In the absence of anything more interesting to talk about, I thought I’d show you some pictures. We just got a new camera from Stephen’s parents, so I’ve been having fun trying to tap into my inner photographer. The camera is a handy pocket-sized Nikon S220…I don’t really know much else about it, except that it is cute and purple, and that it takes pictures that are more than sufficient to keep up with my photography skills.
TH’s room is coming along nicely, and I thought I’d let you see the progress.
My mom has been awesome to make all sorts of wonderful things for this room, including the curtains and the quilt that is on the end of the bed. Here’s a bigger view:
Leslie helped me one afternoon with the cute art on the wall over the bed, which are scenes from “Babar and His Family” glued onto canvas squares.
Here’s the other side of the room:
The bedding is more of my mom’s handiwork, as is the cute pillow which coodinates with the quilt. I love the poster above the bed, which says “Good Stories Make Great Friends.” Aunt Laurashmaura says this is a sure sign that I’ll be raising a nerd, but what can I say…it’s true! I’d love to have another nerd in the family, and good books DO make great friends! The red rocker was that awesome find from the garage sale in the Woodlands way back in March, and I love the way it blends right in. The crib is vintage… the one that all of my sibs and I slept in. I know that all the latest baby advice says not to use old cribs, but I’m risking it. I figure, if Alan couldn’t find a way to kill himself in this bed, it must be pretty safe, as no child of mine could possibly be more accident prone OR daredevilish than him.
Here is one of the first members of Turniphead’s stuffed animal collection, affectionately named Stephen the Hater Bear. He is currently modeling one of TH’s cute FuzziBunz diapers while guarding the rest of the stash.
This was from the surprise shower that my Temple book club threw earlier this month. We got some great stuff from our gift registry, as well as several very cute kid books! Part of the fun surprise was that my sisters were all there, even Laura and Katy from out of town!
And, last but not least…the latest pic of the Bump, just for Carolyn:
I had no idea I was looking so POINTY until I saw this picture! This is the least weird of all of the pictures I made Stephen take. You can notice the belly looking a little more round and normal in the first picture of this post.
