Dossier to USAA today!!!

I went to the post office today at lunch time and mailed all our documents to USAA. It's such a huge relief to have that done! I sent it certified mail and requested a return-reciept. I hope they don't have any problems with any of the stuff we sent! My fingers are crossed for a glitch-free process until we're DTC!

Shaving the cat...

Tonight we put all of our documents into an envelope and addressed it to USAA! Tomorrow, I'll go to the post office and mail it! This is a huge step since it's the culmination of so much work all wrapped up in one envelope. It was really satisfying to put those forms in order and paperclip the entire thing and slide it into the big envelope! What a huge relief to have that done! Now it's up to USAA to authenticate everything and send it off to China. If things go according to plans, we'll be DTC on January 1st!

We bought a stroller

We went shopping with Matt and Isako today. We bought a Graco "Metrolite" Baby Stroller, a First Years "On the Go" booster seat, and an inflatable "Snug tub" baby bath. It was fun!

Today is our third wedding anniversary. We've come a long long way since our early crazy Hippy days!

The inspiration for the nursery...

I went to Pottery Barn Kids today and bought the toddler blanket we've been looking at for several weeks now. I think we'll bring this with us to China. It's small and snuggly and I think Gwendolyn will love being wrapped up in it! Last night, I threw it on top of my other blankets and slept under it. Today I'm going to take it to Home Depot and find some paint that compliments it and think about which walls in her bedroom can be painted an accent color. I'm not sure if we want to go with pink or green. Pink is very "girly" and cute but green is less predictable for a girls room and might knock the sugar level down a few notches! After we paint, I'll hand paint some details around the room. There are stitching details on this bedding that would look cute on the walls.
