Surprise baby shower!

Today I had the honor of being thrown a suprise baby shower by my friends! It was so much fun, and the first thing I did when I walked in the room filled with pink and heard everyone yell "surprise!" was burst into tears. :) It has been emotional for me lately, and with our latest 1600 hangup (more on that later) I was having a rotten morning. It was so kind of everyone to be so excited for our family. Annelise got so many wonderful goodies. I will have to take pictures and post them all, and a friend took pictures at the shower, too. Annelise has more bows, outfits, books, bibs, burp clothes, and two of the cutest little girl towels for after bathtime I have ever seen. And even a portable noise machine for travel to Korea - woohoo! And something really special was a gift certificate for a local photographer to take our pictures wherever we want of our family when it is complete with Annelise. I can't wait to have them taken! It was so fun, I am just so thankful for the sweet friends I have. Thanks everyone - It made my whole week brighter!

On the 1600 side I left a field blank, and yesterday got back a rejection letter from the lockbox location. BOO BOO BOO. I was not a happy camper. I fixed it and overnighted it this morning, so hopefully the delay it caused us will not be anything big. Probably a week tops. Praying our 1600 sails thru to approval now.

Adoption has so many big ups and big downs. It really is similar to being pregant, but I am thinking the highs and lows seem greater. So last night was a big down, and today was a big up with all the celebration over my baby girl. We love you Annelise, and there is a big group of family and friends that are just as excited to meet you as we are. Hang in there sweet baby, soon we will be there.


  1. Congratulations! So sweet! I'll talk to you soon!

  2. Your friends are so sweet!! It couldn't have come on a better day for you! Show us some pictures when you get a chance so we can all ooh and aah over the sweet little pink outfits!!

  3. How fun to have a shower!! Lots of fun stuff too. I'm sorry about the form...sounds like you turned it around super quickly. :-)

  4. Soooo awesome! Hey perhaps the photographer would consider shooting your homecoming with the gift certificate. My dad had one for us at the airport when we brought Lily home...priceless candids!
