This is the bedding we've decided to use in the room. We're planning on painting the wall above the paneling the light pink color (like the bed skirt). Too much fun!

Quinn's bedroom (the before)

So Jaime and I decided to start working on the bedroom that will soon be occupied by our little lady. After spending an entire day looking at bedding sets and accessories, we finally agreed on a cute little set that has pink, khaki, brown, and white stripes as well as the same colors in a sort of polka dot swirl pattern. Neither one of us realized how incredibly stressful (and expensive) this little venture was going to be. Anyway, somehow during our day of shopping Jaime decided that he wanted to put up chair-rail in her room also. Chair rail is sort of like crown molding but will be placed on the wall about three feet from the floor. We're going to keep the bottom portion under the rail the khaki color that we already have in the room and paint the top portion "angel pink". The pictures I've posted show the room in complete disarray. Jaime's got quite a full plate now: install rail, paint rail, paint walls, put together furniture, and a nightly foot rub/back massage for his leading lady :). Hopefully things will start to come together in the next few weeks, our little Quinn surely cannot live in a room of this manner!!

Perfectly Precious in . . . PINK!!

Jaime and I had our much awaited and anticipated ultrasound last Thursday. We found out that we're having a GIRL!! I was lying on the exam table (already with tears welled up in my eyes) when our RN asked us if we were interested in finding out the sex. Before she was able to finish her sentence Jaime and I both yelled "yes!". Once she told us that we're having a girl, Jaime jumped out of his seat and exclaimed "I knew it!". At that moment I nearly lost my breath, and my composure. There are not enough words to explain how excited and thrilled I was, not only because we were able to find out the sex but also to know that she looks healthy and growing as she should. We were able to see the little princess move. She was turning her head from side to side and slapping her hand on the placenta. We've decided to name our little lady Quinn Marie. We are so in love with her and cannot hardly wait to finally meet her!
