Sneak Peek at the Nursery, & A Baby Name

So, we've announced at least part of the baby's name to most of the family, I figure that everyone else deserves to know at least that much as well!

We will be calling our baby girl:

It is short for something, we're not telling you what yet - so just be happy with what we're giving you! LOL.

We've also finished her nursery for the most part, only waiting on the letters my sister will be painting to hang above her crib. Here's a few shots for now of the room. It's been a long process, and for those of you who had seen the room when it belonged to Paige, you will understand.

It was originally the tongue and groove paneling you see, which we did decide to leave up but paint to save some money. All the trim had to be done as well as the walls, and then came the pink. I have to say that I am really pleased with how it turned out. Here's a little walk through our journey to finishing the nursery.

The room before we did anything to it at all!
This is the room after it had gotten a good coat or 2 of white

And after the pink walls and furniture has been added

This is where she will be sleeping - a perfect little nursery. We worked hard!!

So Cute- the room and the name! (My niece is Ellie, short for Noelle). Girl names are hard because there are so many cute ones to choose from. Boy names are just plain hard.
