8 weeks down....

It's been 8 weeks since my dossier went to Ethiopia. Each day seems long and grueling but, looking back, it really hasn't seemed that long after all. It is hard to believe that September is winding down. It has finally cooled down (yea!) and is starting to feel like fall. I love this time of year--break out the hoodies! No idea when a referral will come. Two more came this week for a 3 year old and a 5 year old. Exciting that things are moving forward. Courts are due to open in a little over a week and the pediatrician that does all the medicals is back (apparently he had a little hiatus) so maybe things will work in my favor.

Over the weekend, my sister-in-law Lesa and I went baby clothes shopping at Old Navy and Kohl's. Bought several sleepers, nice fleecy ones. I also ordered some long-sleeve onesies from Old Navy (incredible sale) and some socks (I've heard their socks are the best!).

A couple weeks ago I found some cushions to fit the rocking chair in the nursery so now Mom doesn't have to try and make any...here they are with Ollie modeling their comfort. Yes, I posed him there but I did not make him go to sleep...he just conked out.

I also made my fleece blanket out of the same material as my wall-hanging and the quilt Mom made me. I made a similar one for my niece Madi...her's had a green backing.

I'll post again soon...

Jill,
I just want you to know that I am following your posts with baited breath. I am so excited for you that you're going to be getting a baby! We're pulling for a quick referral. Good luck.
Your cousin,
Kristina
