Final Countdown

With only one week left until my due date, I've been busy getting things ready for my little one. We still don't have a name picked out. I'm leaning towards Leona, Elle, Estelle or Lydia. Clint doesn't really care for any of those names. Anyone's input would be greatly appreciated.

I made some little do-dads for her hair. Hopefully she has some. If not, these will help her not look like a boy.

Easton wanted to model the hair accessories. Doesn't he look lovely.
I got my thank-you cards made.

I actually made a quilt. I dislike sewing immensely and I am not any good at it. Maybe that's why I don't like it. Thanks to my husband who can do anything, including electrical work without having any instructions, Clint hung the chandelier and installed the medallion. I can't keep my eyes off it. I have to look in her room every time I walk by.
The best news about the chandelier, I got it for free. The company I purchased it from sent it to me without any crystals. When I called to request them they informed me the manufacturer didn't have them and they would credit me the cost of the light. Woo-hoo. I just went to Home Depot and bought some crystals instead.

Now I will wait for my little one to come. The doctor said my body is ready so she could be here anytime now.

Good luck.
Can't wait to see pic's.
You know those pic's are gonna come back to haunt your boy one day!

I am so jealous you are almost done! I can't wait to see what this sweet little girl is going to look like. You need to take more pictures of her room, it looks beautiful from the ones you posted.

Kristin said...

The chandelier is gorgeous, we need to see pics of the whole room!

We almost named Ella, Elle, bc it's one syllable and fits our pattern, Chris still prefers it. Brooke is naming one of her twins Lydia.

Love the flowers in Easton's hair. Good luck with the delivery! Hope it goes well.

Hope she comes soon. Cute chandelier, love that. I was so going to make you bows and flowers for your girl's hair, but my glue gun broke, that's when I came up with the skirt idea.
Love you! Take care and good luck with everything, can't wait to meet her!

So excited to see your little one. She will be darling.
I love the names. I think my fav is Elle.
I also love the quilt you made. You are so talented.
Good luck. Let us know when she comes.
Love you guys.

I am glad that my idea for Lydia is on the top of the name list. The bows are so cute. I love the quilt and the chandelier. Good Luck!

Colleen said...

I will cross my fingers that all goes well. I would love to come see new baby girl Thompson when she is born and maybe bring you some dinner so please keep me posted.

Betsy said...

I haven't seen you in years but
congratulations Clint on the baby and passing the bar! My wife says Scarlet is her vote for your baby's name.

Kara said...

Not that it matters, but I really like the name Lydia. (And contrary to what Thad thinks, NOT just because it is in a Jane Austen book. :) ) Those bows are so cute! They look great on Easton.

Awesome! Love the chandelier--I wanted something like that for our nursery but they were all so expensive. How cool you got yours for free! The hair clips and quilt are so cute, too. Oh, your little girl will be so loved, I can tell. Sorry I couldn't make it to your shower--it was my sis-in-law's birthday party that night. Hope you had fun!
