How I'm Feeling: When we were approved, we were told that the average wait time (meaning the length of time from the when a couple gets approved until they get chosen to adopt) with our agency was 2 years. One day my husband and I were talking and each made a guess as to how long our wait would be. He guessed 1 year + 6 months. I guessed 2 years + 6 months. Well, we have now been actively waiting for 2 years + 6 months and...no baby. So in that way I feel a little sad. BUT. The day is not over. God can do anything. The phone could ring in the next minute. Also, I really trust that He knows what He's doing and has not forgotten about me. He will do what is best for His honour and glory and I know that will be what is best for my husband and I, for our future baby, and for their birthparent(s). So I will, expectantly and hopefully, continue to wait and see what He does.
"The Lord is good to those who wait for Him."
Craving: It's kinda embarrassing how every time I write this answer, it starts off with "Well, I just ate..." lol! But, yeah, I did just eat some chocolate... :)

Most Recent Baby Purchase/Gift: My sweet mom-in-love (who is currently going through chemo but has only ONE more treatment yet!) dropped by a couple weeks ago "just because" to give me four sleepers she had bought for us!! That did my heart a world of good - to know that people are still hoping and waiting expectantly with us.
