Annie’s Nursery

I’m sure it surprised no one that we went with a nautical theme for our baby’s room. 😉 I not-so-secretly want Annie to become a marine biologist. Lol.

Crib: Amazon // Curtains: Kohl’s // Gold lamp: Land of Nod // Light fixture: West Elm (gold starfish by Lisa Boswell😉) // Gold coral prints: Etsy // Glider & ottoman: Babies R Us // Blush pillow cover: Etsy // Changing table: IKEA // Gold knobs: Land of Nod // Gold mirror: Hobby Lobby // Crib sheets: Carousel Designs // Sailboat: Built by my grandpa 😊

The nursery is far cuter with her in it. 😉

These. Two. 😍

Andrew and I may or may not have wept like basket cases after I made this video. 😭❤️

We are so obsessed with her. ☺️💕


Annie Rae

Forgive me for the delay, but we’ve been slightly busy falling in love with this little thing. 😉


Annie Rae Boswell

Born October 16th at 8:12 am // 6 pounds, 14 ounces // 19 inches long

We are so. smitten. ❤️ Everything went as smooth as could be, and we are all home feeling great. God is so good!

I completely underestimated how obsessed I would be with her. 💕

As if he wasn’t attractive enough already…😉😍

The photo above was probably my favorite 15 minutes of life. All the visitors and nurses had gone, and it was just the three of us snuggling on my hospital bed. My heart was exploding and desperately trying to soak up every second. I wish I could go back to this moment over and over! ❤️

Good news – Jack absolutely adores her. ❤️ He constantly wants to be licking her (we’re trying to keep his tongue away from her face as much as possible, don’t worry lol), and he whines or howls sadly when she cries. They are going to be the cutest BFFs.

I’ll post more soon about our hospital stay, birth story, first week home, etc. And obviously there are about 8,000 more photos to come. 😉


The Final Countdown

One week from today, you’ll be in my arms.

You’ll get to see your Daddy’s handsome face for the first time.

You’ll get to meet your grandparents, your aunts, your uncles, your cousins – all the people who have been praying for you and loving you so well already.

One week from today, I imagine the Lord will be smiling as the little family He’s creating begins. ❤️

Enormous thanks to Kristi Cormack and Alyssa Ulrich for taking these photos for us. (And to Andrew, who took the last three pictures and graciously endures all my photoshoots. 😉)
