Waiting Waiting Waiting

Yeah, we're waiting for the call around here. We're getting antsy. And angsty. We just passed 13 months of waiting last week. I'd love it if we didn't make it to 14, but odds are that we will. But, you never know.

Anyway, in the downtime of our waiting, Micah and I have been talking a lot about baby girl. Here's how it went down tonight during lotion/jammie time:

Mom: So, what do you think we should name your baby sister?
Mic: BOB.
Mom: Really? Bob is kind of a boy's name. I mean Bobbie is a girl's name, so we could call her Bobbie - would that work?
Mic: NO. BOB.
Mom: Hmm... What about (insert girl's name)?
Mic: Unh! NO. BOB.
(Repeat last two lines seven times)
Mom: Okay then. But I wouldn't get too attached to Bob. It probably will not be Bob.
Mic: Yes, Mom, yes.

Later... in baby sister's room...

Mom: So, soon your baby sister will be asleep in here and we'll have to be quiet. Do you think you can do that?
Mic: *thinks with his finger on his mouth* Yes.
Mom: And, she's going to want to play with you and you can show her cool stuff. Won't that be fun?
Mom: And you can share your toys with her...
Mic: *silence*
Mom: Do you think you'll share your toys with her?
Mic: No. No. *shaking head*

Yeah, so we have a lot to learn about baby sisters and sharing. :) But, Micah is extremely excited about baby sister. He calls her "baaabeee" and refers to her room (which is NOT finished - or even started) as "baabeee's." He has also informed me that he is getting on a plane with us to go for baby. Uh... *gulp* How do I explain to this child that he is not going?

So, that's what we're up to around here. Waiting. Jumping when the phone rings. Buying girl shoes. That sort of thing.

And as always, pictures...

Oh - and a big shout out of Congratulations to the Bottomlys on their referral!! Yay!
