showered...

she kept saying it wasn't going to be any big deal... just a little get together to celebrate baby louie. well i should have known that ann does not know how to do anything little. she went all out and it was darling. and i loved spending the evening with so many of my dear friends... i am a lucky, lucky girl.

and louie was completely spoiled too.

here are some (bad) photos of the night... hilarious that they are all of the food, i didn't get one of the guests... i'm lame.











and thank you so much for all of the kind comments on the nursery... they have made me so, so happy!

also, baby boy will be here on wed. can you believe it?!?
i cant wait to meet my boy. say a prayer and send good thoughts my way, please?!

baby louie's nursery is complete...

his name will be lewis and this is his room.

we all come into this room about 15 times a day, i don't know why but it really has a magical feeling in there, and the smell... it already smells like baby. the clothes are washed and folded, blankets are ready for swaddling and the rocker is ready to be put to use.

i am so excited about the time baby boy and i will share is his little room :)

here are some photos...

the rug is the first thing i purchased for the room from anthropologie (i think it was called the artist's rug) i love the colors and the unusual shape, plus it is giant. i worked everything around it.


the rocker was a thrift store find i had professionally reupholstered. it is so, so comfy.


my mom made the gorgeous drapes and the crib and bassinet are the BAM collection by argington.


probably my favorite thing in the room is this giant sized poster i had made from an old photograph of my grandpa and his siblings from the 1920's. (grandpa is on the far right and one of my favorite people i will ever know) the changer was the girls, we painted and lined with faux bois contact paper.


the built-ins are stock full of baby essentials (onesies, gowns, booties and swaddle blankets)


a close up :)


the drawers are in mint condition and were a total steal for $60 on ksl, the paper mache goat head is from anthropologie.


i love the gorgeous bedding my mom made, the mobile is blabla kids.


the paint color is a light gray by benjamin moore called stonington gray (i love it)

i cant believe he will be here so, so soon. we are still working on the girls rooms (they are so close) i will share the finished rooms soon!

let's pretend...

that it's may 31st and that i am writing this on my dear and sweet little girls actual birthday, okay?

okay. :)

estee is 6 and i cant even believe it. even though i was feeling really pregnant and yuck on her big day i still managed to make it pretty special for her (i hope) no big party, but having my parents here and a trip to build a bear seemed to do the trick.

i know you already know how in love with this little girl i am... but i think having baby #3 making his arrival so close (12 days!) i cant help but look at #1 and be amazed by what our relationship has become. she is so bright and funny and beautiful and really, i just love being around her (don't get me started on how hard 1st grade is going to be on me!)

and it's all happened so fast. sigh.

it's a really good thing i'll have a little tiny babe to cuddle and love on in just a couple of weeks... :)

love you so, so much estee bo bestee.
