I am currently deep in the throngs of nesting. My "Nesting To Do" list is filled with small to large home projects I would like to get done before this baby gets here. Many of them are somewhat unnecessary, but for some reason I feel like I HAVE to get them done NOW (i.e. re-paint my bedroom a better color). But, apparently I am not the only one nesting in this house. See for yourself...

Ugly little things aren't they? Ugly in a kinda cute way. Something interesting my bird nerd husband told me - the momma bird lays an egg every other day, then after sitting for 22 days, a baby hatches once every other day (in the order they were laid). Wouldn't it be nice only being pregnant for only 22 days? Then again, maybe not. If that were the case, I wouldn't have time to get everything done.

whew! that is quite the to-do list. i hope you get some of it done! (please take pics if you do the chalkboard paint, if we weren't renting i would so be all over that.)

dude, just sell those stinky birds. without reading what you wrote beneath, i seriously thought they were raw chicken cutlets and i was like "i thought birds were vegetarians."

Emily Ruth said...

yes, those baby birds are hideously ugly, and I also thought that they were chicken cutlets at first glance.
Good luck with your to-do list!

Shannon said...

Yuck! Baby birds sound like that would be really cute, but alas, those are scary. That's quite the to-do list. Good luck! I like the one of having someone else deep clean your house. I want that on my list. :) Also if you come up with any awesome 30th birthday party planning tips let me know. I have one to do this year too.

Cute blog...and one day tjose chicken cutlets will be cute too!

Well what can I do to help??? You know how much I love organizing and your dad is quite the painter.

THANKS.

Maybe it's because I can't see those birds really well, but they look so cute! And the color is actually really cool! I hope you let Ryan do all of the cleaning! You relax mama!
