Better late than never -- Will's nursery

Back on my old blog (which is private) I shared all our plans for Will's nursery, but I never shared pictures of the final product. Well my wonderful Leslie (uh, the best photographer EVER) took some shots back in October and even though Will is 5 months older and we're now living in a different place, I thought, what the heck, I'll post them anyway!

I had asked Les to do some "an evening in the life of Will" kind of shots, so she captured us doing his bath and bedtime routine.

Getting ready for the tub -- I love how he's completely naked here but you can't see anything because his ROLLS are in the way! I miss those rolls of baby fat. He's getting leaner now as he's getting more and more exercise at playtime.

Suds-ing up!

He looks sweet on his Mama here. Breaks my heart with preciousness.

Now for lotions and powdies...

...and an attempt at taming Will's wild hair. (It's tame now and I miss the wildness!)

Daddy prepares the blanket for swaddling...

...while Mama gets in more kisses and cuddles.

Will always liked to look at his "friends" while Mama swaddled him. (And no, I did not lay him down to sleep in his crib with all those blankets!)

Will's room in the loft is not as bright and cheery as the one pictured here, and I plan to remedy that as soon as we make our next move. He'll even have to (hopefully VERY briefly) share a room with his little sister when she arrives! In any case, I'm so glad I had the chance to create a fun, boyish, yet sweet nursery for our Will. I can't wait to really put together a nursery for Lucy!

I love how happy he always looks--obviously because he's gettin' loved on by you my friend. He has the BEST smile!

And the nursery is divine.

Thank you, sweet SP!!! I will help you put yours together when the time comes (and it will). Kisses!

I just have to comment on Will's expression in the picture where he's in the tub and looking up at you - I have seen that exact look on your face before. It's usually followed by giggles. :) -Katie

I love that Will and I have some of the same expressions. Sometimes I look at him and can only see his Daddy! Then sometimes if I just focus on the shape of his eyes, I really do see myself, which I love. Is that vain? :)
