|Rafa, doing his own type of "nesting" with the baby's clothes|
First, "pregnancy brain:" I was told that women in pregnancy (and especially late pregnancy) have a special knack for forgetting things and being spacey. This is supposedly due to hormones and just generally being distracted by all of the change. In my early pregnancy I was like, that's BS, I'm the same as I was before. And then the third trimester hit and I've been a total space-cadet for the past six weeks. Yesterday I couldn't find my cell phone and finally realized it was...in the REFRIGERATOR. I'm not making this up, I had thrown it in my Starbucks bag with a salad and put it in the fridge where it sat for a couple of hours, chilling.
Second, "nesting:" again, up until a few weeks ago I kept saying nesting isn't real, we are so unprepared for the baby, I haven't done anything to the nursery, etc. And then somewhere around 33 weeks I went into power mode and have been making "To Do" lists galore, organizing closets, washing and folding tiny clothes...Patrick even scrubbed down the refrigerator for me! We also took a "baby care" class from our doula, Vanessa, last weekend, which helped make us both feel a bit more prepared for baby boy's arrival. Check out the adorable pictures of Patrick "changing" his first diaper. :)
