I worked on another spread in Riley's Book today. This one is about his new tendency to wake up in the 5:00 AM hour- ugh! I know that this is not terribly early for a lot out there, but I was getting real used to being able to sleep until 8:00, which is when he used to wake up! It seems every week, he falls into a new schedule- it's hard to keep up! Oh well, hopefully the early rising is just a short phase, and I guess I should count my blessings that he's been sleeping through the night since two months! And anyway, he's worth any amount of sleeplessness I may have!
These photos aren't the greatest unfortunately. I couldn't seem to capture the true colors. In real life, the background is a sort of "glowing" aqua blue- so pretty! As I told Corey (the other blogging Corey!), blue has never been a favorite color of mine in art. But having a baby boy has I guess converted me! There are some glorious shades of blue out there, completely different than the navy or denim blues that I had always envisioned when I thought "blue". Watery aquas, bright turquoise (like this piece of furniture), pale, pale sky blue, misty grey-blue.... Of course, I'm sure I'll find some even more glorious shades of pink if I ever have a baby girl!
