A lot of our friends have been asking us what in the world we're doing to pass the time - this waiting is so hard!!! Our answer... not much. Sticking to our normal routines. Work, hanging out (trying to enjoy our last few days with just the two of us), I've been frantically reading Baby 411 (AWESOME book for new and veteran parents!), we packed the little dude's bags yesterday - everything's ready to go. Oh!!! And my glider for the nursery came in on Saturday (8 WEEKS EARLY - yea!!!)!
And... my big distraction for the waiting... has been planning our trip to Maui for the end of March! This trip was on the calendar long before we ever knew about our sweet new addition to the family... so we'll see how everything pans out with a precious newborn in the mix! =) Should be a truly incredible time!!! We'll be staying at the Grand Wailea Resort and Spa for 6 nights...check out the pics below - we're so excited!
And...before anyone gets up in arms about how in the heck we're affording this trip just two short months after adoption expenses... no, we did not win the lottery. This is a COMPLETELY FREE trip for us (which makes it that much sweeter!). Ben won this trip through work - I'm so very proud of him! It's a great reward for the many hard, long hours he has put in to provide for our family. And, we're getting to go with some of our greatest friends that we spent a year with up in Minneapolis during training. We haven't seen any of them in a very long time, and we can't wait to spend an entire week with them!
Ok... that's about all the distraction I can take... back to checking my email and phone every 2 minutes to see if we've received an update from our caseworkers! Hopefully we'll have exciting news very soon =)
