Let the countdown begin!

I'm sure you guys are tired of hearing me talk about baby stuff and posting baby related photos all the time, but you had better get used to it! Baby will be here very soon!

the end is coming

The above photo was taken at 38wks 0dys. At 37wks Baby measured 9lbs - that's 2lbs more than the average. We had a talk with the Doc last Friday and if I don't go into labor this week (and we don't really think I will), Baby will be born via c-section on September 2nd.

This past weekend, Eric and I worked on the nursery to get everything ready.

Here is a view of the closet and bookshelf:

This is a closeup of the closet and the beautiful mermaid print my Aunt, Tracy, got from JooJoo on Etsy.


And here is the corner of the dresser that will be serving as a changing table as well. The ABC print is from StephanieFizer - also on Etsy.

We've only got about 10 days left before Baby arrives!!

H & Fade

Weekly Words Challenge 2009

H is for Hold

I helped shoot a wedding this past Saturday and this is one of the shots I got. I love the was the groom is holding on to the bride.



I took this just after dark the other night. I like how the colors fade together.
The single line of light is from a street lamp and the others are from a lighted umbrella in my neighbor's yard.

Bronson is BJ and Amy's puppy. Well, he's not exactly a puppy - more like a big chocolate lab. But he is as sweet as can be.

I love this portrait of Sarah from the shower .

I converted the photo to black and white, cropped a little, and upped the contrast.

Baby Shower

We had my baby shower yesterday! I had a lot of fun and Baby got a lot of stuff!

These were the shower gifts - to the theme of Niki's Cookin' a Baby!

There was a donut cake instead of a traditional cake. Much yummier, in my opinion!

mmm... donuts...

One of the games was for me to choose a favorite onesie painted by the guests.
Those of you that know me already know the onesie I chose. For those of you that don't, refer back to this post.


I snapped some portraits of a few of the guests.







Gifts - Woot!


The animals did surprisingly well with so many people in and out of the house.
Here, Athena hides beneath the gift table.
