Log in Date issued! Woo-hoo!!

Slowly but surely, we are getting closer and closer to meeting our little guy!

Yesterday, I was notified that our LID (log-in-date) is August 5th.

Yay!  We are officially 'in' the China system!

Yay!  The new computer program did not kick us out!

Double yay for that!!!!

So now the new count down begins.

We are counting down until we receive our LOA (Letter of Approval/Acceptance) from China.

Lately, it is taking anywhere from 60 to 90 days to receive LOAs from China.

We are on day 12!!!!  It's a start, right?

I'm figuring that we could possibly be traveling to China sometime in January or February of 2013.

Interestingly enough, we traveled in February {of 2007} for Shea, and we traveled in January {of 2010} for Avery.  So maybe, that time of the year is when we are meant to travel.  (???)

Now that we are officially LID, it's time to think 'boy' in our household.....again.  It's been a while since we have had 'boy' stuff and 'boyishness' 24/7.

"24/7?   Like...ALL the time?"
Avery says with a bit of incredibility hedged in her voice.

(Our oldest sons are 27 and yeah, it's been a while....)

Time to get a move on with Liam's room.
Liam's toys.
Liam's clothes.


It's my understanding he likes cars.

It's a start.
Cars in the house?
And none of them pink?
How will 'we' ever cope????

We have started working on the 'girls' bathroom......
Need to make it a girls AND boy bathroom.

Here is our first step:

Thank you Pottery Barn for Kids!

I just had to purchase this:

Waaaaay cute.  Don't y'all think?
I can just picture our little Liam wrapped up in his Penguin bath towel......all cute and snuggly!!!

This Momma is getting excited and completely impatient to hold her youngest son in my arms!

Hurry on up LOA!!!!

Let's get this show on the road!
