The fact that this post is marking 7.2 months waiting and not 7 months is a blessing! The 7 month mark passed last week with little notice of the milestone!
We are surviving this wait without losing our minds (even though it has admittedly been longer than we expected at the beginning of the adoption process)!
All that is not to say we are not ready, more than ready, to see her face, learn her age, and mostly to bring her home.
But we're getting closer.
And we're going to use these next few months without her to really get ready. I have a whole slew of projects in mind to tackle! Can anyone say nesting? Yes, I think it may not only be a pregnancy instinct but occur for pre-adoptive mamas, too! Feel very sorry for my husband! I'm broaching this idea to him tonight! A little Christmas break project! Hey, our current shoe and backpack shelf only accommodates 3 kids!! And the project does say it's for skill level: beginner!
