Still on cloud 9.

I need to write down the details of the call. But life seems to be too busy to even pause. Hopefully this weekend we will have a moment to write and reflect.

This Mama is headed to Ethiopia to work in a hospital for the next month. She is taking a little package for us. So thankful that she will get to see our boy and give him some cuddles from NYC. She will also get to see her sweet boy as they received the call the day after us! woohooo!

Today we received a little update from this Mama. She said our boy is doing well and that she was able to get some great pics of him. I can't wait to see more!

More soon.

Feeling Blue...in a good way!

So sorry to keep all of you waiting. We've seriously been in a whirlwind.
After getting the call yesterday at 5pm it has been full on... we've have countless calls/video chats with family&friends and we're looking at seven pictures over and over and over and over.

My little cousin and her husband are here (so incredible to have them here for the call!) and we are still in the middle of a trade show. We are happy and exhausted. Not much free time to do much of anything. I thought I would be able to post about the call from my phone at the convention today, but that was not the case. Sorry! I would have killed me if I were you. ;)

I can barely hold my eyes open at the moment. TIRED is not a tired enough word.

Sooooooooooooo here is the skinny (in brief because Mama is going to bed!)

It's a BOY!!!
He is 5 months old.
We are head over heels in love.
He is Precious. Divine. Gorgeous.
or as Davis would say "Awwwwwwwwwww. He's so handsome!"

Happier than happy.
And.
Wishing I could go to sleep until we have our embassy date. Not really, as I would miss Davis' first day of school, but kinda.
If you don't know what I mean, trust me, if you are still in the adoption process you will.

woooooooooooooohoooooooooooooooooo!

For Realz.

Number One.
Blue or Pink?

Davis still says baby sister with a little tone of exasperation in her voice as I think she's just as tired of not knowing as we are! ha!.

We will be at the NY International Gift Fair selling Wee See through next Wednesday so posting will be sparse. Yesterday was our first day and it went well but it was exhausting. Only FOUR more days to go. Six Museum shops placed orders yesterday which was wonderful and validating too. We were a bit worried at the beginning of the day that we would get no orders...you know kind of like having a party and wondering if anyone is coming? I'll post a pic of our booth at some point. It's pretty crazy because every other booth is color overload and we are all black and white.

Would be fitting to get a referral while working in the Baby & Child section of a trade show, no?
