7 Months and Totally Nesting

What does the term nesting even mean?  I read in all these parenting catalogs about how you start to nest in your third trimester.  I finally looked it up and here is what wikipedia taught me:

Nesting instinct refers to an instinct or urge in pregnant animals to prepare a home for the upcoming newborn(s). It is found in a variety of animals (both mammals and birds) including humans.

Oh ok!  So like that feeling of wanting to have everything in the house completely ready in the next 8 weeks.  Yep.  I have that right now.  Big time.  And because of the whole being huge and pregnant thing, Dave gets to do most of the preparations right now that include bending or lifting.

Last night he put together one of the cribs in the babies' room:

He did a pretty amazing job!  So that's one crib down, one to go.  Oh and paint the room, put together the bedding, get a dresser/changing table, wash all the baby clothes, and make drapes.  Not too many things at all...right? 

Updated baby photos of baby faces, looking more and more like babies every day. :)

Our Son (or as the ultrasound tech lovingly calls him, "Baby A")
You can see him sucking on his bottom lip.

Our Daughter (a.k.a. "Baby B")
Her arm is across her face - which by the way is exactly how I like to sleep.

It kind of blows my mind that you'll have two cribs! And two carseats. and two BABIES.

Sorry that we missed the NYE party the other night - we went to dinner and then crashed out early.
