Getting Ready

We got the great news this week that Baby Max's I600 approval was logged in and out of the National Visa Center and sent to the embassy in Seoul on Wednesday of this week. That means, if all goes well, we could be VERY CLOSE to finally having our baby home!

Of course, along with the excitement comes the very real panic that we still had a ton to do in order to have a place for him to sleep and bottles to drink out of. We spent almost all day today getting his room finished up, installing car seats and washing bottles, blankets, etc. We've been chipping away at the project over several weeks, but today really felt like the day that we could see improvement. We both remarked a few minutes ago that we're at least at the point that if our phone magically rang tomorrow, we'd be ready. Or at least able to pass a first post placement visit without being judged as completely unprepared and ridiculously disorganized.

A few people have asked what the bedding that I'm so excited about looks like. I posted a pic from Ebay a long time ago when I bought it, but I finally got shots of it in Max's room today to share. You'll notice there are still things that need finishing (like taking Sam's name down from above the window and putting Max's up!) but the room is definitely habitable now and, to my immense delight, looks different enough from Sam's room that I feel like Max is not just getting hand-me-downs.

Here's how we spent our day:

Scrappers... Do you see what I mean when I say the quilt reminds me of a Two Sisters kit?! I LOVE the colors in this bedding. I will be sad when he outgrows it.
