Do You Know What Friday Means?

Friday means that tomorrow is Saturday and then it's Sunday and then Monday and then...dun, dun, dun, duuuunnnnn.....

People ask, "are you excited?"  Well, yes, but that word doesn't do it justice.  I feel excited about an upcoming vacation.

"Are you giddy?"  Well, yes, but that doesn't even touch it.  I am giddy when I get to see friends I haven't seen in awhile or it's Friday and we have fun weekend plans.

"Are you overwhelmed?" Yes, but it doesn't describe it.  I am overwhelmed when I have too much to do and not enough day.

"Are you impatient?"  Yes, but again, not enough. I am impatient when I find the perfect gift for someone and have to wait for the "special" day to give it to the recipient.  (Or, when my birthday is coming)...

"Are you ready?"  Yes, I am ready after I prepare for a presentation and it is time to give it. 
I am so ready to have the girls, but not ready in the sense that I have all the details worked out and I am going to be Super-Mom...

So what am I?  SUPER, CRAZY, OVER-THE-TOP, FLOATING, INTENSE, ETC, ETC, ETC, ball of hardly contained first-time-mamahood.

I have been getting a lot of care packages in the mail. It is such an honor to be able to take these ziplocs full of love to waiting children!

Because you were so good at identifying the last picture, who is this?  I am not going to say who I think it was, but my sister, mother and aunt, all thought it was the other.  I think they convinced me. :)

Please be praying for our Embassy Confirmation.  Our paperwork was turned in on Wednesday and now, we just need to pray for approval.

Oh, how I could ramble on to you today!  I am heading to Sam's Club and stocking up on diapers and formula, so I will contain myself.

Im going to guess this Adia again:).
Have a great time at Sam's Club. Praying you and Jon have a super safe trip to go get your little girls.
You will have to let us know who it is then:)

I am just grinning and giddy for you! (Though not anything like the giddiness you are feeling!) I was actually thinking of you this morning knowing take off is so close!

Just think... this is your very last weekend EVER as just the two of you. Wow! Last Friday night, last Saturday, last day of church... is your giddiness intensifying?! :-) :-) :-)

I hope it's Adia as I got pictures printed and used a Sharpie on this one that says "Adia". However, I'm not super convinced that we have it right. As someone else said, Adia's lower lip is fuller than Jada's. This baby might be lacking that fuller bottom lip. It just might be Jada... Wow, I can hardly wait to actually meet them and check out their sweet lips, noses, eyes, ears and all that God has created packaged in these precious girls in real life!

Super super excited for you guys! Can't wait until you get back "home" and we can all finally meet your girls in person. Is there anything yet that you need for them? Would like to sen a useful gift.

Todd and Teresa said...

Well, I think this is Jada. But, Grandma Shari is probably right. Can't wait to meet them in person!
