What did you just say? (on two different accounts)

From what our social worker has told us - just this past Thursday - our home study has a very good chance of being completed by the end of this week! All of us busted our tails getting every piece of paper work needed and completed all the necessary meetings but I NEVER dreamed it would happen this fast! Now, I know that once the HS is completed, it must first be sent to our agency for a review and if it is accepted, we can than submit it to the USCIS along with our I800A application. If "this all happens" the way it is looking like it might - we could be LID as soon as Aug/September of this year! Is that crazy or what! on one more note, I have to share with you all a conversation I had with Francesca this past week...(here it goes)....

Francesca: "Mommy, what colors are your eyes?"

Me: "What color do you think they are?" (as I move closer to Francesca)

Francesca: "Brown! Your eyes are brown Mommy just like a chinchilla! Did you know Mommy that chinchillas have big ears too? They can hear everything. You too must have big ears because you know when I am being bold and you are not ever around."

Oh - how I love this time with my sweet daughter...

As for our Annabelle, she is truly my little shadow! Where ever you see me, you'll see her! She loves being with her Mama and I have no issues with that! She is still wearing 18 months - 24 months size clothing, but even though she is tiny...and I mean tiny..she truly can hold her own.

Well, that's it on our end. I hope you all are having a wonderful weekend and here's to a HS complete week ahead!

***I know many of you are curious about our move and how can we do our dossier when we are in the middle of a move and the answer is - or at least our answer is - we are NOT selling our PA home - at least not yet. Not sure when we will put it on the market, but for now, that is not an issue for us. So since we - no...make that I...know what needs to be done in to complete our dossier in PA - that's where we are doing it.***

WOW on the getting closer to being LID! I am still looking for the perfect shirt to celebrate Benjamin James - of course, now it will have to be an IOWA one! He needs a cute little T from IA!
