i know i have been absent for longer than i care to admit but it is for a GREAT reason. we are done! done with the paperwork, done with the interviews, done with the home visit! we are now waiting to be officially approved then we can join all the other waiting families! it feels amazing to know that we have done everything we can do to hurry this process along and that the rest is completely in God’s hands. i know that this is the point He has been leading us to for the last few years and it is incredible to see all that He has done.
so, i have decided to be productive while we wait. first off, i want to be prepared for when we get THE CALL. the item we will need first is a car seat. i went with my mom to test drive a few travel systems and i was so surprised at how heavy those things are. i mean they are a beast! now i am only five foot nothing who drives an suv, so i know i need all the help i can get. i really liked this thing.
it is so lightweight, folds up really easily, and the basket is huge! but what sealed the deal for me was when my friend ran over hers with her car twice and it stills works beautifully. so if this is what i want, then i will need a graco snugride carseat like this.
we plan on using dr. brown bottles and similac formula but im lost on diapers. are yall brand snobs or do you buy whats on sale? ive heard of some babies being allergic to some, so we will deal with that if it happens.
and ive saved the best for last. baby names. i love names and their meanings. we think we have two girl names to choose from but are really slim when it comes to boy names. we have been looking through some geneology stuff and asking family members about old names. we have a few to choose from (boy and girl) but would love to hear what yall think! thanks for traveling this road with us and for your advice!
