Thank you all for your sweet comments welcoming our baby girl and on little Alice's nursery. It was just enough comment love to kick that girl into action, two days later (and mere 10 days past her due date) Alice decided she'd come out and see what all the fuss was about. We love this room and love it even more now that it has a little peanut calling it home. We've already spent many hours in here cuddling, feeding and pooping. Eat, sleep, poop, repeat... and I wouldn't change it for anything.
