Remember that one time when I complained about how my baby's room was a complete disaster and that I only had like 3 months left to get it ready? Ha! If only I had known... A few weeks ago, I was in the baby's room and noticed that the ceiling looked like it had water damage, so we had an A/C guy come out and yep, we had a clog somewhere and it had been slowly leaking all over the ceiling. OF COURSE the A/C unit is right above the baby's room. Of course it is.

So lucky Josh got to tear down part of the ceiling in order to remove the water damage. We had a mold guy come over and luckily there wasn't any significant mold damage that needed to be removed.

Here's Josh cutting away at the ceiling. At first we thought the hole was only going to be this big:

And then Josh kept on finding more water damage, so it ended up a lot bigger than we had planned. Oh well, at least we're getting it all out.

Here's the huge pile of insulation on the floor. We didn't really think this part through as much as we should had. We needed to remove the insulation just in case there was mold in it, but we hadn't expected there to be quite so much.

But don't worry, it cleaned right up thanks to the world greatest vacuum!:

I don't know if I've talked about how wonderful our Dyson Animal is, but seriously. It's amazing. Totally worth the money!

I tried to cover all the baby stuff with plastic, but it didn't do much good. So now I get to wash all the crib sheets and baby clothes again.

Poor Josh hasn't had a weekend off in months now. And he definitely won't have one once the baby comes :) It's just one project after another. Sigh. I think we've decided our next house will be an apartment. So much easier! :)

Oh yeah. Good thing we only have SIX WEEKS to take care of all of this!

Poor Josh! Poor you, having to clean it all up. YUCK! Can't wait to meet the baby though...

Perfect timing for this to happen. I guess it's better now than after Baby King comes.
