The title is a little misleading as we don't actually have a nursery. We never used one with Minnie as she slept in our room (mostly in our bed) for about 2 years. We, personally, cannot imagine coming home from hospital and putting our tiny, newborn baby in another room in the house. For us, we all sleep better in the one room. The baby is close for feeding and changing and the incessant checking on. Steve says he probably gets more sleep with the baby in our room as I am not jumping up and in and out every five minutes.
So the 'nursery' is at the end of our bedroom. The baby will sleep in Minnie's bassinet and then her cot. And I am sure some times in our bed... I can easily move the bassinet next to my side of the bed as we are lucky enough to have a large bedroom.
cutesy, cutesy nursery decor, I think it looks great.
Wilbur, from 'Charlotte's Web' is making another appearance. Minnie is a bit concerned that Charlotte is missing so I think I need to pop back into the sewing room.
So everything is ready. We are just waiting for one more 'guest' to arrive...

The waiting is almost too much. Having no control over when this baby will arrive is hard - letting go and 'going with the flow' is not easy for me. I can be impatient. I am being impatient.
I need a sign that it will be soon. I know that it will have to be sometime in the next 2 or so weeks. But 2 weeks is a long time when you are overdue and overwrought. 2 weeks is a long time in a pregnancy, in politics and when waiting for a lover to come home. 2 weeks can be a long, long time.
I know that when the baby finally arrives, none of this will matter.
