Getting the room ready


I finally found the loft I had been looking for on Craigslist and it was even located inOconomowoc so we didn't have to go far to pick it up. So Jeffrey, Jaymie and I spent the evening figuring out how to put this loft, that the previous owner made from scratch, together. I will admit, we had to flip boards around more than once after we had them screwed in and unscrew some bolts more than twice, but the finished product turned out perfectly and Jaymie was thrilled. We plan on having "jr" share a room with Jaymie after he sleeps with Jeffrey and I for a year or two or three! For those of you who know me well, you know I practice that attachment parenting pretty intensly! :) Anyhow, Jaymie decided to go with a pink plaid comforter and Jr will have the same in blue plaid. So i will have to paint 2 walls in the colors of jr's comforter, and Jaymies 2 walls are already in the colors of her comforter. So the nesting has begun. I added a pic of Oscar. Doesn't he just look like he needs another kid in the house to play with? He is such a good boy!, except for the fact he does not like the command "come". We continue to work on that.

update

Our paperwork is now on its way to the embassy and state. This will have a 2 week turn around and then it will be mailed back to our international agency. There is a 1 day turn around at our international agency and it's off to Ethiopia. Then we are OFFICIALLY on the WAITING LIST. I'll let you know when I find out what our agency says we can expect as far as a referral time.

signed, sealed, delivered

Well, Jeffrey and I and the girls mailed off the dossier today. It was a huge weight off our shoulders! It wasn't too difficult to get together, just a lot of keeping it all organized. Once our international agency gets the package, I'm sure they will let us know what the next step is and what our referral wait time looks like for a toddler boy. I'll keep this blog posted!!
