We're making progress...

on both the house front and the Emma front :)
First off... guess who has a new bed??? Emma!! Our hefty (4lbs 12oz) little girl is now in an open crib :) She looks like such a *normal* baby in it, I love it, and the best part is you can just pick her up and cuddle her whenever you want :) We also had our car seat installed today, which means we're one step closer to bringing her home!!
We also stopped by the house today and were super surprised to see how much is done. All the tile is in, though it hasn't been grouted, and the walls and trim is painted! They've moved our closing up 9 days, which is still 2 months from now, so I'm working on having them move it up even more... we'll see what happens :)
Enjoying some snuggle time with Grandpa
and Grandma
dinner time!
and a nice after dinner nap :)
her big girl crib!
it's ready and waiting for her (and don't worry, I'll clean all the crap out of the car before then)
