Our original faboo social worker, Nicole, has a doctor's appointment next week, and *might* get clearance to be at the placement ceremony on the 16th.
That would TOTALLY rock. I am SO crossing my fingers.
And since way too many of you have asked, I'll get a list up soon, I promise. Having spent so long NOT preparing for a baby, we are slightly overwhelmed realizing that we ARE actually preparing for a baby.
We went to Buy Buy Baby last night and began looking around and registering. There's SO much crap you really don't need at those stores. We spent WAY too much time looking at clothes, and not enough time looking at crib mattresses, but ah well.
I WILL tell you this - We were told today that she is a) a GOOD eater of Enfamil with iron, b) getting a *bit* too big for her pampers #2's, and we should buy #3's (what does that mean?) and c) she's outgrowing her 0-3 clothes, and we should buy 3-6 and 6-9 month clothes.
OK - and we're doing the DR Brown bottles.
One thing I WOULD love to get going is a quilt. One where you, the big wide internets, and family and friends, etc. contribute a square each. 7 inches square, leave 1/4 inch for seam allowance on all sides. (I got this idea from a FF'er, and LOVED it, so I'm TOTALLY copying you, Angela, hope you don't mind).
So I hope that's enough to get ya'll going. We really don't need much, and we'd be VERY into hand me downs - all the stuff from your goodwill piles, we'll be happy to take - boy OR girl clothes, or whatever, it doesn't matter. We're just SO grateful for all of the outpouring of love and support. That, in and of itself, is overwhelming.
So thank you. Truly and deeply.
