So, the last two days have been busy busy busy crafting days. I've gotten busy putting Evan's name on a lot of things. If there's one thing I love, I sure do love me a monogrammed item. The big thing was making the letters for over her crib.
Whew lordy. Every time I say "Oh, that won't be hard at all" I should realized it's a death sentence. Trying to get the fabric around all those curves was a nightmare. But it's done and I love them. I also made her a bib (there will be lots more to come in a variety of fabrics!) with her name embroidered on it and paci clips with her name.
A towel to hang next to brother's in the bathroom. (Baby girl, this should be a testament of how much I love you. I hate making these towels. The letters float everywhere, it's hard to keep things straight and together, and all that extra towel gets in the way. But I love you, and I want you to have what your brother has, so a towel you got.)
There will be much much more to come, for this is only the beginning. Can you tell I love her name? When we were trying to narrow down the choices on our lists, I was so afraid I wouldn't find a name for this kid that I love as much as Luke's name. I love his name. Love it. For me it's just perfect. Actually with Luke and Evan we weren't 100% sure that the name was "the" name until the sonogram. And then it just fit. As soon as the lady said "it's a girl!" I just knew she was an Evan. Charlie and James were our other two girls names, but all of a sudden I knew who she was. It's one of those things I think every mom feels when she finally names her baby, the name that just fits.
On a sentimental note. Today Mom showed me a small box of the few baby dresses she had saved from me and Ashely. She still had the dress that she brought me home from the hospital in, and I got to bring it home and hang it in my girl's closet! It's in amazingly good shape, as well as the little shoes that I had worn. Hopefully I won't give birth to a giant and she can wear this home too!
