Well, tonight we were less than motivated to get off the couch! We went to Chattanooga today to celebrate cousin Mia's 2nd birthday, and we are worn out! So, after dinner we both sat down and have yet to move (it's 10 now). While we were sitting here, we were looking on potterybarnkids.com. We knew we wanted to register there and at BabiesRUs, but we haven't done either. On Thursday, we went to Green Hills to look at the furniture we had been eyeing online to be sure we liked it in person. Yep, we loved it! We have decided to get a toddler bed rather than a crib for many different reasons, and Pottery Barn has a really cute one. Tonight we made our registry there! It, like many other things happening in our life, seems surreal. She is coming!!!! We don't know when exactly, but she will be home and we will be ready! To bad with adoption you don't get a 'due date' in advance like you do with pregnancy. We have a time frame of 6-8 mos.--which you know I am way too OCD for that to work in my head. So the question is, do we sit around until August to start getting ready?....NO!
Not that it will happen, but what if they get our paperwork and call in 2 mos? I have to be somewhat ready! Plus, doing all of it makes her more real.
I look at the clock and often wonder what she is doing. Though she has no idea that we exsist, we know she does and we love her. She is our daughter! I bet she is going down for a nap about now. It is 10:15 p.m on Sat. here, so it is 1:15 p.m. on Sunday there. She probably finished lunch, played and is going to lay on her her pallet and take a nap.
Anywho, the point of the post was to say....we registered at one of our two spots! I want her to know that we are so excited for her to come home that we are planning for her and talking about her all the time!
