slowly, but surely...

A load of wash is in our washing machine as we speak.

Full of James' clothes.

It was so fun to pull them out of his suitcase and pull all the tags off.

They're little.  Itty-bitty shirts, pants, vests and socks.

18 months, 24 months and 2T.

Sure, they're not newborn sizes like when our biological kids were born, but (praise God!) the anticipation, hope, marvel is the same!  We can't wait to put a little body in the clothes!

I bought our first package of diapers today!  Pampers.  Size 4.  Oh, the smell of Pampers.  I also bought our favorite baby wash -- Johnson & Johnson lavender bed time bath wash.  We've always bathed our kids with it when they were babies and toddlers.  And I've promptly sniffed them to death!

Now, I'm searching for a wrap that can be used with toddlers!  I found this video on-line today and it got me excited to wrap James around JD and me as we parade around China.  Pretty cool.

And then JD keeps making these comments about James maybe not attaching to him for a while.  When I asked him if he'd wear a wrap (gotta love a man who'll afix his kid to his body!) with James in it, he says without missing a beat, 'Sure!  If he'll let me.'

Silly man.  :)

Then again...pray that James will attach to both of us.  We've heard stories of children attaching to just one parent and then it's hard for both parents.  Go figure.

  1. getting clothes out and washed DOES make it all seem so real. I have their closets started for our little ones and it just changes things when you get to that point. I can't wait to meet your little one!! The waiting is the hardest part. So excited!!!
