a portrait of my child once a week, every week, in 2013
Checking out the progress in his new room. I think he's worried that we aren't going to finish on time, and I can't blame him!
Work has been slow. We completed the tiny little closet and cleared most everything out of the room, but there is a ton left to get done; the old ceiling fan is currently stuck and only half dismantled, the walls need paint, the craigslisted dresser needs paint, the big boy bed needs to be constructed and painted too, shelves to hang, window shades to cut and hang, bench to build, and on and on...
I've put the list in order of priorities with the understanding that it just might be possible that not everything will be completed before the baby gets here. Little Smith won't be moving into this new room until the fall, but I really don't want to have too many big projects looming with a newborn- I know how that works! With my last pregnancy I got a manic burst of energy right about now and finished a lot on my own, I'm waiting for that to kick in and crossing my fingers that we can make it happen. I'm a person that really needs to have my space feel right to be balanced, so my center is just a little lopsided at the moment (and it's not just this beach-ball of a belly!).
