If you build it….

After 3 weeks of construction and one year (at least) of shopping to pick out the “perfect _______” (Insert anything baby here… cloth diapers, detergent, theme, color)…  The nursery is done!

There is not much going on with the actual adoption.  We’ve had at least one more situation come and go since my last post.  I wish I could keep the blog up, but between work, family, events and emotions, blog posts just haven’t happened.

From the beginning of construction, to tonight when I applied the vinyl quote to the wall that reads, “Promise me you’ll always remember, you’re braver than you believe, stronger than you seem and smarter than you think. -Christopher Robin to Pooh” (don’t know if that was an affirmation for myself or for my baby…), washed the sheets and blanket for the first time, it has been an incredible time of nesting for me.  My husband thinks I’m nuts.  At times even I’ve thought I was crazy.  But seeing everything come together in the past few days has made me feel like this is right.  Everything is happening in the right time.  I’m more ready now than I was when we started the adoption process.  I’m more ready now than 1 year ago.  I’m more ready now than I was a week ago.  The feelings of “Mommy” and more importantly, “Family” keep getting stronger.

My actions have not been congruent with my thoughts.  And now everything is coming together perfectly.

Here it is, Universe.  We’re ready!  Bring on baby!
