Baby Walker and His Nursery

Meet Walker. He's 10 days old and ridiculously cute (duh). He belongs to my sweet friend Eleanor of Oh Louise!, and I'm so happy to be an honorary aunt.

We got to meet him for the first time this weekend, and it was magical. After a long night of doing his best to keep his parents awake, little Walker was quite the charmer. He starred at us, made funny faces, slept a little bit, and did this really sweet fake cry where his face looked like he should be screaming but he wasn't actually making any noise. Love him.

On top of being a pretty cool baby, his mom hooked him up with a pretty sweet little baby bachelor pad. These pics are from my phone, and don't do the room justice but I was too excited to wait for good pictures. Its a woodland creature wonderland... not too baby, and will transition to a big boy room without doing much of anything (but knowing Eleanor, she will probably give it a new spin when that time comes anyways).

She's a really gifted thrift-finder (here, here and here) and did a great job of mixing old with new in Walker's nursery to stay true to her style.

This is one of my favorite things in the room. I know a book shelf wall is a pretty common thing to have in nurseries right now, but this is special. A lot of these books came from their gender reveal party we (myself and 5 of our dear friends) hosted. We didn't know if Walker was going to be a he or a she, and they hadn't registered... so we asked every one to bring a book and write a message in it. If you look closely, you can see a "Merry Christmas Curious George" book... hilarious because Eleanor is slightly obsessed with Christmas, and a "Ferdinand the Bull" book, which was one of my favorites growing up. Its just sweet and I love it.

Walker is pretty cool. I think we're all really pumped that he's finally here! Way to go El! 
(please disregard the no-makeup face, oops!)

P.S. - Once she's back from maternity leave, you people need to check out her Etsy shop - its legit. Muah!
