Opal is not an oval

My daughter is expecting her first daughter within the next three weeks.  She and her husband decided that Opal would be her name.  Shortly after during dinner her eldest son, age 6, spoke up and said, "Why are we naming our baby after a shape?"

Imagine my delight when I was reading a shape and baby book by Ann Geddes to my oldest son's youngest daughter and came to this two page spread.

I am sure that Opal will be ever bit as cute and delightful as this baby in an oval.  Can't wait!

Her crib is ready.  I finished it all up last week.

Big brother Henry helped me get all those ruffles in place.  Thank goodness he is skinny and can just roll under the bed.

Both of the  pieces of wall decor were on the walls of my daughter's childhood bedroom.

I can't wait to see the little one in her bed.  I explained to Henry that when she first comes home, she would fit crosswise in her bed.  That set him back a bit.

I love the color palate. 

I love that I was able to help with my daughter's dream.
