“Cute! Cute! Cute! And her personality is a perfect match! She is constantly smiling and warming up her vocal chords with “Eeey, Eeey” sounds! And in between all the talking is laughing! She is very playful and outgoing and overall, an extremely happy baby! She has started making a small fist with her pointer fingers sticking out! I imagine she is pointing to me, to tell the world who her favorite person is! Did I mention cute?” –Joanna J

So this weekend, dad and Billie were in town and we had a ball hitting the garage sale circuit. Smokin' good deals.
We got this perfectly cheap rocking chair that fits perfectly in our nursery:
And this oh so cute bathing suit and cover up:
And this funky giraffe wine bottle holder for a buck: (I know, not a necessity, but we like it!)And this totally cute fluffy bunny for a quarter: (I washed it, don't worry. I can't resist most fluffy adorable stuffed animals.)
And although not a garage sale purchase, we found the right diaper bag that Chad or I can haul around, without frills or pink, etc.!
It felt good to get some great deals while preparing for Koko to come home hopefully soon. The latest word from our agency is pretty much the same for us, different week. We are waiting for them to gather all the necessary documents and information for our file to submit to the courts for a court date. We are staying positive and looking forward to the day we see our first beautiful baby in person, although the pictures of her are what helps us through the days right now...
Onward - smj.

CHAD NEEDS YOUR HELP DURING THIS DIFFICULT TIME IN HIS RELATIONSHIP WITH HIS MUSTANG.
Ok. On to other tidbits.
Finally. We heard from Jessica on Monday. She says that despite delays in the courts right now, they will continue to gather everything needed for our file and submit for our court date. That's what we need to get this ball rolling, a court date. She is great! She says - keep moving forward! Onward! So, please keep praying that delays can be resolved swiftly, for patience for us and all the waiting families, and that we may find peace in the waiting.
There's much to do!
