This company sells the best candles. I am one of those people that love their candles to be strong and to burn for a long time. My mom introduced me to these candles and I can't get enough of them. They make the whole house smell wonderful! -- I am currently the owner of 3 and know I will be adding more to my collection shortly. So, if you have some time head over to downtown Wylie and pick up one or you can order one here, at their store website.

Saturday morning began with a quick run to home depot and lots of painting. The walls and ceiling were painted a creamy white with the one wall painted pink.
Sandra suggested to paint the one wall pink. We matched the light pink dot on the polka dot pattern on her bedding. Soon, this wall will have 3 large full print damask prints going down the wall off centered. I am anxious to see how it looks.
All the crown molding and baseboards
Sandra also suggested having one painted piece in the nursery. Just after our meeting I found this display table at a children's clothing store that was going out of business. I'm not sure how we will paint it, but I loved the distressed look and style of this table.
On to the crown....
Our friends Eric and Chris and his dad Dennis came over on Sunday to help with the crown. Crown is such a hard thing to do. Your cuts have to be so precise, but when you have two builders on hand the job can get done!
This picture was taken right after it was put up. After Evan finished caulking and painting over the nail holes we were a little disappointed how the crown looked against the white walls. It just blended in. Chris suggested painting the crown in a high gloss. Evan finished that Thursday night and that did the trick! (I'll have to post a picture of that soon)
Notice the new ceiling fan.....
Swatches from Audrey's Bedding....

Baby woman, tiny in stature now
But your heart is a treasure
Little princess come follow behind me now
I am reaching for you
Elliana, God has answered my prayers
Elliana, God will conquer my fears
To mother a daughter, to look you in the eye
To know that I had everything, to walk with you in life
To give you to Jesus that He would impart
The wisdom that I'm longing for to mother your heart
Elliana, God has answered my prayers
There will be others to lead and to guide you girl
But only one you'll call Mother, the honor is all mine
To show you what a woman's like
I'm so glad you're mine
Tenderness of God is twirling around
In our living room tonight
Lighten up your daddy's eyes
And know that he just wants to freeze you in time
Precious Audrey, we can't wait to meet you....

We are so excited to announce that we are having a baby girl! I wish I had good sonogram pictures to put up here, but they are terrible. Evan and I can't see anything on them!
We bought some new clothes for her that included precious bows! We can't wait!

I'm dying to know the sex of our baby. It is killing me.
I keep having dreams about a girl and really wonder if this could be a sign. In my first dream I was decorating her room and couldn't quite get the curtains right. In the next dream Evan and I were getting a sonogram of the baby and the technician announced it was a girl!
I went to Canton, Texas (First Monday) this weekend and there were so many amazing things for little girls!
One vendor was "The Hollywood Ranch" -- www.hollywoodranch.com another was puppiesandpigtails.com -- I kept their business card just in case!:)

Sonogram pictures at 7 1/2 Weeks! - Due Date: April 16, 2009
These photos were taken on September 2nd at our first appointment. After all the questions and paper work I was anxious to get to the sonogram part. It was amazing to watch the baby move and see his/her heartbeat. The technician was very friendly and showed us the blood flow from my body through the umbilical cord into the baby. They have a button that they push and shows the blood pumping through the babies body in red/blue. It was amazing! Here is a picture to give you an idea.
Many friends and family have been calling to check on us during hurricane Ike. My school was closed today. Ike is due to make land fall this evening. The winds have been very strong all day and have continued to pick up through the evening. I'm not sure what we will see tonight or tomorrow.

I've noticed how emotional I am becoming. I got so frustrated at church the other morning that I had to step out into the hallway... I was in tears! I knew why, but others didn't. I feel so on edge and it is hard to calm my emotions down once they are stirred.
I haven't gotten sick but have become nauseas in the mornings and some throughout the day when I do not eat.
I am so excited to meet this baby. I have so many questions
- I wonder if he/she will have black hair like Evan
- Will they be tender hearted like me?
- I wonder if he/she will be creative like Evan and have his passion for learning?

That afternoon I made an appointment with my doctor for Sept 2nd. ---And let me tell you that day can't come soon enough! I am so excited to see the heartbeat and our babies first picture! I pray that the baby is healthy and everything is growing and developing right on track!
It is amazing the pregnancy symptoms that have already occurred.
- Going to the Bathroom at 3 am every night!
- Strange cravings-- Meat (any kind) and cheese!
- Slight nausea (My medicine makes me sick)
- Sensitivity to smells (I tried to go grocery shopping the other day and it was awful.. it made me so sick at my stomach to smell all the fruits, fish, cheese, coffee, etc.)
I believe I am about 5 1/2 weeks along! Our baby is between the size of a sesame seed and lentil
