Last month, my life changed forever. I gave birth to our first born–a son we named Crosby. Labor and delivery was amazing. It went as well as I had prayed it would and I know God was with my husband and I during that time. Speaking of my husband–he was the best support person I could have asked for, and is more so even now as we are learning to be parents together.
A week after Crosby was born, we had the pleasure of Lindsey of ELKAphoto come to our home and capture photos of our little one, my husband and I. Lindsey was so good with Crosby and definitely patient! 🙂
We think he’s pretty great!
And my hubby is a natural with a newborn!
Look at that precious face.
This is one of my faves.
I’m still amazed that he’s here and I’m a mom!
I could stare at him for days with all his funny faces and cute noises.
He did well testing out his crib for the first time.
He looks so peaceful!
I just couldn’t resist this crocheted set–a hard hat, work boots and pants that I found on Etsy…
Unfortunately, Crosby wasn’t feeling it! I tried to tell him Daddy has a hard hat and work boots too, but he didn’t care. 🙂
We call this “The Moses” 🙂
He actually hated being on his back and in the basket, but somehow Lindsey worked her magic and got another amazing photo.
One of his favorite places to be–Daddy’s arms.
Don’t you just want to cuddle him?
Our happy family 🙂
I love the lighting of this photo. Crosby was ready to call it a day and get back to eating and sleeping.
And here’s a few shots of the nursery…
I was so inspired by out gender reveal party decor that we decided to make our own ceiling mobile using paper lanterns and a paper star. Pretty sure my husband was annoyed with me when I was guiding him on hanging each one–but it was so worth it, right? He also painted the entire room, including the stripes. God bless him. He did such an amazing job!
We also made our own wall art. We paid for the high resolution files from Etsy and then had a local sign designer, DB Signs & Designs, print them on banner material. My hubby pulled them over stretch bars and stapled them. They were about a quarter of the price of ordering them already made on Etsy!
Our little shelf is perfect to display the books from our baby shower, some toys and decorative pieces.
