Photo of the Week No. 34: Baby M in the Making

August 22, 2018

This Photo of the Week centers on the cutest little piece of decor from my sister’s baby shower this past weekend. As you may remember, Ayesha and her husband Skylar are expecting a baby boy. My sister took care of the decorations, and I was so impressed by the M that she decoupaged with a world map background. (P.S. I have a feeling that some of her other creations just may appear as future Photos of the Week here). What does the M stand for, you may be wondering? It’s for my future nephew’s name, Marquis (the “s” is silent, as is with the French pronunciation). I can already tell he’s gonna be bougie! LOL. Totally kidding! I’m so excited to welcome him. He’ll be here before we know it!

Photo of the Week No. 22: “A Peanut in the Belly”

May 29, 2018

This Photo of the Week was captured this past weekend at my good friend Amber’s baby shower, and she looked gorgeous — big baby belly and all! She and her husband AJ are expecting a baby girl, Daryn. I got to feel my honorary niece moving around in her mom’s stomach, which was the coolest yet weirdest feeling. There’s legit a baby in Amber’s stomach! And she’ll be here real soon. This image was taken when Amber picked the winning onesie from the little garden of onesies that guests decorated. There’s actually a really cute story behind it. Amber’s late grandfather used to call her “Peanut,” so I’m sure seeing the little peanut drawing on her baby girl will bring fond memories of him to mind. There’s hints of how special the name “Peanut” is by the smile on Amber’s face. I can’t wait to meet little Daryn! Alternate titles: “Baby’s Got Bump,” “I Don’t See Nothin’ Wrong With a Little Baby Bump and Grind,” “Peanut’s Pretty in Pink” and “Watch Out World — It’s a Baby Girl.”
