In the light of things, we here at the Leonard household are keeping busy. Between the loads of paper work that has already started, the paper work that we need to tackle, my new business adventure, and our pending move (OK so I haven't pack a thing)...our lives are totally crazy right now, but I am loving it! The girls are doing well. We did sit down with Francesca this past Sunday and explained to her what was "going to happen". She is super happy! I so wish you all could have seen the smile on her face and how bright her eyes gotten when we told her the news and showed her some photos. It seems like it is all she is talking about now ~ which at times is bitter-sweet. She has been a tremendous help with Annabelle since our lives have turned up-side-down once again. She is truly the big sis who can't wait for....(well you know).
As for our Annabelle, she is just our ball of fire! She is learning so much every day and a lot of it is from her big sis. She has changed so much since arriving home back in November 2008. While we did also tell her the our pending news...I know she didn't fully understand - but she is just as excited as she can be (she kisses "the photo" and says "good morning" every day). She is just so stink'in adorable.
I did add a new piece to my Etsy studio ~ THE VINEYARD. I am planning on adding two more over the weekend. Business - for me - has been doing well. Since opening the doors to Mei Faith Studio (back in April) there have been five sales through the speciality shop here in PA, three through the gallery in NYC, and one from Etsy. I can't begin to tell you how excited I am that people are loving my one-of-a-kind creations! (and the sales are truly helping us during this time of need - when some very unexpected fess are coming our way).
I am hoping that by this weekend, I will have our Mother's Day photos downloaded and posted. Since we did hear hear back from CCAI...from what they said it could take up to 4 weeks before we might hear the official word that we can make the official announcement. Last time it only took 10 days...so that's what we are hoping for. This whole waiting is killing me. I what to shout it from the roof top, "We have a ---! Oh well, maybe next week...Hanging in there for now...
