Matt and I have been enjoying spring so far. This week I was on spring break and I really needed a break. It felt so good just to be home and accomplish my to do list. I did some deep spring cleaning, organized closets, painted some furniture for the nursery, planted flowers, and of course worked on masters stuff. Matt Troyer finished our closet this week! It is awesome! So big and it is already filled. I got rid of a lot of clothes and shoes that I had not worn in a really long time!
My grandma finished our nursery bedding. It is BEAUTIFUL...I LOVE IT so much! I cannot wait for our little one to be in the crib. Inna, social worker at Kids First, emailed and told me that a birth mom called yesterday and wants to set up an appointment. She has had several appointments set up with other moms, but they end up not showing up, so I am praying that this is our mom and that she will show and talk with Inna. So please pray!!! As you can probably tell by my earlier post, I have been struggling with this whole waiting thing. It feels like time goes by so slow and that it will not happen. But this week, I feel hopeful again and refreshed. I think it was just the break from school (not that I don't love my job because I do), but it made me do a lot of praying and talking with friends and I feel so much better. It will happen I just have to be patient...so hard sometimes you know.
Matt and I really enjoyed going home for Easter. We were able to see my family and his in really one night and two days. It was a little busy, but it felt so good to see everyone. Easter at Matt's grandma's house was wonderful. The sun was out and it was warm. The little ones were hunting Easter eggs and the boys were playing baseball. It felt really nice to be with everyone and see all the adorable little ones enjoying Easter.
Liberty turned 3 on March 27, so of course we had a little treat for her. I cannot believe she has turned 3. When Matt and I moved into our home, she was this tiny little puppy. She is such a sweet little dog and she brings so much happiness to us. She will be a great big sister. She practices with little Oliver and Lincoln all the time. She gives lots of kisses and just sits by them while they play. Although, she is not sure if she wants them to touch her.
We will keep you in touch if hear anything about our little one. Pray that a birth mom comes in and talks with Inna! Love ya!
