I bought you a present..

I bought you a present today baby. And, I just know your going to love it. I had one when I was little too, and so when I saw it, I knew you had to have one ... after all, it's kind of amazing. If I'm honest with myself it's probably just as much for me as it is for you. {But, shh. Don't tell daddy. }

Did I tell you we're number three on the waiting list baby? Soon, so very soon I will meet you.

I'm counting down the days, even though I don't know how long they will be. We're hoping and praying we get to meet you as soon as possible... not only so we can prepare for you, but also so we can try and bring you home before the Ugandan courts close for the summer. If I have to wait to bring you home for months after I've seen your sweet face I may just die.

Hopefully it will be so. Hopefully it will be soon.

I have a whole box of baby things for you now baby. I had to have Tia Koko give me a new, bigger box after they moved because my old baby box was too small. I have all kinds of things in that box. Dresses for girls, cups for toddlers, books for babies, shirts for boys. I bought you the cutest dress ever if your a girl. If not, Aunty Liz will like it very much I'm sure.

That is the good thing about having little aunts and uncles baby... not only do you get automatic friends, I also don't feel as bad buying things you may never wear.. because they can wear it if you can't.

I love you baby. I can't wait to hold you and kiss you and tell you your home forever.



PS Here's what I bought you today...


We have two for sure girl names picked out now.. and two bouncing baby boy names, so baby dear, you've got a name now... but until we see you and know it fits, your little face, my lips are sealed..

Hi. I've read your blog(s) everyday, but I never comment...I don't know why! Anywho, when I read this post another one of my favorite blogs came to mind. I could tell you all about it, but I think it'd be easier to read in her words. So, here is the post that made me think of you:

and here is what you could win for your sweet, sweet baby all while helping a lot of great people!

Take Care!

This brings back memories; my littlest sister had one! Isn't preparing such fun?

I highly recommend the book The Handbook of International Adoption Medicine. It was the best one I read because it also explains solutions and treatments so you can see things coming a mile away and start heading them off long before you even get to professional help.

I have this for my girls, too. It was my favorite toy when I was a kid, and my parents gave mine to my older daughter when she turned one. It is so fun!
