Before cuddly things...After cuddly things! It looks so comfy!
I can't wait to tuck and actual baby (instead of a picture) in that crib!
AnnaClaire's stuffed animals- Pinkie or Piggie (haven't decided yet!), Teddie, and LilyBug! (LilyBug is a new one that we got today!!! She's a ladybug chime stuffed animal!)
Now... we just need our AnnaClaire!!!!!!!!!!!
Last night was really fun!!! We stayed up really late though, so I was exhausted at swim practice this morning. Anyway, Deborah's mom made homemade pizza for dinner--so good. Deborah opened all her presents, she loved them all, then we ate while watching Just My Luck (I didn't like it. It is so predictable!) Anyway, it was still fun. :) Then we talked for just about 10 billion hours and finally went to bed but not for long because we had to wake up at 7 for swimming. After swimming there was a bagel breakfast...yum. When I got home, Mom and I went to Babies R Us to make a few returns. We got AC a few toys (a really cool turtle thing that you push, and the balls in it pop, and a little mirror) and the precious picture frame pictured. We ran into Toys R Us too. We found a few cute books there (buy 2 get one free!!!) and so got those. We also got "links" to attach AC's little toys to her Floppy Seat, car seat, stroller, etc. And we found these darling pants we have been wanting. (They match a precious onesie we bought last week.) We had initially seen them at Babies R Us, but the biggest size they had was 6 months. Here they had 9 months and 12 months. We got 9 months because the 12 months were huge and AnnaClaire is TINY! I have a picture of them to post, but I can only do it on the other computer which is broken at the time. On the way home, we stopped at Chickfila and got milkshakes. YUMMMMM! We came home and guess what Dad and I did?! Finished setting up the crib! (The hardware came yesterday!) By the way, we set it up in my parents room since the nursery isn't done, so don't think that green in the backround of the pictures is her wall color. Yeah... it doesn't really match. Anyway, I love the crib. The bedding looks SO pretty in it and all her animals and blankies match perfectly. I LOVE her crib. I can't wait for HER to be sleeping in it! We got our baby shower invitation today. I am so excited for it! 3 of our neighbors planned it for us and tons of ladies from our neighborhood are coming. It's next Sunday... I can't WAIT! I have a picture of the invitation... But, yet again, it is on the other computer which is broken at the time. I'll try to post those to pictures tomorrow.
Good, good, good, good, good, good news! As said on Rumor Queen.......
SN TA’sSeptember 29th, 2006
Several agencies expect to receive SN TA’s Monday.
Oh..... I hope AWAA is one of those expecting to receive TA's on Monday... And I'm hoping that we'll be one of those ro receive it.... --NO PROMISES, THIS IS A RUMOR! Day 51... It's about time, I'm ready to go to China!!! Anyway... I've had this gut feeling it will be Monday (even before I saw the rumor!) Oh PLEASE let us get our TA on Monday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Well... I'm just watching the Hawkeyes play the Buckeyes. The Texas game isn't televised because they are playing a really bad team. I don't get whats up with all this "eye" stuff. BuckEYES vs. hawkEYES? What's up with that?!?! GO HAWKEYES! (Only because I want any team to beat OSU, I don't care who it is.)
Whew... I'm exhausted, I'm off to bed in a few.
Oh, I forgot... We have had another *minor* name change on AnnaClaire's name. We are making the "H" lower case, so her name is now AnnaClaire Chenhui instead of AnnaClaire ChenHui. It really bugged me how it was like 2 two names smooshed together, so we had a "family meeting" and decided to change it.That is OFFICIAL (it's on the visa paperwork, so this is her name.)
