And the baby's name is...

name pillow!

And let me just say that I am severely disappointed in the magnitude of people who don't get the literary reference. Anne of Green Gables? L. M. Montgomery? Road to Avonlea? Ringing any bells? Seriously, about 99% of the people I know in real life have never heard of it. This makes me sad.

Anyway, for those of you who are in that same boat, it's pronounced Av (like have)-in-lee. The boys already call her Avie and it is adorable.

I can't believe people wouldn't remember good ol' Anne of Green Gables. Very sad.

I'm glad you've decided on a name that means something to you, its cute :)

Pretty! It's unique too! And what girl doesn't get the reference? We all read that book in like the 4th grade!

That is the most amazing name ever!!! Seriously, Anne of Green Gables might possibly be my favorite book ever and I'm sad that I didn't have a girl and think of it first.

Love it! When I saw the above post before I read the reference I was going to say "As in Anne of?" But then I kept reading. =)

I love A-V names...I guess I better since I have an Avelyn!

The room looks great...my kids still have the quilts you made them, although the kids are about as big as the quilts these days. =)
