When's the Baby Coming?

I think people must think this is never going to happen. I know Dennis's mom seems to be the most anxious. Dennis and I, on the other hand, are quite thankful to enjoy and take advantage of our time before the big change. But Yes, the baby is Coming, but with No Date of when, no information to show us who she is, where she was born, NO nothing. We're one of the many families in line waiting for their turn as well as the babies in line for their turn for each family to be matched together. Since the waiting goes up every month by either a half a month or a whole month pushing our referral date (picture and vital statistics of her) further, we don't try to figure out when. We just roll with it and tell everyone maybe the end of this year, perhaps beginning of next year, no worries. We are enjoying the experience of being expectant, adoptive parents.

We had re-filed our I-600A with the USCIS and got confirmation they have it. They advised we will find out if they approve us again in about 3 months. So all docs will be up-to-date for another year at least.

Time flies, we're already at the end of May already. In a few days I'll be 40, seems so weird, but really a great new beginning.

And speaking of babies, our cat, Daisy, went again to LSU. Saw a different doctor there this time and she as well as us have not seen any indication of fleas. We're going back to another allergy test, starting over again. Of course, they have to knock her out to take her blood to do that. In addition to giving her steroids orally every other day, she got another prescription to "hopefully" be a long-term fix, but that medication is every day. All this along with her allergy shots as well...a lot of screaming going on in the house...she's very loud and dramatic. Speaking of dramatic, doctor really recommends that we try the E-collar again. She probably is making it worse by licking, biting, and scratching. We were really nervous she would start thrashing herself around again, but she didn't. She actually walked around very dignified with her little E-collar on. We have to watch her the entire time, because she trips, falls, you name it, can't function too great with it. She gets a break from wearing it until she starts the licking, biting, and scratching. Enjoy the pics of her with it on. It's so much better in person...a really good laugh.

For Memorial Day, we grilled out. Dennis really wanted a chocolate cake, his favorite, so we baked it, cooled it, iced it, and put it together, but kind of the wrong way and should have left it the wrong way. Between Daisy this week and the cake, I still can't stop laughing. So enjoy the picture of the wonderful cake as well.

Hope everyone gets as good of a laugh with these pics as we did!

Pin It!
