So, tomorrow at noon is our "match meeting" with the birthparents. That, and the additional bill we got from our counselor today, reassures us that this is indeed happening to us. I am debating what to wear, while J is joking about bringing our beagle to the meeting because he is capable of winning anyone over with his soft ears and big brown eyes. Clio's birthmom has a doctor's appointment in the morning, before the meeting, and our counselor told us that we'll probably get an ultrasound pic tomorrow! :) If so, I'll be sure to post it for all to see. We'll also take a picture of the birthparents, since our counselor suggests that this might be the only time we'll have a chance to get a picture of them together (for Clio's scrapbook). Josh and I plan to go out for lunch afterward, and then to Babies 'R' Expensive to look for a crib (clearance!). I dunno, I think we'll probably just order the DaVinci Emily from Amazon (free shipping!), but I want to at least check the clearance cribs at BRU first.

Pumping: well, yesterday went well, but today my nipples are sore. No big surprise, I suppose, but I'm not sure if it's because I was too aggressive yesterday (I really tried to be gentle) or because I'm expecting my period in less than a week. We'll see...


  1. I'm so excited for you!!! You'll be much in my thoughts today and I'll be racing home to the internet after work to see how things went! I know you and J will do Spectacular and the birthparents will feel so great about you both. *hugs!*

    Cute crib! We checked out BRU's in-store options, and honestly just didn't like any of them. They have completely different online options, though, and we fell in love with one of those that was cheaper than the in-store cribs (and much prettier, I think!) So, don't forget to give their website a spin. The shipping is only about $30.

    Good luck today!

  2. Good Luck today!
    (Definitely take the beagle!)

  3. Good luck today!! :) And the crib is very cute.


I love comments! If you ask a question, I'll probably reply in the comment thread, and I try to visit the blogs of everyone who comments.
