We'll folks, it's official -
If everything goes as planned, a special someone will be born December 19th.
We have narrowed down our shortlist of names and I have one in particular I'm rooting for.
The best part of this pregnancy? No stretching, weight gain, random food cravings or morning sickness here - (okay, well random food cravings are actually part of my everyday existance) - but the absence of all other symptoms is due to the fact that someone else is doing all the baby making for us -
Four little paws will be scratching up our hardwood floors in no time, and I coudn't be more excited.
A few fun facts about our puppy process :
- We will have been waiting for 6 months before we get to take our little guy/gal home. It has felt SO long and we still have a few months to go. Our new arrival will come home with us in February if everything goes as planned. I can't imagine 9/10 months of an actual pregnancy.
- It will cost us almost 4 times more money to get puppy, than it would be to have a baby. I know over time, things will swing the other way, but I find it pretty amusing. (I'm comparing the hospital delivery costs after insurance, to our adoption fee.) Crazy right?
