gifts from his fairy godmother...

gifties from jen, canon 50D

He'll be our sweet little pea monkey.

And here she is...prrrr kitty!

jen gray...the fair godmother.


I'm off to see Twilight. My one last hurrah before we leave tomorrow morning to be with the birth parents. She is being induced next week. The docs are still trying to set an exact date but it will for sure be either on Friday, the 28th or earlier. We're all thinking it will happen naturally before then. We're getting little signs here and there telling us so. We feel nervous being at home, far away from the chance to speed her to the hospital, whip out the video camera and get the show on the road! ; )

So, after I satisfy my obsession with sexy vampires today, I am off to finish packing, cleaning, singing, dancing and embracing the idea that I really will be a momma within days. Okay, I'm tearing up now.

Now how about Jen's wig?

I have goosebumps every time I think of your blog. Have you seen the movie Bella? I watched it the other night and had no idea what it would be about; it turned out to be about adoption. I urge you to see it. I was bawling with joy and rawness at the end of it. Thank you SO much for sharing your journey. I'm sure I am not alone in being quiet in my own sorrow and hope along my own journey, and have found so much kinship and empathy through your wonderful gift of this blog. I am SO EXCITED FOR YOU!!!!

I check in here daily and I truly got goose bumps at the fact he's nearly here. I swear I can feel your joy and anticipation right through the computer screen. I think when you post the first photo of his precious face and we learn his name....well I will probably stand up and twirl about the room a bit!

You already are a mama, this has been true for along while...

I wore a wig like that to our Middle School Halloween dance. I hung icicles from the hair and dressed as the Ice Queen. I think I scared the students.

Honey you became a mamma the day you opened your heart to a new soul. When you invited that wee spirit down with love, trust & integrity you began the walk of a true mother.
Blessings to you all x

Hi Denise ~~ It's been a long time since I stopped by, but Darlene's blog today brought me running...

I remember when you designed my blog banner how much you were desiring a child, and how hard you were trying.

I'm so thrilled..... You will be wonderful parents, and you new little son is blessed to be coming into your world.

Love and Hugs
