Best Christmas Yet

First of all, thank you so much to all of you who made such sweet comments about our Christmas stuff and home. I really appreciate it.

I got some super duper exciting news today from our adoption agency. I was told to expect to be in Vietnam for Christmas!!!! Justin and I are over the moon excited right now. And a little overwhelmed and freaked out. I will fix the counter above tomorrow to be counting down to Christmas. I can't get my computer to cooperate for the moment. Just so you know though, it would be at 40 days right now. So, starting at midnight, we are in the 30s!!!! Can you believe that?? Less than 40 days left until we meet Little Lucy!! I really really need to start getting us ready to have a 5 month old in our house.

I made a pre-adoption appointment with a local international adoption pediatrician. We will use him until we get all settled and Lucy checked out, then we will change to a closer pediatrician. This doctor is about 45 minutes out of town. I have a list of about a million questions, so I hope he is ready for us. He seemed wonderful on the phone and has come highly recommended. He has two daughters adopted from China.

Also, I decided since we will most likely have Lucy on Christmas day in Vietnam, that she would need a Christmas dress. I have found some wonderful ones. I have not been able to decide which one is my favorite yet. They are all little smocked dresses. Too cute. Lucy's closet continues to grow. We are supposed to get an updated weight this week. And the new pictures. I will believe it when I see it. I sure do hope that the clothes I have been buying will fit our pumpkin. I am pretty certain that they will.

Okay, I am about to start reading my books on caring for an infant. I have some preparing to do!!!!!! This is going to be the best Christmas ever.

I was thinking that some people might see being in a foreign country at the end of Dec where people don't celebrate Christams as a negative.
Good for you for embracing the idea with excitement and joy!!
