Alicia's sweet sister Ashley gave this to Baby Cassady, since elephants are our thing!

Oh Baby, do I have the fever!

As I said I would do, I now have two blogs. This one is dedicated to the adoption story and the other is everything else that is going on in our crazy life! It's

So, since we've officially been put on the waiting list, I have been dying to buy baby things. Now, yes, this is challenging not knowing how old the child will be, what sex, etc. but I am still obsessed with it! So... here is what Baby Cassady has so far. It's not much, but it's only the beginning!!!

This is the book called Tell Me Again About the Night I was Born.
It's all about a child being adopted. I can't wait to read it to our

This is the bib and hat that I found with elephants on them! Since I am elephant pregnant ,I thought this was only fitting!

These are the booties that Alicia bought our baby.
She bought these when we decided to adopt.
She said she knew it wouldn't be long! Such a sweetie! :)

I have so many sweet people constantly asking me, mom, Adam, pretty much anyone who knows us about our adoption process, how we're doing, what all is going on, etc. It is great to finally have people talking to me about this and showing they care so much about Adam and I and how hard this has been on us. So, I have decided to make this blog just about our adoption. I will put updates, how on the edge I am about waiting, any news from Anne, etc. on here and then I am going to start a new blog in the next few days all about the other stuff going on in our lives.

You know, since we've kind of "announced" we're adopting it's amazing how many people are going through the same things we are and I think/hope this blog might be able to help those people with feelings that Adam & I can truly understand.

Mom and I actually came up with this because so many people are wanting to read about the adoption and I hate for them to have to filter through this one to find only adoption stuff.

When I get the new blog ready I will put the name of it on this one, so you guys can add it on your list (if you want) :) I will probably title this one Awaiting Baby Cassady and have the other one What? Life isn't Perfect? as the blog title as life with Adam and I is definitely far from perfect, but I wouldn't have it any other way, as perfect seems so boring! :)

Hopefully that wasn't confusing and hopefully you aren't wondering why in the world I am telling you this! I hate to put things on here and think I am boring people to death! :) We'll get the new one set up soon! (Yes, Alicia I mean we as in me and you. I need help putting one together again! :)
