Camille's Room

I haven't blogged in so long some of you might not know that the Fletcher family is growing! We are expecting a little girl due July 11th.  But I hope she comes sooner because it's hot and I'm ginormous and she is a dancing fool pretty much all the time that she is awake!  Last time I was preggo I did not have that nesting feeling.  People would talk about how obsessive I'd become about cleaning and getting everything ready.  But at the time we knew we were going to move almost right after Casey was born so if I had the feeling to nest I just ignored it and the desire to clean didn't really come.  With this baby though I am nesting full force!  It goes beyond getting things ready for her...I am like literally excited to clean.  I'm cleaning everything and then like the other day I looked down and saw that my blanket was machine washable and I was like "Ooo I'm going to clean it!"  This is beyond crazy for me, but I like it.

This weekend we got Camille's half of the room ready for her.  I hope to post pic's of the kids shared room soon but I'm not done with Casey's side yet, which will be a baseball theme.  I just loved the way it turned out!  I got those old hankies at an antique store back I think when Chris and I were just barely married and I told the lady what I was going to do with them. I said I was going to hang them up over my baby girl crib if I ever have a girl.  And she was like you'll probably only have boys then.  Don't you just love people like that?  Boo.  Anyways I am proud of her room!

I've been getting a lot of comments on how unusual the name we picked for her is.  I know Camille isn't very popular but that's what I like about it.  My name is Megan and my husbands name is Chris.  I had at least 2 Megan's in my class all growing up, and everyone knows how common Chris is.  We always had to be known by our last name's initial. I hated it.  So I wanted both my kids to have familiar yet different names.  Also I never expected my husband would even like the name Camille.  We had kind of settled on Alice for her but I just didn't LOVE it.  So wrote out a list of names and put in Camille because I'd been watching a British show and there was a girl on there named Camilla and I liked that but I like the french version of the name better. So I slipped that name in and he liked it best! I really couldn't believe it!  But we both love it.  Camille means perfect and her middle name is my sister's middle name, Claire which means pure.  I would love for her to have a pure heart!  I just love name meanings especially when the child matches the meaning! Casey means brave, and boy he is very brave, willing to do anything and take any risk.  It's very fun!  I can't wait to meet her!


  1. Very cute room! And congrats on your little girl soon to arrive!

  2. I love the name Camille because that's my youngest sister's name! It's true though that I don't know any other person named Camille, but I've always thought it was beautiful. When she was younger, we called her Molly. Cami never stuck - do you think you'll have a nickname, or stick with the full name?

    The room looks great, by the way.

  3. What tv show did you get her name from? I've been watching Call the Midwife and there is a Camilla on there. I LOVE the name! So pretty for a little girl! Can't wait to see her cute little self!
