We finally got our 171-H approval this week. Now we just need the babe!

Naia had her tonsils removed yesterday. It's not been near the ordeal that I imagined it would be. She's just laying around and resting though. Xavier had his first overnight visit with some of our friends the night before the surgery. We had to be at the hospital so early that it would have been impossible to get him to school before we needed to be there. It's so nice to have friends that help out whenever needed.

I just finished reading the Sisterhood of the traveling pants series. Cute books. I had heard they are coming out with the second movie this summer and that made me want to read them, b/c I haven't even seen the first movie! So now I've read all four books and I'm not sure I want to see the movie! Crazniess!

Well I tried to post some pics but it wouldn't let me. Not much is happening here. We had a pretty busy weekend. My great grandma passed away after living life for the Lord for 92 years. We spent Saturday with my dad's family just hanging out. My mom took me and Naia to a nail place and we all got our toe nails done. Just some good girl time. My dad had Xavier and my younger cousin and they went to Academy sports and got boy stuff; which included a new fish tank. For fish we don't own yet. A serious quote from my dad" Well I thought we could go get some fish and put them in the fridge to keep the good until you left to go back to Russellville." My mom and I cracked up. We decided to wait on the fish and came home with the tank and $$ for the fish later!

We've started church league softball again! I'm coaching this year. Last night was our first game. Tons of fun! It's such a great atmosphere to be around. We even won which made it even better! Tonight we have another game and I actually get to play tonight! Not get to play I guess, but am needed to play so we have enough players! So I get the best of both worlds! And I get to wear my cute new cleats!!(I know I'm such a girl)

We got our phone call today! Our homestudy has officially been approved and since we've already been fingerprinted, we are officially on the waiting list for a baby!

Psalm 5:3
In the morning, O Lord, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait in expectation.

We are definitely waiting in expectation! What a great birthday week!!!

Happy Birthday to Me

This post is for JH. Not much is going on here at all! We heard this week that our homestudy should be in the Dillon office sometime this week, SO we'll officially get to be on the waiting list finally!!! It's weird, b/c I know that at some point we are going to have a baby. We have no idea when though, so it's sort of hard to plan right now! I feel that I have been nesting lately though! I've cleaned out the place where the baby is going to sleep. I keep looking in the baby dept at stores, just to see if they have anything we'll "need" for a new baby! We'll probably be ready for a baby waayyy to early!

So since I'm sharing things today....I'll share this. I love to decorate! I love shopping around, hunting for the perfect accessory, etc. Today I'm redoing our guest bedroom. I found the perfect sheets to go with the bedset that I got from my mom. And I found a cute "american" duck to go with it. The whole room will soon be transformed.

And now I'll leave with a quote that I saw on a show about adoption. It goes somewhat like this.

"This child will give me more than I could ever think to give him or her."

We still haven't heard anything about our homestudy. It's a little frustrating. Okay, well a lot frustrating! It's been over a month and a half. SO I guess this means that we're half way to the 90 day mark they say it could take to get the homestudy approved. We were just really hoping to hear something last week and heard nothing.

We are having a massive yard sale this weekend at my sister in law's house. Hopefully we'll make enough to cover the cost of a few things we need to get done around the house. My whole family has contributed to it. Without all their stuff I'm sure I wouldn't even have enough stuff to have even a small sale!
