Yaaay! I was praying they just didn't get around to calling and it was actually in.
Anyway Faith (4) walked up just now and asked "what?" I said "that is Lucy and she will soon have her big sister home" "See there she is" and I showed her the pic at the top of your blog. Faith says"what? is she 2?"
Did you count? that is just about 3 wks, get those bags packed!
