TA is on it's way!


ALL RIGHT!!!! GREAT NEWS GUYS!!! I was gone all day and an e-mail came right when I got home saying that TA (travel approval) has been issued and is on it's way. My agency should receive it on Friday and then they will issue an appointment request with the US embassy in China this Friday. We should get our appointment confirmed Wed, Thur or Fri of next week. Then we can buy plane tickets! I am requesting an appointment that would mean that we would leave May 21st. If I don't get my first choice we will leave the following Wed but I have high hopes that we will get our first choice and be leaving 3 weeks from tomorrow!!!! That would mean that we would meet Kaiya on Monday May 26th and come home June 6th. That would be kind of cool since that is the day before KK's birthday and my god daughter's birthday. SO that is today's BIG news. I will keep you updated. WOOHOOO! It's coming so soon! In 3 weeks I may be getting ready to get on a plane. In 4 weeks I may have my BABY! Angel

Hey Angel, just wanted to give you some simple tips for wearing the ergo! It took me three times of wearing it to find how to make it comfortable for me. First step is figuring out how high/low you want the waist strap to sit. I wear it higher, just below my natural waist, and I have a pretty short torso. Once you get baby in there, and the shoulder straps over your shoulders, pull down to tighten those straps as far as you can. The closer the baby is to your body, and the more snug the straps are, the more comfort for your back. I always kind of do a funny looking hop while tugging down to make sure they are as tight as I can get them. :) Then lastly, buckle the chest strap and tighten it until it is comfortable. You're gonna love this carrier! :D

Congratulations! I am happy you recieved TA but I am sure it was the song that caused it.
The little clothes are so cute, especially the Minnie Mouse dress.
Praying it all works out for you timing wise.
