Getting Ready!

We have been trying to get ready for our upcoming trip.  Most of our tickets have been bought and hotels arranged.  What is left will be scheduled tomorrow.  We have made lists, organized, cleaned, and baby proofed.  We have started packing.  I can not believe soon we will be in China, half a world away.  We have arranged for people to watch the house and the pets and we have panicked a little about finally being parents.  I have De-Christmased the house and Jim is painting a canvas for Chloe's room.  

Today I finished a dress I have been working on for some time.  I guess I just need a little more motivation, like a plane ticket :).  The next time you see the dress it will be on our little girl.  It may be too big or too small I have no idea but it does not matter any more.  Our Little Miss is coming home!

I wanna see the back of it. Does it tie? I do believe it will be big in her BUT you are creative and are bringing safety pins so she will be just adorable!!!

I've met you guys IRL and I know you are going to be GREAT parents! Enjoy your last 2 weeks of being 2.
