da crib

da crib, originally uploaded by shellipsm.

The stuff is set up - done FABULOUSLY, mind you by K and C, friends of ours, who totally volunteered their time to come and help out - you guys rock!.

I'm drinking some wine.

Narda says we can post ONE picture tomorrow on the blog. All future pictures will be on flickr for friends and family only. Flickr is easy to join, however, and just drop me a line to become a friend and family...


We may not get a chance to blog until LATE in the afternoon - we will be at the agency at 10:30am, and then we'll probably be heading home around 2ish, so I might not get on until 5pm or so.

I *might* get a moment to call cat at House of Miao or S at Infertility Sux (links on the side). So check in with them for earlier updates.

OK, off to finish my wine! *hic*

Shelli and Narda,

How wonderful to "finally" see a crib for your baby on your blog. I look forward to reading daily of your journey as Mommies and of course to see the little Princess! Mazel Tov! And I am sure when you see her face, you will exclaim "Shayna Punim."

Wow!!!!!! Not too much longer now. The crib looks awesome. I remember feeling incredibly moved when we finally added a crib to our room - for some reason everything really hit me then. Can't wait to see the picture tomorrow!

She isn't just cute, she is BEAUTIFUL! And you can tell she's smiling, even though she doesn't have teeth yet. She'll blow you away even more then.
