Nesting Take Three

Nesting is in full force here at the Johnson house! I've got a honey-do list for Scott a mile long and over the weekend he knocked out about 85% of it. I've got a few more things to tackle myself but by this time next week we should be 100% done with everything. I love nesting. It feels so good. I always take the opportunity to tackle things that have absolutely nothing to do with having a new baby but it just feels like it needs to be done every time I bring a baby home. Like cleaning and organizing my garage and pantry. Every baby, every time.
We managed to cross some big items off our list this weekend like purchasing and installing a new car seat for Campbell. I cannot even begin to tell you what an ordeal that has been for us. Getting three to fit across my back seat, installed correctly, has been a challenge. Scott and I have researched car seats A LOT the last few weeks and we have learned soooooo many things we didn't know. And we thought we were very knowledgeable about car seat safety. Did you know 75% of people don't have their car seats installed properly or their child is in the incorrect car seat? It's crazy. And scary. So that made the search for the best car seat for our car and kids even more challenging BUT we figured it out. Now the only problem is that Bennett wants a new car seat too. Because we are in that phase of life where we can't do something for Campbell and not Bennett or Lord help us. So needless to say I'm ordering Bennett the same car seat this evening which honestly isn't a big deal because I was wanting to get him a new one anyway. We have Maxi Cosi's now and I loved them when the kids were younger but as they've gotten older I despise them. We got the Diono Radian 3 RXT. I haven't used them yet so can't really give my opinion on it but for that short amount of time that we had it installed in my car I thought it was great. It's super narrow (which was my number 1 priority, after safety, obviously) and sleek and I'm just really pleased with it. Plus, Bennett showed us he's capable of buckling himself into it which is a game changer and will make life for this momma soooo much easier.
Aside from all of the nesting going on, Scott and I were able to take one final peek at our little boy before he comes out to meet us. I had my ultrasound today. I'll share more tomorrow for my 35 week update but everything looked great! We really didn't get a good look at him because he was sooooo squished in there. I knew he would be but I was hoping to get a little bit of an idea of what he'd look like but definitely no. I could hardly tell what anything was honestly. We planned on doing a 4D ultrasound but time got away from us and before we knew it, it was too late #thirdbabyproblems. So I really have no clue what this little guy is going to look like. It's kind of fun not knowing though and I can't wait to see that little face. I don't think it will be too much longer!!
