I'm not sure that I even nested this much with my other two children! We are having to switch bedrooms all around. We painted our downstairs guest bedroom orange to house our son. Yes, that's his favorite color. Then we sorted through every item in his room, I think it was like four trash bags and three Goodwill bags. Then we hauled it all downstairs. We need to hang all of his favorites up on the wall and then we're done.

So that room went from green to orange, now his old room will go from orange to green. Go figure. Then Noelle will move in there and her room will go to number three! She is in a hurry for us to get started but I said I needed to take a break and work on adoption papers. I really thought that I would be able to just stick that Liberia dossier right back in the mail. No such luck! Some of our documents expire in July- September so we are being asked to completely update our home study. Also, the dossier, in general, for Ethiopia is much more involved than for Liberia. I just mailed off to documents to be authenticated by the secretary of state! We are still waiting for our I-171H to be returned reading Ethiopia not Liberia.

This process seems even more intimidating than before. I suppose it's because #3 is waiting for us, and we are so waiting for her!!

Yeah! Ok, I can't get the rss feed to work on your blog b/c apparently, your lilypie thing takes over! So, for that reason, I haven't been by! I know, I'm a loser of a friend!

Yeah! I Love that you're nesting and can't wait to see pictures of the new rooms! She'll be here soon!
