the last day

today is my last day of work.  it is the strangest feeling that i can't even begin to describe.

* * * * * *

this baby should be waiting on my doorstep for me tonight.  i can't wait to play with it.

* * * * * *

i can't get dimply butt cheeks and squishy thighs out of my mind.

* * * * * *

here is our nursery.  simple & plain.  

* * * * * * 

i've been thinking about this quote by john wooden a lot lately:

Talent is God-given. Be humble.
Fame is man-given. Be grateful.
Conceit is self-given. Be careful.

That nursery looks so calm and serene. I love how you've decorated it. AND I am SOOOO happy you got that lens! And I also might be a bit jealous. :)

Can't wait for Lenny to join the fam.

I love that crib!! You're already to go. I was so excited to see your post I thought you may have had him already. I seriously can't wait to meet our kid and I know you've got to feel the same way. Good luck!!! I can't wait to see the pictures. (And lets be honest every newborn looks like a little alien, but by dang it'll my little alien and she'll be cute- as will your little guy.)

The nursery is beautiful. Very peaceful. Let's hope he gets LOTS of sleep in there, right? At least at night, anyway. :)

The lens...ahhh. I'm drooling. I can't wait to see the pictures you take with that guy.

Great quote.

I can't wait to see the little man. I really like the nursery and the modern feel to it.

Cute Cute! Riley says there are too many sharp corners for baby to hit his head on. Haha He would.

congrats on baby boy! Leaving work is a weird feeling, but it's great and you will be a great mom, I'm sure.
p.s. I think about dimply cheeks and squishy thighs but mostly only when I look in the mirror:)
Good luck!
