One Born this February. Columbus Maternity Photography

Amanda and Michael.  Maternity.

Well, really just Amanda, maternity.  But Michael did have SOME involvement.  :)

You may recognize this soon-to-be Momma from the Lifetime show “One Born Every Minute“.  Yep, she’s the starring labor and delivery nurse.  And pretty soon, she’ll be on the other side of the hospital bed.  How exciting!

My fave.  LOVE!
Woody is ready for Brynleigh to arrive.  With big kisses and all!
Amanda is an avid scrapbooker.  It was only fitting to use her scrapping stickers to spell her baby girl’s name on her belly.  
Michael was singing, “Baby got back” to Brynleigh.  It was quite hilarious!
I’ll be seeing you REAL soon.  Can’t wait to snuggle with that precious little newborn!  XoXo.

Stella Bleu. Columbus Baby Photography

Stella Bleu.  9 Months Big.

Stella’s Mommy and Pixie’s Mommy have something in common.  Night owls who love to keep Mommy from getting more than a couple of hours of sleep.

Erin and I have had several chats about our restless babies.  It’s a great feeling to know there are Mommy’s out there going through some of the same situations.  A breath of fresh air, really.

Sleep deprivation is all worth it…  LOOK AT THIS BEAUTIFUL GIRL!  (I’m typing this as my little one is crying and doesn’t wanna go down for her nap. Wah Wah.)

How pretty princess is this nursery?!  Just perfect for Stella Bleu.  Love the name!
