I can’t even control it anymore. I am nesting like it’s nobody’s business. I am so envious of all you pregnant peeps who can kick back and relax during your third trimester because with both my pregnancies I’ve been a label-makin’, dust bunny killin’, floor cleanin’ nutcase. I just seriously get this feeling that this baby cannot exit my body until everything is perfectly in it’s place. I seriously woke up last night and started thinking about how I could move our washing machine and dryer to clean behind them. That just aint even normal… right?
All that said, I am trying to force myself to sit more during these final two weeks. Especially given that as of last week I was already 3 cm dilated / 70% effaced. I just keep getting this visual of her just falling out of there while I’m walking around. OK… sorry, don’t visualize that. But before I completely kick back, I thought I would take a second and roll around in the organized goodness of baby Emma’s nursery closet and share it with you guys.
Hopefully you’ve already checked out Dylan’s nursery closet and how we rolled with that one. Although I still love how his turned out, we definitely made it a lot harder than it had to be by completely overhauling the closet with a new closet system and removing the standard white shelf that was already installed. For Emma’s, we kept the original top shelf but added a second one several feet below and then an additional half shelf at the bottom.
This big brother was all too happy to help… especially because he got to use tools.
I became a big big fan of the Delta Nursery Storage Set set when I ordered it for Dylan’s closet a few years back, so I knew I just had to get it in pink for Emma.
I also recently discovered this pink label tape for my Brother labeler that matched perfectly. I may have squealed in the Staples label aisle.
Also within the Delta Nursery Set are these handy dandy size labels. And yes, that’s her coming home dress. Ekkkkkk…. I’m having a girrrrrrrrl.
The top shelf of the closet is currently housing infant toys, to-be-collected memories and items I’m passing down to her. The smaller boxes to the right (from Target) are for seasonal items (Thanksgiving bibs, Christmas socks, etc) and extra nursing parts.
Again, something else I loved when organizing Dylan’s room was using his top drawer to store diapers, wipes and creams. This allowed me to fit soooooo much more than I ever could in a bin on top of the dresser.
All of the other drawers just house onesies, pants, blankets, etc.
Oh and I also recently added a new basket to her bookshelf that I’m crushing on….
I found this canvas Toy basket at Home Goods for a couple bucks <3
Well that’s it! Now it’s time to lay around, eat bon-bons (I still have no clue what they actually even are…?), and wait for baby Emma to arrive!
