When I found out we were having another boy and I wouldn’t be able to decorate a nursery for a baby girl, I knew I still wanted to change up the decor in the room to make it special for our new baby. I decided on a “vintage camping”/”North Woods” theme and it’s been so fun putting it together! We kept all of the same furniture (didn’t even move it) and even some of the decorations that Emmett had that fit with the new theme (our fish and fishing lures).
The gallery wall above the changing table has some special pictures of my friend Laura’s cabin that I used to go to with my girlfriends in middle school and high school. I also love those bunny pictures!
Take a look at the newest addition to the nursery that just arrived from Minnesota this week:
My Grandma Barb made our baby boy the most adorable, funny, cute quilt I have ever seen! One side is covered in thermoses and the other is a fabric called “Burly Beavers”!
I mean, have you ever seen anything so cute?? It is SO SOFT too! I can’t wait to lay my little baby on it!
After 19 months with Emmett, I realized I really hate hanging up all of his clothes on hangers after I wash them. So time consuming! So for this baby, I decided on hanging shelves. I already love it so much better.
He’s already got a closet full of Emmett’s cute hand-me-downs (but that hasn’t stopped me from doing some shopping haha).
Well baby boy, your room is all ready for you!
This picture was taken at my doctors appointment this morning. They think he currently weighs 7lbs 10oz and his head is measuring at 42 weeks! Thank god it’s going to be a c-section!
See you on the outside in 2 weeks baby! ❤️❤️
I forgot to mention the other day that I was chosen to be a contributor to Charleston Moms Blog! I’m really excited to be apart of a great group of women writing about all things motherhood and Charleston. I’ll have one post a month published and here is my first one! With two boys under 2 soon I’m guessing I’ll have a lot of material to work with 🙂
Yesterday was our 6th wedding anniversary. I didn’t write about it because:
A: We have a lot going on
B: I thought I was maybe in labor (Turns out it was just some bad cheesecake I ate. I think.)
Amongst home repairs and getting ready for the baby, Ryan and I did sneak out Saturday night for dinner at Spero (definitely recommended) and drinks at the Vendue rooftop bar.
Every year on our anniversary, we take a picture to put in our anniversary photo album. I thought it would be a cool way to document how we change over the years. Here are our first 6 (including our cover photo – a picture of us hiking in the Black Forest in Germany on our honeymoon!)
We tried to take this year’s photo on our front porch. Here’s how it turned out: squinty eyes, red faces, greasy hair, but the cutest little photo bomber in the background! Haha!
There’s always next year for better pictures and more romantic anniversary dates 🙂 We’re in this for the long haul.
How you just fell asleep at the counter eating PB&J and when I tucked you into your bed, you curled up like this and my heart melted:
Ryan and his buddies went shrimping last night (from 5pm to 4am!) in the Charleston Harbor and got a huge haul of delicious shrimp!
To celebrate, we had a Lowcountry Boil tonight with his fellow shrimp hunters (our neighbors Jimmy and Paul) and their wives in our backyard.
(The recipe that we used from our neighbor Mandi)
If we’re being honest, I didn’t eat any. Those shrimp eyeballs staring back at me we’re not doing my pregnant tummy and favors, haha. But everyone else loved it! Plus it’s just fun to do. Have I meantioned how much I love living here??
How obsessed you are with oranges that you took a nap with one…
(He probably eats at least 3 oranges a day)
