And we wished she was with us on this beach vacation!!! We can't wait to share our vacations together as a family, there's so much fun for kids at Pier Park and a gorgeous State Park with a beautiful beach! Of course I did some Ellie shopping! We purchased "Life is Good" t-shirts, one of them has written "Flower Child" which "Hua" means flower, and a daisy is my favorite flower... Cool, huh? And Brian chosen the second one "Little chick"- too cute! And I could not pass up the HUGE Carter's store, which I purchased a outfit for next summer, and her first hair bows! That was all my Ellie shopping!

I know I've been lacking in the blogging area this past month, and I need to update our progress. Everything has been going extremely well, Cathwel received all of our legal documents for court and now we wait for a hearing date. It may be 2 to 4 weeks or longer, but Cathwel is AWESOME, so I feel we will receive our court hearing soon. It would be a wonderful present for me on my birthday to receive word of our hearing date!! So, once we receive hearing date, things will move a little faster- but there my be a good chance we may not receive word of the hearing date, 2nd hearing or final!! We may just get a phone call to travel to bring Ellie home! At this moment, I just can't wait to see an update pictures of Ellie to see her changes & charts! Just living day by day!
Yesterday was a special day for me. I feel like I'm pregnant and I'm going to be a mother for the very first time!!! It's a great feeling to know in a few months I will have her in my arms forever. Then, I started to think about the sweet stuff about her, how will it sound to hear her call me mommy or Brian daddy? Or how will her voice sound? Squeaky and cute? Or a little Asian girl with a southern accent? which I predict will happen...too cute! Or will she be another monkey like the other bloggers' I follow? It amazes me how the little Asian girls climb, climb, and climb! I haven't seen too many boy climbers like the girls! I'm hoping that the time with her as a baby doesn't disappear too quickly, and we get to experience the baby, baby stuff.
We have hung Ellie's wooden letters up in her room, and they look super! So, Ellie's room is official completed, and it's beautiful!!! Now, we only need Ellie in the room!!!
Brian & I will be traveling to Florida for our last vacation together as a couple this weekend, but I bet we will be talking about Ellie, and wishing she was apart of this trip!!! We can't wait to share the world with her, especially through her eyes! Wow, what a day that's going to be!
