Glimmers of Excitement

We got two emails today. One subject line says, "DOSSIER COMPLETED!!!!" The next says, "You are on waitlist!" with the four exclamation points and then the one. So after all the false starts, we're now officially 100% Waiting, capital W. Weird. Happy. As I just told my sister, "It's sort of like being in the third trimester now, just without the swollen ankles and stretch marks." Time now to paint the empty bedroom and set the little onesies out?

We're putting in a request for one who laughs like this:

BIG CONGRATULATIONS!! Could not be happier for you both, hope your third trimester goes quickly (or at least feels like it does). Love the video, my nephew Kody used to laugh so hard at our family dinners when he was little that he would have all of us laughing so hard that we cried, it was the best.
