A lot has been going on the last few weeks in preparation for our new little one. We have moved Beckhem into Jayce's room. We bought better bunk beds (smaller ones, so that there is more room in the bedroom) and a new bigger dresser so that we could hold both of the boys' clothes. We also got Kai's room ready. I love it! It is pink (of course) and many other colors too, and it has cute owls :) I think she will love it. Then, today, we went and bought a van! I am soooo happy to have a nice "mom" car. I am definitely not one of those anti-van people, and I have been wanting one for a while. There is soooo much more room in it, which is exactly what we need for all the kiddos and their things :)
Since I last wrote, we found out that Kai is healthy and that there are no medical concerns. The doctor did say that she is b/w 5-6 mths and we needed to pick a birthday for her to reflect that. So, we made her birthday June 1st, 2010. She is doing really well and all the reports that we get say that she is happy, sleeps through the night, and is gaining weight. So even though we hate not being able to hop on a plane and go get her immediately, it is nice to know that she is being well taken care of until we can go.
We are still waiting for our paperwork. It is very frustrating because we should have had it by now. We were told that there is still a possibility of going before Christmas (for a Dec. 1st court date) but that cannot happen unless we have that paperwork. Hopefully, I will hear back from our officer this week about it and if not we are going to look into other options of trying to get it back ASAP. As of now, it is looking like January, but it would be awesome to have her here for Christmas. So, PRAY for that :)
The great thing about this time of year is there is sooo much going on to keep us busy and our minds occupied. We are busy getting ready for our Thanksgiving program on Wednesday at the preschool. We also are starting to plan for Thanksgiving, all our guests, the wedding, Christmas, and packing for Uganda. Jayce is playing soccer, which keeps us busy with practices and games every week. I have not been very good about updating this and am pretty sure that I will continue to be slacking with everything going on.
Btw, we got new pics of Kai and she is seriously the cutest! We cannot wait to go and scoop her up in our arms and bring her home!
