preparing


a "rag" quilt I made for Jenna


a "required" pink item I picked up after we got PA


"jenna" blocks added to the rest of ours

We're preparing for Jenna, in ways big and small.
Rearranging bedrooms. Purchasing bedding (matching bedding, that is so super cute - pictures forthcoming when room is finished!), each time I go to Target, I pick up some necessity for the trip. Immodium, TUMS, (can you tell I'm concerned about our tummies?) antibacterial wet wipes, tylenol for all, the list goes on. But the point is, I am checking items OFF it!
I'm reading "The Connected Child," (very informative, very practical) and I picked up the most excellent children's book from Amazon recently. It's called "I Wished for You." It's a marvelous story of adoption through a conversation between a mother and child bear asking questions about how they became a family. If it's one you haven't seen, you should!
We're currently waiting on our 800 approval. It should arrive any day now. Maybe a few days ago, actually. But it's fine because I know we're getting there. Looking at the calendar this week at May's arrival!! wow! Next month is likely the month that I'll look face to face at my daughter for the first time. I can't wait!!!
