This and that...

Hope everyone had a great Father's Day weekend. I had a nice, long chat on the phone with my dad. He lives in NY, so we don't see each other often but I love catching up on the phone.

Joe woke up yesterday morning to a card from our furbaby, Lucy. I also got him a daddy-to-be card...


and an adorable book called Daddy Hugs by my favorite children's book author, Karen Katz. I can't wait to watch him read this book to Lauren.


As we get closer to referral I can see Joe getting more and more excited. He's been pretty laid back during this whole process, but lately he's been more interested in looking at travel photos on bloggy friends' blogs and referral pics. Also, we were in Target over the weekend and HE actually wanted to go see what was on the clearance rack in the baby clothes section!

On another note, look what I got in the mail today...


This totally adorable headband is a thank you gift from Emily (her blog is password protected), who I "met" through my Yahoo DTC group. She is in China right now and will have Ellie Lu in her arms very soon!

We have 'Counting Kisses' by the same author, and now Hannah is over some of her issues about being touched/held, it is a favourite!

Glad you got it...sent it prior to leaving...well almost leaving we are still in Newark, so far it took 2 days to get to Newark. Good thing we had planned for 5 days in Beijing now we will only have 3. Take care.

Ohhh, I just just FEEL it happening for you. Very exciting indeed.

How cute that Joe is joining in the fun of anticipating Lauren's arrival.

As I think about it ...I should have said taking more of a proactive role in "preparing" for Lauren's arrival.

Good grief, there certainly has been enough anticipation!! Hasn't there?
