My man and I have been contemplating a nursery ... how do we decorate? How much is it gonna cost? How long before we have to change it to a big kid's room? etc.... So then the other day, I'm standing in Hattie's room, which is purple and frilly and sweet and girlie. Now, any of you who have spent any length of time with Hattie can testify that THIS is NOT who Hattie is! So I ask myself "self ("cause tht's what I call me!!), how long till Hattie is asking for a new room too?" Then it hits me, why not leave Hattie's current room the way it is and make it the nursery (seeing as how we are now 98.75ish% sure that we will be getting at least one girl) and give Hattie a new and improved - and suiting her personality - BIG GIRL ROOM!!!!!
Now this idea gets me thinking about WHO Hattie really is... she LOVES to be outside, loves water, LOVES to get dirty - especially in sand - and loves ocean animals. So, it occurs that a beachside/ocean/tropical/surfer girl theme would suit her perfectly!! Plus, it would be something special, just for her and made to celebrate the big girl - little person that she is becoming.
So now we need suggestions... we kinda have a few ideas and are really excited. My Mommy is coming soon for my birthday and that will be our project for the week. We want to get it ready and have Hattie settled in before the baby (or babies) come. So if you have any... bring 'em on! We are open to any and all ideas and would love as many of our fRamily involved in this as possible. Something special for our new big sister!!!!
Reply here with ideas or email em!!!
We love ya!

So, we met with Kim - the birth mom - today. It was a REALLY positive meeting and we are feeling pretty confident now that this will happen. She is still feeling that she will parent one of the twins herself, but the birth father has signed releases on both just in case! She is very sure of her decision for the adoption of "twin B" and has even asked if I would like to go to DR appointments and be there for the birth .... umm, let me think about that one ... YES!!!!! She even gave us ultrasound pics - Aint science great!!! So, it has been a pretty exciting day!! We will continue to keep ya up to date.....
Please continue your prayers: for Kim and the babies, for us to stay peaceful and for guidance and for our Miss Hattie to understand and accept and adjust to all of these changes!!
We love ya!!!!!
