40 days and counting.....



It has been 40 days of waiting for our LOA...and I am going crazy counting the days!!! I do truly think it is going to take 75 days before receiving our LOA (making it around Sept 15th) but oh how wonderful would that be if we got it sooner...



Here are some updates from this past weekend...


As for the double stroller, I...yes...ME...was able to put it together Friday afternoon and the stroller is amazing! It is so easy to use. Francesca and I invited our neighbor's little boy Gavin to come for a stroll with us to try it out. We were gone for almost an hour because we were all having such a great time! The stroller is super easy to move and having two children in it that weighed around 40lbs each...that's saying a lot! (by-the-way the stroller can support up to 50lbs per child /100lbs max).



Francesca FINALLY went pee on the potty today...and I mean peeeeeeeeeeee! (lots of "yellow" in the bowel) I can't begin to tell you how proud she was to be able to "let go" and just "do it".


As for us, we had a quiet weekend at home. We went to Dickson City Days here in Dickson City to celebrate our town and have some fun. I left the camera at home because I just wanted to have some fun time with my family without trying to capture that perfect shot (plus I am so glad I did for I had my hands full of food, drinks, winning game prizes, and at times...Francesca herself).


Well, that's it on our end, at least for now. Here's to a speedy LOA for us....

I agree. Sara better be hysterical pretty soon. She is so stoic.
Glad you are having such fun with the stroller and Dickson Days. We spent DH's only day off at an auction and I really made out....
