Girl Stuff!

I cannot believe it is only a matter of a few months until I see a photo of my new daughter. We started this process in August of 2007, and I have no idea where the time between then and now went. The wait has gotten really hard in the last few weeks. I guess because we are so close, yet still so far. Things change. Countries change rules. Time lines can really slow down. Anything can happen and I guess I won't feel safe until she is in my arms. I guess this is a normal feeling, but I am not sure if it is exaggerated a bit for me because of all the loses I experienced.

My Mom surprised me with some girl clothes the other day! Cute onsies with flowers. A few great jackets - spring and winter. Pink snow pants with brown and green flowers. Who knew snow pants came in colors other than black and navy blue! Cute shirts and an adorable striped dress! Oh, I cannot wait to dress her up!

Here from ICLW. How exciting for you. I love girl clothes, so much more fun then the boy ones I have been buying! My MIL had three boys and then finally her girl 10 years after her first was born.

Have fun shopping and dressing!

How exciting for you! My mom is sending me all sorts of baby girl clothes that used to be mine and my sisters. I can't wait to see what she used to dress me up in! ICLW

What a great surprise from your mom! While boys can be a lot of fun, let's face it, their clothes can be somewhat boring. I am sure you'll have loads of fun dressing your daughter when she joins your family!

Stopped by for ICLW. I'm looking forward to reading more of your adoption story. This is something I've thought about, but DH and I aren't sure. Seems like the wait can be excruciating, so sending you lots of hugs and hopes for your baby girl in your arms in good time. (((hugs)))
