In any case, we have finally submitted the remainder of the paper work needed to start our home study - it was about 80 pages of questionnaires, forms, acknowledgements, etc. The agency has also received all of our letters of recommendation, medical reports, etc., so now we're just waiting to hear from them! We will be scheduling our seminar soon (along with two other couples), and then our home study interviews.
In other news, we have been slowing purchasing baby gear over the past few months. We started out slowly with some cloth diapers (we now have about 2/3 of our stash completed!), then purchased a Pack n Play. We have also bought most of the decor for the nursery, which is dinosaur themed. Finally, we just ordered our crib and crib mattress yesterday, which are a generous gift from Tyler's parents, Gary & Kathy. We can't wait to receive them!
This is the crib we chose (Graco Charleston):

I also have about 4.5 weeks of school left right now, which is beyond crazy. I have three major assignments and a few weekly things left to finish up, and then I'll be done!
Finally, I have just accepted a full-time library services representative position at a public library about 40 minutes from here. I am really looking forward to getting some experience working in a public library setting, since most of my work (aside from volunteering) has been in the academic library. I will be starting my new job on April 22.
I'm a little nervous about all the changes that are coming up for our family, so any thoughts and prayers you can send our way will be greatly appreciated!
