kimberly bee

My husband and I got so lucky to have this incredible photographer, Kimberly Bee, booked to do our bellé to baby photographs. These are some of my favorites from her blog. Go see all of her photos they are all just gorgeous. The first shots on Kim's blog are my good friend Laura's wedding photos. Our "belly session is in just about a week, and we can't wait. :)

s is for salmon

Alaskan Salmon, yum. Hope to take the little guy up fishing in a few years.

r is for rabbit

Choose to go back to basics for R. Why not, he's cute. Seems like I've breezed through that last four or five letters in the alphabet. But the upcoming T is going to be tricky.

q is for quail

I love the way this quail came out. Think I'll have to make a few more as Christmas tree decor. Well, once I have a Christmas tree anyway.

m is for moose

I switched monkey for moose and snake for salmon to bring some wild animals I saw a lot of in my home state of Alaska. Love my little moose.

alphabet prints

Searching for ideas to put in the baby room months ago, first thing was an alphabet of some kind. Animals are always a great choice. Of course I found a bunch of these in different places months ago before I came up with doing the set of hand stitched animals. I just forgot to save the links. But here are some of the favorites I found with links to them.

Found this print at Little Baby Company. But also found it originally came from Petit Collage. Which also has some other great prints.

Something a little vintage looking. Found this vibrant print at byGraviela.
Found this beautiful print at Fawn & Forest and I think I've seen it many other times on other blogs here and there. Love that they used a unicorn for U.Just recently came across this one. From PushMePullYou Design.

l is for lion

Happy Friday. This little lion is only about 6 inches long while the little guy is over 14 now, and kicking all the time.

There is a jar of all the scraps from cutting out each animal. The plan for Thanksgiving weekend is to create a soft play pad out of all those unique scraps. Can't wait. But this weekend is the baby shower and I've got special projects ready for that. Stay Tuned.
