Master Bedroom

The master bedroom is finally done! This is the first room in the house to be completely finished, so I'm so excited! I finally feel like we're settling in. My goal was a good mix of mid-century modern and cozy. Walker loves playing with the drawers and curtains, so let the baby-proofing begin! Should have seen that one coming :)

Farmer Walker

I really  hate toys. Not all toys, just the typical ones. The ones made out of cheap plastic in colors that give you a migraine. They are just so gaudy and ugly and awful. I have always said when I had kids that I would only allow them to have beautiful, handcrafted organic untreated wooden toys that match our house, of course. I still want to do that. But then Tom brings this thing home and Walker LOVES it. What am I supposed to do?! Just look at his face!! It has provided at least two hours of entertainment each day since a week ago when Tom set it up (bless you Fisher Price). I just want to message all these hipster SAHMs on Instagram to ask "WHERE ARE YOUR TOYS". I know they're hiding them somewhere in those perfectly decorated mid-century nurseries and eco-friendly toy boxes. Am I the only one who has to suffer through this daily trauma to my eyeballs?? And tell me this, how come Fisher Price doesn't make toys in neutral color pallets, huh? Christmas, come fast, so I can replace toxic farmland with Arctic Rocker! In the meantime I'll enjoy the smiles.

I am beyond thankful for these beautiful photos that will be the only ones I ever have holding both of my babies. We long for the day when we will be reunited as a family, away from this world of pain. Through this confusing and excruciating time, we will hold on to the joy and blessings He has given us in His grace, in each other and in our precious Walker. I am so thankful for the time we had as the four of us, even if it was short. Given the chance to rewrite history, I would with a full heart accept the gift of your 12 beautiful weeks of life rather than avoid the pain and never know you. My arms will ache to hold you until we are together again. I am so proud of you and the vital purpose you have on your side of Heaven. We will see you soon sweet little one.
