Well, a burst of engery came after a long winter slumber on the mountian of paperwork, I believe that we have reached the summit! And boy is it a beautiful view! This afternoon I got our last document off to AAO. They are going to be getting all of the authentications done for us this time around. Once those are finished, off to Burundi with the dossier! I can not believe that we might actually be this close. It is truely amazing to me that I might actually get to join the mommy club. I have been looking in the window for some time now and truely think that the door is opening slightly.
I am feeling better today I still don't have my voice back completely and I am coughing a bit but I finally have some energy!
Chloe has been sleeping in her crib with the front rail off, making it a toddler bed for a few months now. About 1/2 way through the night she wakes up and ends up in our room, we move her crib mattress to the floor by our bed. This way we still all get sleep, however it means a nightly move of the mattress. So we decided to bring back the twin bed and take down the crib, the mattress will stay on the floor in our room until she no longer needs it. I am hoping the bed will be cozy enough for her to occasionally sleep through the night but we will see.
This was her last night in the crib. She fell asleep reading the big book!
We eventually slid it out from under her but not before snapping a couple priceless shots
She was quite the helper getting the bed cleaned up.
"Yeah this will do!"
She tried to get the cat to sleep with her at nap time he did not agree with this idea.
The finished room, I love it but it really looks like a little girl room now.
I keep telling her…
Chloe has been "reading" for a while. She has her favorites memorized although it is not always easy to catch the whole story.
She also got a bicycle yesterday and she has taken off riding. Today we all rode all the way to the park and back and she did wonderful! At first she has a little trouble with the brakes but it didn't take long before she was riding like a champ. As she says "I'm a good bicycle rider now!"
