Since we received our EP approval a week ago we have been very busy getting ready for C’s arrival. I know you might be thinking, “You have had almost 15 months to get ready? What could you still be doing?” However, there are so many things that can’t really be done in advance. Sure we can work on his room, but why have the bed made to sit empty for months? We have had the car seats for awhile but installing them didn’t need to happen until EP approval. What else do we need to get done besides pack? Here’s a sample:

1. Figure our insurance stuff with C

2. Get oil change and air in tires of all vehicles

3. Donate all the things we have “discovered” we don’t need during our nesting period.

4. Pre cook meals for the first few weeks home.

5. Get all needed supplies for C and his room that we don’t have yet

6. Call pediatrian to schedule first visit

7. Wash all dishes/sippy cups/bottles/snack traps

8. Double check foster family gifts are purchased and ready.

9. Order Korean won from the bank.

10. Get plane activities ready for C

I think you get the idea, and there are over 15 other things we are working on as well.  Now if we get travel call quickly all of these things can realistically wait to get done, but it would be nice to have them done before we travel.  We are eagerly anticipating great news in the next week!
