I think I might need glasses.

Yesterday as I was looking at the list for the one billionth time...
I noticed that there was indeed a referral this week! On Monday!

Dear Barrett Family,
First let me say congratulations on your new son! I hope the process goes quickly for you when courts reopen in October. Secondly, I must apologize for misreading your child preference profile, for some reason I only saw the AND sibling part....and here I've been thinking I was number 1 for a boy for the past six weeks, and number 1 for a girl for the past two weeks. DUH. Though it sure makes sense why my phone has been silent. I wish you had a blog so I could post a message to you. If you've been reading my blog and thinking "who does she think she is?!" well, that would be a totally valid thought. I'm even thinking "who do I think I am!?" I do hope you see my apology. :)

NOW....we are (un)officially number 1 for either a boy or a girl.
If you could see my face right now, you'd see it is beet red from the 'DUH! Heather!' that is rolling around in my head.

Anywho, back to the wait.

Hoping for phone calls for these two families THIS week please. They have been truly waiting at the top of the list for long enough. Unlike me who's only been there for, ahem, 2 days.

Today my baby turns four. Not sure how it's possible. We are still pinching ourselves that she is HERE much less four years old. She is our brightest light and keeps us in tears from laughter. I am so proud and grateful to be here Mama. Rolyn is so proud and grateful to be her Daddy.

Today she slowly stood up in bed so big and so strong. In her head I could tell she felt different. She felt bigger and smarter and more special that she did the day before. So awesome. I remember that feeling as a child.

As she was sitting at her new "artist table" that was her birthday prezzie (IKEA hack by Daddy, quite impressive if I do say) she said, "Mama, maybe today is the day that I will be a big sister! A four year old BIG SISTER!"

Me too sweet Davis, me too.

p.s. I am also thinking of all the mamas who are becoming first time mamas right now. I know it's an amazing feeling. There is nothing like it in the world! Congratulations to ALL of you lovely women. Hoping for good news from this mama today too! xo
