I have been meaning to take a photo of these adorable cards. I had dinner with my friend Tracey the other week ( who I have known since high school :) and she had these cute little note cards made for us with Noah's name and the cutest little monkey! Glenn and I were both so touched by her thoughtfulness. So thank you again, Tracey!! We love them!!

Since we got our referral of Noah, we really have not done much shopping. We are extremely fortunate to have all of my nephew Jack's hand-me downs and my sister has already brought over three giant containers of clothes that have everything from 18-24 months sizes all the way up to size 6!!! ( are we set, or what?!!!) Glenn and I keep joking that I need to tell Lisa that when she shops for Jack from now on that I'd like to go with her. ( hey...if the stuff is gonna be Noah's some day, why not try and get some input, right?) Anyway, after getting the current photos and height and weight of our boy, I finally got the itch to buy a few things for him. We picked out a few t-shirts and a button-up that looks just like something Glenn would love to wear. This of course makes us even more excited for him to get here so we can dress him in all his cool new clothes!!

What an amazing day today turned out to be!!! I got home from work around 5:30, stopped at our mailbox to get the mail and noticed a small manila envelope peeking out from under some junk mail. I noticed our agency's logo on it and almost immediately ripped it open, when it suddenly occurred to me that there could possibly be photos in there! I felt the envelope and it felt like it could be. ( I also remembered that my friend Angie had mentioned some time ago that our agency director was going to Korea in May and that maybe I would get some updated photos. The thought crossed my mind about a week ago, and since the month is just about over, I figured that we probably wouldn't be getting any. ) So.......as I was pulling into our driveway, I called Glenn on his cell phone and said, "come outside right away!!!!!" I handed him the envelope, told him what I thought was inside and insisted he do the honors being that I had the pleasure of opening the first ones! And there he was!!!! Our baby boy looking so much older with his beautiful head of hair!! We were happy to have another photo of him with his foster mommy and a few photos of our agency director with him as well. Once we could put down the photos and get ourselves inside the house, we looked at them about ten times more and then I quickly called my parents to tell them the news. We went and spent the evening with them as I knew they were just as excited to see the current photos of their soon -to- be new grandbaby.
So here he is!!! These photos were taken just a few days ago, on May 19th. ( which is the day before he turned 11 months old. )

That's right! Our baby boy is 11 months today! Could we be so lucky that he will come home before his first birthday?!! As much as we are hoping that is the case, we aren't counting on it. We have been trying to keep ourselves busy with all of the things we need to do to prepare for Noah's arrival. This past weekend was filled with more painting. While Glenn was working on a mirror and toy chest, I was busy painting what will be Noah's bathroom. We are really happy how it turned out and even decided to hang some of the ETSY artwork in there since it matched so well. So.....what do you all think???

We are big time suckers for our pets. So much, that we don't think of them as our pets but our little furry children. When we got Simon in September, we swore he would not be sleeping on our bed. But let's face it...who were we kidding?!!! Who can resist that furry little face?!!! He is definitely a big fat bed hog, but eventually he always wants his own space and jumps down into his own doggie bed. All I know is that it's going to be a tight squeeze with two adults, one puppy, one baby and my big 'ole body pillow that I can't sleep without!... all fitting in a queen size bed to snuggle! ( and that's not counting the two cats popping on up to say hello!)

Glenn and I both feel so blessed to have women in our lives who are not only our "Moms" but also our friends. As a soon-to-be first time Mom, I can only hope that I do half as good a job as our moms did. ( I mean, hey!...we turned out pretty darn good, right?!!) Noah is going to be one lucky boy to have two loving grandmoms who both can't wait until he gets here. Happy Mother's Day!!!

Yahooo! Things seem to be moving along! In yesterdays mail was a letter from the National Visa Center stating that they were forwarding our documents to the Embassy in Korea. Sounds good to me! I was way happy to receive another update so soon. Let's just hope things keep moving along!
