August ICLW

Hello to those of you participating in ICLW!

Just a quick blurb on me.

My husband and I are approved to adopt and are waiting for "The Call".  Have questions?  Feel free to ask - I love talking about [most] aspects of our story and definitely about adoption.

I love cats.

And chocolate.

I am currently eating on Organic Soy-Free Swiss Milk Chocolate bar - it's my drug of choice during PMS.  I can't eat soy, amongst many other things, so I was very happy to find this bar.

I recently turned 31.  I was told it would be harder than turning 30, but 31 was pretty much a non-event for me.  Once upon a time I "planned" on being done having kids by age 30.  Bwahahahahaha!!!!!  Ultimately, though, I'm glad God is in charge because I think He knows what He's doing a whole lot better than me. 

What do you think of this idea?

Do you scrapbook?  I do, and make cards, and stamp, and I love it all!  This is my most recent completed page, pretty much baring my heart.

Is anybody else like this?  I find myself obsessing about all things baby-related - the clothes, oh, the adorable onesies and shoes, and the how-to take care of a baby books, and looking at pins for ideas on decorating a nursery, etc.  Yet at the same time I feel as if the pregnant people are stalking me, because they're everywhere, and really does every article and book and TV show and conversation have to include pregnancy, labour and delivery, nursing, and how nothing compares to said experiences??

I also love corn on the cob.  And tis the season for corn on the cob!

And I'm hungry.

And I'm like a squirrel, jumping from topic to topic.  Makes it more interesting for you! :D

Scrapbook Made by Birthmom for Baby

I think this is such a neat idea!  It is an article written by a birthmom about making a scrapbook for her baby for him/her to treasure when he/she goes home to the adoptive family.  All about her, the birthdad if she chooses, her pregnancy, etc.  As she words it, "ANYTHING I can write so the baby knows how much I love it".  Hubby & I would really love if our future birthmom would do this for our future child!

On My Heart

This is a scrapbook page I completed recently.  It sums up how I feel.
