I know. I know. I've been a bad blogger lately. Honestly, there's just not much going on right now. Everything is still going great with the adoption. We're getting closer - only a month away! I've caught myself actually daydreaming and believing this is really happening. I've kept the entire idea at arm's length, not wanting to let myself really feel anything, but everything seems to keep falling in place. I even broke down and washed all of Baby Girl's clothes on Thanksgiving. Words can't even describe the crazy emotions inside me right now. :)

I'm not sure if it's anxiety, stress, excitement, nerves, or just plain genetics, but I can't sleep. It's gotten worse over the last few weeks. It's wearing on me. Maybe it's my body preparing me for what's to come. Who knows? I'm pretty sure if I'd hop on the treadmill for a quick run each night, it would probably help me sleep a little better. But who wants to do that? LOL At this point, I think that may be my only option. Not even sleeping pills seem to keep me asleep through the night.

Oh well. I probably should just get used to it. Lots more sleepless nights to come. :)


  1. It may be a blessing in disguise to get you ready for such an enormous change in your life. If you play Words With Friends, thats what got me through my sleepless nights (=

  2. How exciting! We've got just a few days more than you till we meet our own Baby Girl as well so I can understand stress and excitement. I wish you guys the very best and hope it's a wonderful Christmas for the both of us!!
