Oh how familar that all sounds!!! Almost two years since our adoption and we are had to do some paperwork to get the boys US birth certificates. Yes, we've procrastinated. Just been loving on my boys since they came home.

Word of advice....do EVERYTHING you need/want to do now b/c when she gets here you won't do anything but LOVE her for quite a while. You two are going to be fabulous parents!
