Having a Little Fun!

I am still waiting for a referral, and that has me on pins and needles. But, the coolest thing has been happening to me....I'm actually believing that I'm going to have a daughter soon. All of this time that I have been waiting, I knew she was coming, but I wasn't preparing.
Now, for the past month or so...I've been feeling the need to get ready. I have plans to paint her room sage. I registered yesterday at Target...that was a blast! I scanned to my little hearts content! Pink Explosion people!
Sophia now has 4 drawers, a tote and a section of the closet full of clothes sizes 12months to 3T. Tim added a pair of Disney Princess light up slippers to her shoe collection last night. I put all of her hair bows and baretts on a ribbon board and hung it on the wall.
I've really been having a lot of fun.

I'm so glad you are nesting and registering for baby things. It's about time for your own baby shower. It's definitely therapeutic to start unpacking things and getting everything ready. How cool that even Daddy got in on all the fun! I'm still praying that we'll all see the good news on your referral soon!!

Mommy Spice said...

That is soooo exciting! I can't wait for you!! I loved getting S.G.'s room ready. Sometimes I would just stand in her closet and look at all her clothes just waiting for her to wear them. You'll have to post pictures of her room and shoes...

Nancy said...

I'm jealous. You won't forget us when you bring her home will you?

I personally have not been having good days with this wait lately. Too many little girls in my room that are being neglected that break my heart, and make me think of Arianna.

One in particular one I want to kidnap and run away with.

Rachael said...

It seems like I've been reading your blog FOREVER! SO, it definitely seems like it's about time! So excited for you. Enjoy your nesting.

Oh I LOVE it that you are nesting! I felt so close to Lottie while I was preparing for her. I would read and do bible study in her room because I felt close to her there.

mommy2gabby said...

I have tears in my eyes! You know it is coming soon. We continue to pray that your princess is on her way to you and vice versa!

I love nesting! Can't wait to see pictures of the room and all of her really cute things!

Keep on thinking those positive thoughts. Pray and be filled with his peace and grace!

Hugs,

Oh how fun! I remember nesting before we got Mallory and it was just so much fun. I imagined her laying in her baby bed and how pretty her jet black hair would look on those pink sheets. You enjoy this time, Kimberley. Enjoy EVERY. SINGLE. MOMENT. I want to see her room. Post those pics soon. Take care, my friend.
