Babies are EXPENSIVE!!

Ok, ok....I've always known that having a baby is expensive....BUT I didn't realize how much it cost just to get the nursery ready to go minus the painting. Dan and I went to Babies R Us today for the 1st time EVER!! I've been there to buy gifts but being in there with Dan and shopping for our baby...way too surreal!! Let's just say I was beaming!! We initially went there to look at furniture. Dan wanted to explore what types of styles there are and what the cost is. It was a fun experience and I look forward to more trips to Babies R Us and wherever else to buy our baby supplies. The furniture set (a crib and dresser/changer combo) we loved, cost in the range of $1000 - $1200...EEKKK!! Soooo, since I'm "working from home" I'm researching crib recalls, crib reviews and cheaper places to buy!!

UPDATE on Journey:
We are in the process of having our birthmother letter printed @ a professional printer. Once they are finished we will mail it off to AdoptHelp. We are also working on who to contact for our Home Study.

Birthmother Letter.....DEBUT!!! it is!! Our LETTER!! I have spent so many hours on this thing that common words started to look so weird and wrong to me. For example, the word "our".....I kept looking at that word and thought "Is that a real word or did I just spell it wrong?" LOL!!

To view our letter, just click on the picture above. It will take you to my Picasa Web Album!! :0)

THANKS again to everyone....Family & Friends for ALL your support through our journey!! It means MORE to us than you realize!! Sending BIG HUGS to you all!!
