And now we know!

Monday, when we got back from our 32 weeks echography, I installed in the corner of our crib a matryoshka softie made by the very talented Ella from Little Red Caboose. Dan gave me this doll for our 6th month wedding anniversary (back in 2008).

Soon, this lovely doll will belong to our baby girl, Alice!
We could not be happier!!!

It took us a few seconds to realized that she was looking right at us! We didn't even know that this kind of "portrait" was possible. I have been staring at the picture ever since!

Yay! Congrats!

I guess if I couldn't have a little Alice (that was the name we had picked out for a girl too), I can just live vicariously through your LO's cuteness :)

Yayayay! A wee lassie will be lovely. Great name choice. My favorite books growing up were about a girl named Alice by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor.

Great name! And congrats!
I was also curious about the crib you chose: what brand or name is it? It looks very cute!

I am late in congratulating you. Alice is a lovely name. Félicitations!
ps: i'm curious - how come you found out so late about the gender?

Awww! Congratulations!!! Little Alice :) So lovely! I've had such a blog-reading drought lately, but was so happy to check in here and see your happy news. Oh, and your ultrasound photo is the most breathtaking I have seen--it's like she's peering right at you! xx
