spilling the beans


The decision is made. What sweet beans to spill.

The girl's name Amelie \a-me-lie\ is a variant of Amelia (Latin, Old German) and Emily (Latin). The meaning of Amelie is "industrious, striving; work; rival; laborious; eager."

Brooke is a family name that is near and dear to my heart.

Ben is calling her Elle. Thom is calling her Ellie. And me? I'm calling her Birdie.

I held a green bough in my heart and a singing bird has come.

*************************************
The nursey is almost finished. Hopefully I can give you a little peek into Amelie's room this weekend!
