People told me to expect the nesting urge to kick in any day now. Well, it's kicked in. Hard. Almost as hard as the baby has been kicking.

Matthew has been amazing - completely unsurprising. He's been super-dad-in-training since day one. We hardly had any time to ourselves this weekend and yet today he managed to prime and paint the crib my cousin gave us, assemble it, put it in place and then get all misty with me over the book my sister in law gave us for the baby.

Since we're a typical Brooklyn couple, living in a one bedroom apartment, we need to make our bedroom a combination bedroom/nursery. We've been focusing a lot on how to make the room work for both halves of this arrangement. The baby needs a safe, comfy, calming place and so do we.

Something else he did this past week is in the photo above. While we were in Paris on our honeymoon in April I took a photo of a very old clock in a park we'd never been to before. Matthew pumped up some of the colors in Photoshop and had it printed. It's huge! It's huge and it looks amazing over our new bed. Not only is he prepping the baby's side of the room, he's making sure our bedroom is a true sanctuary for us. I don't know how I could be luckier.
