Is it still called nesting if you are six months pregnant?

I really don't know, but I'm sure that is what I have been doing the last few weeks/months. I finally have a little bit of energy so I have been trying to focus on getting things ready for the baby. I still don't understand how I can be so unprepared to bring home a newborn when we had the twins only three and a half years ago. Where did all that stuff go, why can't I remember what it takes to care for an infant??

Well whatever kind of mental block I have going on, I have been busy. My sister in-law was cool enough to show me how to make these rad nursing covers, "Hooter Hiders" if you will. So I made two, as babies are a wee bit messy. I sewed a little burp cloth into the corner of one, as I forgot with the first one and was not about to rip out the stitches.

Here you can see some of my other handy work. I recently purchased a Food Saver and I have prepared about 40ish meals to use after the baby is born. I've made three kinds of pasta sauce, creamy pesto, marinara and a creamy red sauce. I have lasagna, manicotti, chicken enchiladas, cream of broccoli soup, fajitas stuffs (chicken, peppers and onion), french bread pizza, rolls, and cookie dough. I also have some other stuff like raviolis and such that I didn't make but portioned out for easy meal preparation.

Unfortunately for my family the only cooking I have been doing of late is the food saved freezer kind, and now that my outside freezer can hold no more I'm kinda pooped out on the whole cooking thing altogether. I'll have to work on that.

I am also waiting for some metal rings to come in the mail so I can make a baby sling. I'm so excited to use one, and with no guilt because there will be only one baby to hold. If the sling works out, and is semi-decent looking I will post pictures.
