My First Post - 19 Weeks, 5 Days

So... I decided to start this blog because I figured it would be a great way for friends and family to keep up with my pregnancy and eventually baby Chappel! In case you don't know, we've already decided on a name for our future little girl: Chappel Leigh Curtis Williams. To avoid any confusion-- her name is pronounced like a church chapel. Her first name is a family name from my side. It's pretty and unique-- I just hope she doesn't have too many teachers & classmates call her something else. I remember how embarrassing the first day of school was... my teachers always made a big scene when they got to my name on the roll. I guess history repeats itself! Her first middle name is for both sides. For my little sister, Margaret Leigh and many others on my mom's side. Leigh is also a family name on Reed's side. Finally, Reed's maternal grandmother was Mary Curtis. I really like her name and think it has a good ring to it!

We bought a crib several weeks ago. We waited to find out the gender (17 weeks) and then ran into a deal that we couldn't pass up. The Bellini store in Homewood decided not to carry Bellini baby furniture anymore- weird, I know. They're changing their name and everything... but anyways we got the crib for 50% off!

Here's a pic of the crib crammed in our guest room! The guest room will eventually be converted into a nursery, but I am putting it off for as long as possible. Our house is a 3/2. However, we are currently using our third bedroom as a dining room. About a month before learning I was pregnant, my mom completely redecorated our dining room. We recovered my grandmother's dining room chairs, hung new curtains-- and it looks great. I can't bring myself to put it all away and into storage... so NO guest room it is. It was a hard decision to make, but we don't have guests too often!

My mom went to market in Atlanta and bought us this green chandelier. I love it!
