I love Alex's nursery. When we found out we were having a boy, I immediately started searching for bedding and found out the boy choices were extremely limited.  Basically the options were blue, or well, blue.  I had no idea whether he would like trucks, sports, airplanes, or trains so how could I predetermine a theme?  Besides, I really don't like themes.  Thus, I along with my talented mother, designed and created our own with a striped pattern of primary colors and lime green with white polka dots.  There is a loose theme, however.  We came across Sunny the Sock Monkey and he happened to match the bedding perfectly.  Now Alex has a sock monkey bank and whole little monkey outfit, thanks to Aunt Julie.  There is also the feature of prints of Alex's cat, RC, and of course the big white dog, Elka.  thaKing took these and IRL they look like paintings.  Hopefully he likes his kitty and dog.  So far so good.  The bunting and monogrammed photo frame are from Just Lovely Katherine.  She is so talented.

How haute are these Carlos Santana 4" pumps?  I'm not sure where I'm going to wear them, but I had to have them!  Maybe I will wear them when I go back to work in a week and a half. It will be a sad day without my boy, but maybe my new killer shoes can make me smile a little.  How better to make my entrance back into the courtroom?

On New Year's Eve thaKing and I received the best gift ever, our healthy baby boy, Alexander Grant King.  Weighing in at 9 lbs and 21" in length, he was large just as expected.  It has been quite the adjustment.  Everyone says having a child completely changes your life, but you can't imagine how much so until you are running on sleep deprivation and completely submerged in constant care for this new little being.  It's the hardest job I've ever done, but the best, all at the same time. Everyday my love grows for Alex.  I go back to work in just under 3 weeks, and I expect that day that I do, will be one of the hardest days ever.

With the birth of baby Alex, I had to clear out my memory card in my digital camera.  So here is the 2010 year in review, which includes my trip to Marco Island with my lovely mom, the World Equestrian Games and the holidays.
