Well, tomorrow marks the turning of another chapter in the story of our lives...15 months waiting for our Little One AND we get our new house! We're almost completely packed now...which was my goal...we wanted to have our house almost completely packed by tomorrow...so that in the next week and a bit we'll be focusing on the new place; cleaning; painting; and slowly moving in. We're pretty excited about going to the new place tomorrow, we actually bought the house back in August and we haven't seen the house since then. We do have some photos...but it's not quite the same!
We're excited about the move because we'll have more room and it will be a better home for our Little One, but we're sad that our Little One will never see the (first) room that we prepared for them. I have been having some trouble sleeping so the other night I slept in that room, and when I woke up in the morning, I was once again struck by how much I like waking up in the room. The other day Eric took a video of our house and hearing him talk about the Little One's room brought tears to my eyes...we'll prepare another room of course...but we're a little sentimental about this room.
In the past couple of months, there have been a few proposals and it is always exciting to hear that there are proposals in Quebec...I was especially happy to hear about the families who had been waiting for 23 months and finally received their proposals. And I have to admit that there was a point last week where I thought..."I hope we don't get the call this week because it'll be too crazy!" Talk about keeping yourself busy to keep yourself distracted from the adoption process! That moment was short lived though...don't worry...we are back to looking forward to getting the call! Oh and as far as their room goes...we're going to wait for now and once we receive our proposal...then we'll begin the room!

We're packing...cleaning...organizing...did I mention packing? We began packing for the move, by packing up our Little One's room...it's amazing...they're not here yet...but they have lots of stuff already. We want to make sure that all of the boxes for the Little One are clearly marked...you know...just in case we get the call.
Many months ago I began a quilt for our Little One's crib...and thought that I would make a smaller version to send to our Little One when we get the call. Just to be sure the quilt would be ready, I took a break from packing one evening and finished the quilt!
