I have posted a poll for anyone who is interested to try and guess when we will get the CALL for our referral. Take part and post a comment, so I know who is participating.

Another Referral, Another Step Closer

There was another referral given out today of a 1 1/2 month old baby boy; this family only waited 10 1/2 months on the waiting list. (The wait time has gone down; hopefully it goes down some more, since we are just over 9 months.) On the master waiting list we are #25, but for a baby boy under a year, I think we are somewhere between #1 and #3. Oh my gosh, we are getting so close! When we'll get the magical call is anyone's guess. Thank goodness I have caller i.d on both my work phone and cell phone. Thankfully, I never get calls from the 314 area code, so when I do see a 314 number, I'll know this is most likely IT!

1st Baby Product Purchase

This weekend we made our 1st purchase for the baby. Baby's R Us had an awesome sale, where you can trade in a select baby product of any brand and buy a select brand name baby product. We decided on the Graco Pack 'n' Play. We need to research car seats better andd check out cribs more before we make a purchase. It was either a stroller or a pack 'n' play and we decided on this:

We are getting super close! It could be anytime now. Yesterday referrals were given to 6 lucky families. I think a 3 1/2 week old girl and a 3 1/2 month girl and 3 baby boys: 5 weeks, 2 months, and 20 months and a sibling set.

We've been waiting just over 9 months and are probably anywhere from #2 to #5 for a baby boy.
