to get some of my projects completed! We've recently started with all the rearranging that needs to be done before baby Gabe comes! Here's a sneak peak at just one finished project.

We love plants! We will be taking pictures throughout our rearranging process and then I'll post before/after pictures. There's still A LOT to be done! Like switching where the piano is to where our love seat currently is. I wish I could do this on my own but alas I must wait for big strong men to help. In the meantime I will be moving pictures all around so that our baby's room doesn't look like an office anymore. :)

Here are the sewing projects I've recently completed! Sewing has been great because I can do it on days I don't have a lot of energy.

Horray for burp cloths! I've finished two and have just four more to go for now.

I finished my wash cloths!

It has been a lot of fun to do all the nesting projects. It keeps me busy and our house was in desperate need of some TLC. (well.. still is) I recently found some really cute patterns for a quiet book and am hoping to start on that soon!! Hopefully I am ready to tackle a big project like that.

In other news, Andy's birthday is this Sunday! He'll be the big two-five. I have a fun little surprise(well.. he knows mostly about it now. As Mama Aro always says, "Surprises are just too exciting to keep all to yourself." planned for him on Saturday and I'll be sure to post some pictures of the event!

Goodnight and Good luck.


  1. LOVE the wash cloths!!! You should make me some!!! And the burp cloths are so cute!

  2. That's not a burp cloth, it's a prefold cloth diaper! At least that's how they get used in our house...

    I'm so glad you've got energy! After such a rough first trimester I'm happy you're feeling better :)
