Ta-da! The Prince's Chamber revealed...

Well, the photo itself won't win any awards for composition...but as far as content goes, I'm really, really proud of myself. =)

Here is his room. You can get the general idea from the shot, but all humility aside, I have to say, it is just a gorgeous room, especially after 3 pm, when the western sunlight spills in the room.... It just makes me so happy to be able to sit in here and dream of our son.

Thank you to the following people for helping inspire and bring to life this nusery: Rachael Ray, for featuring the wonders of acrylic gel medium on your TV show. To Hobby Lobby, for selling scrapbooking paper cheap enough to let me make affordable wall hangings (and to MaryBeth for keeping me company for the hour and a half it took to pick out said paper). To our parents for their generous contributions to this room -- his crib and the glider and ottoman. To Jerry, whose days at Kraft resulted in the weiner bus that got me comfortable with the thought of orange in this room. To my Grandma Soldano, for remaining my favorite seamstress ever and cranking out those perfect drapes. He will know he is loved by so, so many from the moment we bring him home.

Hi Monica, This is Aunt Vikki. I recently been checking your blog, it is so interesting. Sorry to hear you've been having alot of complications though. I'm sure you've heard this, If God brings you to it, he will get you through it. All will be ok. The baby's room is adorable, you must be so proud. Well you take care, we love all three of you.
