Awaiting the arrival of Kaleb....

Well everyone,after almost 8 weeks Kaleb will be coming to his forever home in 13 days!!!!

I have read many comments and suggestions over the last 8 weeks. The various treads and wonderful pictures have helped me get thru these 8 wks. My kids have been laughing and making fun of the many hours that I spend laughing at the pics and reading about the havanese. I think they may be getting tired of me calling them to "look at this!" The new phrase they say to me is "STEP AAAWAY FROM THE COMPUTER!!"

The last of the items suggested arrived this morning.The Tagalong car seat (hidden in my closet) was very easy to put together as everyone said. I figure if I he starts riding in it from the airport than he will get use to it sooner. I also have a baby blanket to put in it just in case he gets car sick. Seeee I have taken it all in! I will take his carrier just in case he is too small for the car seat. Maybe once Kaleb arrives they will be so excited about finally seeing him in person that they won't realize how much "STUFF" I've bought( all hidden in my closet). I laugh because I've turned into the member that said she has a delivery daily for her baby.

THE BIG SURPRISE...He will be arriving April 6th, late evening. I'm going to tell the kids that I am going out for the evening. By the time I get home from the airport they will all be asleep for school the next day. They will awaken to sweet kisses from Kaleb in the morning!

Crate,beds,Tagalong,toys,blankets,carrier,brush,co mb,collar,leash,harness and bowls are all in place.
All I need now in my new baby,Kaleb !!!

We surprised our daughter with Henry this last Dec.
It was worth every penny we spent to see the look on her face!
Record every moment!

I can feel your excitement! I agree, your children will not want to go to school! Let them take the day off! Puppies do sleep ALOT..............., so let him sleep when he is tired.

How old are your children?
