She has a name!

Well, she's actually had a name since the day after we found out that she is in fact a "she".  We've just been bouncing it around and calling her by her name to make sure that we do absolutely love it (and we do).  So she is officially 

Nicolette Branson Randazzo

I wanted something girly and feminine and had to give up my fight for the name Giuliana since the Italian was adamantly opposed.  So I put together a list of about 20 names on Sunday after our Gender Party and had the Italian review them.  He nixed every single name except Nicolette.  As soon as I heard him say it out loud I said you know I love that name too, let's name her Nicolette.  And so we did!  

Branson was our first name for a boy and it comes from part of my maiden name and we thought that it would still be a nice and special middle name for our little girl.  Not only is Nicolette a pretty name, but the Randazzo family is full of Nicholases.  Grandpa Randazzo is a Nicholas so this is a nice variation on it   and each of her names incorporate a part of each of our families which makes it even more special.  

I think it may be the fastest that two parents have ever named a child, but when you know, you know, right?  

Other than the name we just started work on the nursery - I've been taping off the trim and Daddy was kind enough to start painting this weekend.  We'll definitely share pictures as it starts to come together. 

And I can't wait to see my Hump Day Bump Day pic this coming Wednesday...I feel like she's tripled in size over the last two weeks.  Time is trucking right along and we'll be 6 months along this week...I can hardly believe it!
