We are now on week eleven, waiting for our sweet baby boy! I mean, I'm not eager or anything...my phone could ring any minute and it could be Mary telling me that she has a picture of our CHILD, that our lives are going to be FOREVER changed, that we are mere weeks away from meeting a little boy that we have loved for almost a year....but whatever, I'm easy breezy. :)

For most of the time we have been officially on the waiting list, it has been smooth sailing. I am not sure if it is because Eric and I are both super laid back and easy going or if the Lord has just been gracious, but we have been pretty calm, just going through our busy everyday stuff, but now, NOW, I am getting antsy! I think it is because I know that any day my little cell phone is going to ring and it will be "the call". For so long we knew of multiple families ahead of us in line for their baby boys, and so I was never anxious when the phone rang or anything, but now those people have received their referrals and it's just us! Obviously, there are people that I don't know about and those who don't have blogs and such, but according to those that I have been stalking...we are SOOO close!

Does anyone remember the song from the 80's by Run DMC that has the line in it, "Mary, Mary, why you buggin'? Mary, Mary, I need some huggin'."

That stupid lines goes through my head way too often as I wait for her to call. So Mary, if you are reading this....Why you buggin'? I need some lovin'!!

i seriously just heard that song on the radio today, NO joke. that's so weird and also a sign i think. a sign that mary is in fact buggin' and a sign that there will indeed be huggin' in the near future!

...we should have a dance party soon...

That is funny! Your phone will ring soon and I can't wait to read about it:)

You, my friend, are hilarious. :)

When I saw the Run DMC picture I wondered to myself..."where is this going?" My first thought was Runs House... Isn't Rev Run from Run DMC? Don't play like you don't know what I am talking about either.

I am so excited that you are at week 11....I CAN"T WAIT until you get that dang call from Mary Mary! I mean I really can't wait....My excitement for you guys is right up there with the excitement we felt when we got the call about Silas.

Ohhhhh Malak, come out come out, where ever you are!

PS I am still in Iowa until Sunday. Lunch next week for sure though......

Oh I know that feeling! We only waited 1 month, but since I knew we were first on the list, I was waiting for that call every day.

I've been totally stalking you guys - I feel it - it's close!! :) I was stalking another blog recently and then my internet went down and they got their referral. Same thing happened with Jocelyn & Pacey's referral. Sooo, if my internet goes down again, I'll know your babe is here! :)

I'm so, so, so excited for you guys!!!! I can only imagine how hard the wait must be.
A lot of referrals are coming through on the Liberia blogs I follow, so it feels like it's raining babies right now! Praying Malak is the next one on his way home!!!!

I know! (I mean I don't know, I am not waiting for a baby, but you know what I mean.) I was just talking to Trudi today about how you are on week 11 and that you could be getting your boy's picture any day! I can hardly stand it and it's not even my baby. I will pray that you get your call right away!

Gina said...

SO close! You are doing so good being patient! We are excited and antsy with you! Yes, hopefully next time we see you, you will have Malak's picture in hand!!!

Gina said...

I'm all antsy and excited for you, too! I've been praying for Malak every day and checking your blog every day (sometimes several times a day) in hopes of seeing your new baby and being among the first to tell you how beautiful he is! It's gonna be SOON!

Christie said...

11 weeks, you're so close! I, too, can't wait to see Malak make his appearance! I'm still checking and checking (way too much for being on vacation).

I hope when I get back you'll have tons of pictures to show of your sweet boy!

That is hilarious. I think we are all feeling the same way...can't wait to get some good huggin to our kids! Hope you get the call very soon!

meredith said...

week 11, i can't believe it!!! any day now, friend:)

Laura said...

I can't believe you are on week 11 now! Wow! Seriously, any flippin' day now you could get THE CALL! AHHHH!! I'm stoked for you guys!

Gina said...

I have a prediction--I think you're going to get your referral on the same day that Kara has her baby. (Which, according to her latest post, means Wednesday.)

Wouldn't it rock if I was right?

iesha said...

BWAHAHAHA! First time reading your blog and I am cracking up! I am now sitting here in North Cackalacky with the Run DMC song in my head. I'll keep my fingers crossed and the prayers going that you'll have your referral any day. Looking forward to keeping up with your progress. We are getting close to sending our dossier to Ethiopia!

I appreciate you patience ... because I just get grumpier and grumpier! "When are they going to call!" Then again, isn't the grandpa SUPPOSED to be a grumpy ol' guy?
