It's been 2 weeks since we have asked for an update through our agency. They did say there is no guarantee the SWI will answer our questions and send us pics. We are just hoping and praying they will. Other families from this SWI have said that they got their info in 2 weeks after they requested it but for some reason I am just not so sure it will be coming. In this pic Ellie has a pained smile and Emma just isn't so sure about things. Their new Momma is feeling the same way as her girls. I have been checking my e-mails every 15 minutes for the last week- ugh!
We are moving all of Anna's things officially into the Anna & Sarah bedroom and moving things into Emma and Ellie's room. Taking down Anna's crib and making the changing table to hold baskets with toys and books. I couldn't believe how much stuff we have accumulated in the 2.5 yrs. Anna has been home. I love things organized BUT I am horrible at organizing.
I was thinking of purchasing some toys for the new girls bedroom. Sarah made it very clear don't bother Mom- they will only want American girls doll toys once they see mine! I kind of think she is right- for the first year we can play with all the toys we already have but they will quickly move on to the bigger girl stuff.
We moved the clothes that Sarah has grown out of into Em and El's room. I really want to get their measurement to see if any of this will fit. Last time they said they were one inch apart but I really think Emma looks more than one inch taller than Ellie. Ellie is broader so I may have to get a whole different size for her, who knows?
We are on day 47 as we wait for our LOA. I can't help but speculate... the more I do the longer I'm bettin it will be...
We are getting lots of snow, it is very pretty. Makes a person wanna hunker down and cuddle up in front of the fireplace!
