i'm alive...and nesting



I just got a call from one of my best and closest friends in Utah. I guess due to my recent respite from blogging, she became worried that something was seriously wrong. Well, in case anyone else might be wondering (or worrying), I'll assure you that things are just fine...in fact, they couldn't be better. Our little son will be born in three weeks, and with that event just around the corner, I've acutely experienced the nesting instinct. I always thought that tendency was reserved only for hormonal pregnant women, expecting their own biological children. But the past few weeks, John and I have proved that theory wrong through our late night organizing sessions, furniture rearranging parties, organizer purchasing outings, cupboard cleaning and clearing celebrations, and baseboard scrubbing bouts. We've even had to part ways with some of our favorite things...all in an effort to prepare a place for our sweet baby boy. During the process of moving our furniture, our wireless connection was disturbed, and we've been without the Internet for about two weeks. Every once in a while I can steal a signal from our neighbor (that's how I was able to do this post), but then, before I know it, it's gone again. We have a repairman coming out on Friday.
So no worries, I still love blogging...and I've missed it like crazy...and I have a lot to catch up on...and I'll be back in no time. :)

Thanks for your concern. Love you all.

That is so good to hear. The last time you were on blogging hiatus poor Ruby had be bitten by the dog! I was actually thinking that maybe your little guy decided to come a bit early and you were getting into the swing of things with that. I am SO excited for you guys. I can't wait to see pictures and hear all about him when he comes!

I'm so excited for your little guy to come! Nesting is actually probably way easier when you're NOT humongous, exhausted, and whaleish. I nested way more in theory than in reality with this one.

What an exciting time! I'm sure he can't wait to meet you!

I was JUST thinking about you on the bus ride to work this morning, Nicole. I was thinking "Gosh, I hope everything is alright with The Eaglestons. Nicole hasn't blogged in a while. I wonder how Ruby's healing. And I wonder if everything is alright with the baby."

THANKS FOR THE UPDATE!

I'm SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO THRILLED about this precious little addition to the Eagleson family. This baby boy is the luckiest little guy on the planet. I can't wait to see pictures and hear all about this blessed baby boy.

Love and Blessings from Utah!
