Another Baby Milestone

This coming weekend marks yet another Baby Milestone on our path to parenthood. We are headed to Nashville on Thursday to attend CHI’s Pre-Adopt Class 2 on Saturday. No, it doesn't take 2 days to get there, but it does take two days to visit my grandmother and of course the Bass Pro shop for Troy!! We loved the Pre-Adopt Class 1 and can’t wait to hear what this class has to offer. We also get a chance to meet our blog friends Keith & Becky, Jim & Adrienne, Michael & Carrie and Norman & Carey. We are also hoping to be able to meet Coby & Brandy, if they can make it. I know we’ll have a good time.

Now that we have almost reached this Baby Milestone we need to come up with a few more. We’ve had basically one a month and had hoped at this point to be closer to referral than we are, so we don't have anymore planned. I’ll have to get to work on setting more Baby Milestones for us.

Oh – well I do have my second Hepatitis vaccination on November 9th- Yippee – Uh, not really!! I guess it will count though – any port in the storm!! I will REALLY, REALLY be working on those milestones soon!!

I bet you all had a great time. I am so jealous that I did not get to go. But the drive from New Jersey was too far (LOL). I think it would be great to all meet up once the kiddos come home. Keep working on the milestones.

That is very cool that you'll be able to meet all those adoptive parents and fellow bloggers. We read many of the blogs you mentioned. Awesome!

We are praying you get your referral soon!

I'm looking forward to this weekend! I think your hepatitis shot is definitely another milestone! We have to get our next hep B in the next week or two as well! That has to count for something! :)

I'm so envious that you get to meet up with everyone fron CHI in the Nashville area! I wish we oculd have gone...but we really don't have family in the area to watch the boys and well...I doubt they would be interested. :-) Oh well, after we adopt we will have to come up to participate in the family reunions that they offer! Have fun!

Becky and Keith said...

4 days and counting!!! Thanks for the reminder (hahaha) that I need to get more shots. Blech. I do agree though - it is a milestone so add it to the list! We'll have to brainstorm other milestones - or just make ones up. :-) Oooo.. We have holiday milestones to get through!

I wish I could join you all in TN.. you're going to have so much fun.
I check off my milestones by creating lists such as 'things to do before trip 1' (start creating a lifebook, put together a photo book) - 'things to buy before trip 2' etc.
I'm very much a list person!

That sounds like a lot of fun. I hope you are all able to spend some time getting to know each other 'in real life.'

I think maybe I'll start working on baby milestones. Not sure what I can list but I'll give it a shot.

Have fun on your trip! How do you find out about these classes from CHI? Does it come with your parenting information?

Carey and Norman said...

We are looking forward to meeting in person this weekend!! It seemed so far away when we first planned to all meet and look how quickly it has come. On that note, keep planning milestones and before you know it....you will have a referral!

Wow, it's like meeting celebrities in person! We read all these blogs every day and it would be so great to actually meet everyone in person.

The one thing we have in our favor is that everyone may come to Walt Disney World at some point with their kids and that will be our chance to say hello!

Sira said...

Yes- we must ALL meet at Disney!!! Yeah for Gary and Rosalie! Have fun in Nash- Wish I was ther too!
