It's beginning to look a lot like a NURSERY!

Our Christmas present to each other this year was to get a head start on our nursery. I needed to nest! We freehanded birch trees on our accent wall and painted the rest of the wall a light blue. The other three walls are a light grey. We're going to accent the room with brighter colors - red, a more aqua or turquoise blue, a pretty green, yellow, brown. We're still trying to find that "perfect" bedding. :) It's hard when you don't know the gender of your baby! Or the age! We're having fun anyway though. Ben's mom purchased a rocking chair for me over the break as well and I love it! We've added a few touches to the room until we can furnish it so it is beginning to feel like a nursery. We can't wait to keep adding things here and there! Enjoy!

Our life in pictures.

We had to put together a "pictorial essay" with pictures and descriptions for our dossier. This will help our agency get to know us a bit as they attempt to match us with our child (although, we know the Lord already has that part done). :) Here are some samples...

The dossier is almost done! And once we send everything in, we'll just be waiting to be matched with our child! That could take 3-6 months, but we've been told it's usually one the lesser end. Keep praying! We're getting very excited!
