Weekends are too short!

This weekend we finally got busy on little man's room. I washed all his hand me downs and gifts and got them organized in his closet and dresser. I think I knew he had a lot of clothes but I think I underestimated it.

I was planning on washing and hanging up all his clothes. So I didn't organize things before I washed them. As the first two loads of laundry were finished I quickly realized that I didn't have enough hangers for all his clothes. I could have bought more hangers but I was thinking we would end up with a lot of empty hangers once we started putting stuff away that didn't fit him.

So I washed all his clothes so I could know how much stuff he had in each size. We only had enough hangers and drawer space for newborn, 0-3, and 3 month stuff. He has a ton of clothes for bigger sizes in a storage bin all organized so when he is out of the newborn stuff I can hang up the 3-6 months stuff and be ready for him to get bigger!

You know how baby clothes can make your ovaries ache and give you baby fever. Well when you are pregnant with the baby it makes your arms ache to hold him and dress him.

Look what his Daddy built him!

I can't tell you what a pain in the butt this dresser was. I wrote a long detailed story about what a pain it was and how awesome Babies R Us is and stupid blogger lost it. Blogger and I are in a fight right now. I'm not writing it again. Summary is Babies R Us rocks! If you haven't already bought furniture buy the stuff that comes already assembled. We didn't know most of their stuff does!

Kid has plenty of pjs. We can't wait to meet him!
