We are going to China!!

We got word from our agency last week that our TA (travel approval) was on its way from China. Today our coordinator called and said our TA arrived and they had already scheduled our CA (consulate appointment). We leave for China on February 26th and come home on March 12th!!! We should have Pudding in our arms March 1st, I think. Woohoo!! Not only am I so excited to finally have travel dates, but we won't have to miss HD's 2nd birthday (on March 16th). Looks like she'll have quite a birthday present this year (although I'm not sure she'll be as thrilled as we are).
I have a feeling that this next month is going to fly by as we finish renovating our new house, pack up everything and move, as well as prepare our family for our newest little blessing. Life is never dull around our house.
Look out Pudding, Mommy and Daddy are going to be there soon!
*Edited to add that we heard from our agency today and we will be leaving on February 23rd...4 weeks from today!
