In Which Connor Is A Sleepy Boy

Connor had another good day today, though this afternoon he was in a super sleepy mood.  He didn't nap during his quiet time, but when it was over and I brought him out into the living room, ten minutes later he was slumped over the arm of the couch, fast asleep.  I lay him down and covered him with a blanket, and he spent the next two hours snoozing away.

Surprisingly, he actually went to sleep tonight, too.  So this will be a short blog as I'm going to take advantage of it.  I have an away bout with my roller derby team down in Salem, Oregon this weekend, so I want to get some sleep! 

In other news, we scheduled our homestudy update visit today, and we'll be meeting with our social worker in early November as the last step of renewing our immigration paperwork for Ellen.  December will mark one year since we filed our immigration paperwork, and so we need to renew it before it expires and we have to repeat the process.  We're really hoping that this will be the only time we'll need to renew her paperwork and that we'll be bringing her home some time in 2012, but we don't have any news and unfortunately the current flooding in Thailand is likely to stretch out the wait times even longer as the government struggles to cope with the disaster.  In mid-November, our dossier will have been in Thailand nine months.  The earliest we could possibly hear anything would be around next March, but it's more likely we'll get word closer to the two year mark than the one year. 

So in the meantime we'll be filling up the waiting by sending her care packages; we have another one ready to go right now, but we're delaying sending it for another week or so because the postal service to her area is apparently currently shut down.  I was planning on baking some pumpkin bread for this package, but I think I'll hold off and stick to non-perishable items because I'm not sure how long the package may be sitting.

Hope our girl is doing okay!

Love that pic of Connor sleeping, but goodness isn't he a big boy now?
And I am in awe of your patience with Ellen. Even though she may not know it yet, she is one very lucky young lady.
