3 by 3

Oh what fun it is to be preparing for one more kiddo. It's different than preparing for a baby... and it's FUN!!! Luckily I just "knew" we'd be adopting a little older boy one day and I saved Jacob's clothes from 3T on, so we don't have many new clothes that "need" to be bought. The only must get is a different car. I really like the car I have now, a Saturn Vue, but it doesn't accommodate 3 carseats very easily... so, we're going the mini van route!!

Here's a little prepping we have been doing. 3 is going to be fun!

New backpacks! Looking forward to packing the red and blue one with lots of fun things to keep two brothers occupied on a VERY long flight!!!!

Each kiddo has their own color towel. Easy to remember whose is whose. Easy for the mom to know who left their wet towel in a pile on the floor!!! :)
These pictures are hanging in the hall by the kids' rooms. I hung them a year ago. When I bought the two frames, I bought the matching green one..... "just in case". Now I get to fill it with one more cutie in the snow!
Now, all we need is the PHONE TO RING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

WOW! I didn't realize that you were on the list again! I was reading everything like a maniac a yr ago and when we came home in February my life drastically changed! ( a lot less blog reading ) it's nice to catch up with your blog - CONGRATS to your growing family.

What do you use on Gracie's hair when it's so big and sporting the beautiful spiral curls?

I can't wait to be buying for 3! Cute, cute stuff. Hoping and praying that your call will come quickly! In the meantime, thanks for all your help--you probably feel like you are paperchasing again thanks to all of my questions. :)

I am laughing because of your comment about the next vehicle!!! I can remember you saying something about "never" to a mini-van....or is my memory a bit fuzzy? BUT I am very excited for ALL of you!!!
