Tour de Baby Room

I know, I know, it's been all things baby lately. But, we're about to have a baby, so there's that. 
We are so stinkin' excited for this kid and since his room has been finished, we kind of just hang out there now. We just sit and read, or sometimes I go in there and nap, or sit in the rocking chair when I'm on the phone. We wanted it to be a comfy cozy room for Eddy and also for guests who stay with us. 

All to say, here are some pictures of this sweet little baby's room. Hope you enjoy!


Mom already called me about the bunting hanging on the bed. Thanks Ma, I know you're just watchin' out for your grand baby. Will be removed in due time. 
The last map to be filled on our map wall up there will be a map of Alaska. But not just any map of Alaska. PK and his friend Jason got dropped off in the middle of nowhere for like 10 days and had to find their way to some gravel piece of land where a plane picked them up. Kind of amazing. So for our wedding, Jason made a map of their route which will go perfectly on this wall.
The map up top is some old school map of London. I can't even remember where I found it. But the picture underneath it is really significant. It's Olander Park in Sylvania, Ohio where PK grew up. He and his dad would run and fish and made lots of memories there. It is a sweet way to remember PK's dad and the amazing man that he was. It's a memory of where his Grandpa Edward said goodbye in a new room where little Edward will say hello.
 The 'you are loved' banner from my friend Andrea, the 'E' canvas from Kiersten are handmade gifts we received that are so darn cute! These suitcases are good for storage as well as holding all the books Eddy received from the ladies that already love him so. 
I'm sure we will spend countless hours here in the little rocking nook.
In love with this sweet bunny and we hope Eddy loves it too.

Guest nook.

This is the sweetest little baby book from some of our faves, Sean and Hilary. 
We've begun to fill it out and it's been so fun!


Here goes nothin' with the cloth diapering! Eddy snuck in the pic and wanted to say hi.
We thought go big or go home, let's do cloth wipes too. 
Oh, hey Sophie.

Oh, hey picture of Abe Lincoln that everyone is creeped out by that I found for $2 at the thrift store. 

Oh, hey Ruthie. How adorable is she?! Eeeeeeee! Eddy's room is Ruthie approved! 

Oh baby Eddy, we are so excited to meet you! Three more days until your due date! You seem pretty snug where you are. Incredibly wiggly, yet content. So, I'm just gonna throw this out there as an idea: it would be fine with me if you decide to venture into the world anytime now, really. I wouldn't mind. No rush. Just a thought. We love you and are so honored to be your parents. See you soon!

(Eddy, it's cool if you call me mom. Less syllables)

Maternity photos.

As of today, we have six more days until baby Eddy is due! Eeeeee! Aaaaaah! All the emotions all at once! Since time's-a-tickin' our dear friend Sara wanted to make sure we got some photos before this lil' guy makes his grand appearance. Side note: The people in our neighborhood don't think Eddy is going to be a "lil guy" at all. Multiple random people have guessed that he is 9 lbs. Hey, at least they're not guessing twins anymore?? I'll take what I can get. Oh Uptown.

Here are some of our favorites from the photo shoot:




A big special thank you to Sara for taking these pictures. I love them and am so grateful to have them to remember this sweet time.
