This, my dear photography friends, was not a good day. I barely slept last night and didn't get a bit of rest today between church and kids and grocery shopping and kids and...trying to get ready for a baby. I decided I'd indulge my nesting urge a little and set up the pack 'n play with the bassinet thingy which is where we'd planning on the baby sleeping as long as she was in our room. Alas...only 3 of the 4 poles necessary for the bassinet attachment made it to Indiana. I'm not sure where the 4th might be. It's one of those things I've looked at several times, even before moving and started to think, "Now I see three...doesn't that thing need fou...." and on to the next thought I'd go. But here we are. No place for the baby to sleep.
We're all four going to my 8:30am baby appointment and we're all four going to spend at least the rest of the morning shopping for alternatives; probably for the little gal that's currently hogging the crib mattress on her floor. Baby will likely get the crib in her room while big sister scores with a princess toddler bed or something equally tacky but fun.
Here I am, in my darkest nesting moment with my gut hanging out, my messy room, dirty mirror and 3 out of 4 poles:

On the lighter side, I totally need to update my blog list! If you're another 365'er that reads but I don't have listed, please leave a comment and I'll add you tomorrow!!


  1. You have a lovely, fantastic, beautiful belly!! I hope tomorrow is a lovely day for you!

  2. I love this...such reality (and beee-u-teee-ful belly)! Have fun finding the princess bed and enjoy that little girl's smile. Hope tomorrow is a better day.
