The Nursery is Coming Together

We've been workig on the nursery (also known as the storage room for the past 5 years). Cleaning out that room was a lot of work! Whew, I'm glad it's over. We decided to go with pink and lime green for Mallory's room. Here are a couple's a work in progress.

Baby Shower

Brennan and LeighAnne hosted a wonderful baby shower for me. It was truly fantastic. I really enjoyed seeing my friends -- and I'm sure they enjoyed my growing belly!

Here are a few pictures from the shower. My due date is 4 weeks away....Baby Mallory could arrive at any time!

Thanks, Brennan and LeighAnne, for being such great friends! You two are great party throwers!

It's official: her name will be MALLORY

Well, we have officially decided on a name for Baby Raines. Her name will be MALLORY CLAIRE RAINES. It's nice to have that decision out of the way, whew! Now, we can practice calling her Mallory so we don't forget it when she's born!

We've been working on the nursery. We painted it lime green! We also bought cute little letters spelling Mallory to hang on the wall. I'll have to post pictures of the nursery soon...
