Adoption Nesting

I didn't think it would happen to be honest. I didn't get all that nest-y when I was pregnant last time so I figured this time around I wouldn't feel it at all and yet, here I am...

Googling how to have rugs professionally cleaned, wondering if I need to dust every light fixture, and trying to figure out how to ask our cleaning lady to only use our all natural cleaning supplies without offending her.

Also resisting the urge to BUY ALL THE THINGS because adoptions aren't final till they are final and there's a very tricky balance between feeling adequately prepared (which I still don't) and also not having more things than we actually need in the first month because if we come home without a baby to a house full of baby things, that will just add to the heartache.

I decided to make a baby registry today. I'm not sure if anyone will even ask for it. I'm not sure if we'll have a shower. In fact, I'm not even sure how that works with adoption since nothing is final till you are coming home with a baby. But at least it gives me an outlet for organizing all my lists, thoughts, and adorable tiny knit rompers I've found.
