  1. Congratulations!

    If Elijah had been a girl he would have been named Ella Caitlin - I had first and middle names picked for both sexes right from the start. My brother ended up calling his little girl Ella Caprice (born earlier this year) but he had no idea that it was the same name I had chosen - really odd coincidence. I hear plenty of names and think I'd like them but I think once you hear the right one you'll know.

    I'm already a follower (found you through your Felt profile I think)

    Have 'liked' you on facebook :)

    And will pop a button on my blog now

  3. Congratulations!!!

    My birthday is the day before st paddys day :)

  4. Hi, I just your blog so Congratulations!

    My favourite girl's name at the moment is Maggie. And of course, I love my daughter's name, Ava Lily.

    Am now a follower and have liked you on facebook.

  5. That's just lovely news! I like Amelia (my daughters name) but she was going to be Olive (until she was literally born and then I husband didn't mind, I had just pushed her out so i had a bit of clout at that stage!!!)
    All the best! Jane

  6. Hi Lisa, We think baby girls are pretty cool, as we have 3 daughters! I love the names Chloe, Lily and Kate. Wonder if your little girl will be pink, pink, pink???

  7. Ahhh, congrats--that's wonderful news! Good luck making it through the nausea (it's horribly annoying)! Don't plan on baking/cooking anything during that period--lol!
    I love the names Ella, Emma, Amelia and Sophia.

  8. Hi That purse is lovely. My favorite girl names are Kaitlyn and Molly - just love them... Thanks

  9. Hello! Congratulations on having a holiday baby! Both my brother and i's birthdays fall on quirky celebrations- Groundhogs day and Cinco De Mayo, its always a blast! :)
    My absolute favorite girl's names are Sylvia, Cecilia and Pearl. You could try thinking of an influential woman or figure over time to name her after!

    Enjoy your journey into parenthood!

    Ok, well since I've tried twice to have a girl, and so far... no luck, I', going to share with you my favorite names. Seems it's all boys for me! I have loved these names since I was a little girl and always said if I ever had a daughter it would be one of three:

    Savannah Shae
    Marlow Rose
    Adley Elizabeth

    There you go. Good luck with finding the perfect name for your perfect little pink bundle of joy ♥

  11. Congratulations! Your little one will have so many beautiful gifts from her Mamma - all handmade with care.

    Some of my favorite names:
    Violet Liliana (my daughter)
    Eve or Eva

    Best wishes!

  12. Congratulations on your girl!! I have two wonderful daughters who are amazing so I am partial to Chloe and Tess. They are now 18 and 15 so I would like to give you a word of advice: Believe me, a daughter will keep you on your toes but the joy they bless your life with is immeasurable. And years pass in nano-seconds so treasure every minute!
