Y'ALL. We had a baby! We have a baby! His name is Tucker Manning Matthews and he is the most precious chunk of rolls and love. We cannot get enough. Everything everyone says about parenthood is true. It's exhausting, there will be tears (for days) and it is the biggest heart bursting love you cannot even imagine. 

Blog posts over here will remain all about everything decorating, that's what you came for after all,  but I dried my hair and put on makeup and EARRINGS for one of the first times in weeks so it deserves to be documented. And the kiddo deserves to be debuted because I'm biased and he's the cutest kid in the world and I married the greatest guy in the world. I mean, emotions, people, emotions. Pouring out all the time. 

 We kind of don't look tired...kind of??

And since we put the baby in a bucket for a bath, I had to share. He was optimistically cautious about the whole experience. 

Okay one more, and then a nursery tour from the iPhone.

We moved into Casa Rodman, as I lovingly refer to our abode, in late June while construction was still happening. Finishing touches and installations continued all the way up to the day before Tucker was born and there are still many holes to fill in (rugs/art to be hung/decorating in general since I am my own worst client and have commitment issues when it comes to our home) but I was sure to finish the nursery before anything else. And it evolved into the cutest little jungle space. 

Above is obviously a glimpse through the iPhone - I need the professional touch of Anna or Laura to really show it off one day. And speaking of those two ladies, tomorrow I'll be featuring my favorite shots that they've captured over my years of working with them as part of Jana Bek's #CameraReadyInteriors series. Along with 24 other designers and bloggers, I'll share the gorgeous shots they get time and time again. Check back mañana for more!
