Babbling no. 2

Hey everyone! Just wanted to give you a little house/life update this week (also know the pic below has nothing to do with the post, I just love how huge my monstera has gotten, haha)!

We had Finch custom painting over almost all of last week to paint our shiplapped ceilings (in the den and nursery) and to do some touch-ups around the house since we had a drywaller come out before Christmas to patch our wall cold air returns, attic fan and other random holes around here (I forgot to update you guys on that last week). Before anyone asks, we moved our wall cold air returns to our baseboards because I hated the sight of vents on the walls (they were always in the most impractical spots). As for the attic fan, I felt it was an eyesore because it was right at the top of the stairs on the second floor and it was the first thing you saw when you looked up (it had to go!). 

We then spent most of the weekend cleaning and tidying everything up. We put the rug down that we had bought long ago for the den so it feels cozier in there and I organized the bookshelves a bit (not perfect, but it looks better)... things are starting to come together a bit more which feels nice. We're still trying to figure out window treatments since the baby will be here soon and we'll need a nice dark, room for him to sleep in, plus it'll make the rooms look a bit more finished. 

I have to admit, I was having a bit of anxiety the other night thinking about all of the stuff I still need to do before baby boy comes. I know it's silly but I have it in my head that he'll be here early and I'm just like oh my gosh, I need a car seat! I need to wash his clothes! Find a pediatrician! Make a bunch of freezer meals! Make a birth plan and a plan for Georgie! So instead of really freaking out about it, I did what I do best... I made a list and have been crossing things off and getting stuff done. And you guys, I've been washing baby clothes all day and have been freaking out about how cute and tiny they are! I can't even handle it! Oh, I also want to say thanks again for those of you on instagram who helped with car seat suggestions. We ended up going with the Nuna Pipa (which funny enough is the one I was going to buy, but I wanted valid reviews of its' greatness, haha). 

Also, one more thing about baby boy. If you're curious if we have a name picked out, we actually have two that we really like. The grandma's are already calling him the fan favorite (it's in the lead anyway), but I don't want to reveal it until he's here. Any guesses?
