WOW… For some reason, I am having SUCH a hard time updating this blog. My mind has been all over the place lately. Philip and I are both so busy lately. We were able to spend almost an entire week in Van, TX with Philip’s side of the family for Thanksgiving. It was so nice to be able to relax and escape from reality for a bit.
We had our home study exactly 2 weeks ago, and it went better than we could have ever imagined. It honestly felt like we just had a friend visiting… well, a VERY curious friend anyway. :) I’m not sure that I have been filling everyone in on all of our changes back and forth with age, but here is the final decision…
When we first started this process we said 0-3yrs. Then we changed it to 0-12 months, then 0-6 months, and now back to 0-12 months. So, the official age range is 0-12 months. Sheeesh. Everything is going smoothly and now all we do is wait. They told us that it would take 3 weeks to process everything and then we should be signing our license. So let’s do the math… 3 weeks – 2 weeks = ONE WEEK!! If everything is in line with what we have been told, we could be licensed in ONE WEEK. After we sign our license, then we will just be on call. They could call us literally at anytime… 8AM, midnight, 2AM, Sunday, Wednesday… literally whenever. That makes me SO nervous, yet really excited all at the same time.
Philip kind of had his “freak-out” moment about a month ago, and now he is happy and excited again. Now one week away, I am the one having a “freak-out” moment. I am thrilled at the idea of being a mom, but it’s starting to make me more nervous the closer it gets.
So, while we wait I thought we could all enjoy a few pictures from Thanksgiving! :)
