I’m now officially 4 days overdue. It is crazy how about a week before the due date time slows down quite a bit, then stops on the due date and at this point I’m convinced we are going backwards. I am trying to maintain a balance of continuing to be physically active and resting/relaxing but I’m not sure there is anything left to clean in my house! Because we have a natural birth plan, the plan is to go to 42 weeks before an induction. We’re praying that I’ll labor naturally before this- please pray with us! So until our little guy comes along, here are some pics of his little room. The shot on the left what we affectionately call Palmer puppy (Palmer is our dog’s name), and we think this guy looks like our real Palmer and adds a quirky element the room.
So when it came to a theme we really didn’t want to go with anything specific. I want the room to be easily transition-able to a girls room if we have a girl after this one… I found the art over the crib here and i loved the earthy feel, so that is the direction we went in. B/c we love to travel, particularly overseas, I thought a loose world theme would be appropriate. We have some random animals throughout the room that you’d find in many different parts of the world, including our Palmer puppy and the camel pillow on the glider… Ok, I’ll stop explaining and let you see for yourself:).
The bookshelves on the left are actually rain gutters made by my oh so talented husband & the toy box below was mine when i was a little girl.
Amy and I have been best friends for about 10 years now…. We met in college and became roommates soon after and the rest is history. We have done so much together and this blog post would get really long if i started sharing stories, so I’ll just say that Amy is one of the most special people in my life and I am so happy she has found such an incredible man as Chris.
I shot their engagement session in their town of Wake Forest, NC. We got started at the deli where Chris worked when they met and Amy visited often (i wonder why;). Then, we found this amazing abandoned loading dock with lots of color and light that I could probably shoot at 20 more times! After that we stopped by the park where these 2 love birds got engaged. Enjoy!
What you don’t see here is the 20 times Chris & Amy had to move for people to walk out the door, but I’m so excited we got these shots!
Amy & Chris, I love you both so much and I can’t wait until your wedding!
