Asha, I am so glad to hear the m/s has passed! I cannot imagine how terrible that must feel! But at least it keeps you cognizant of the fact that there's a little bean healthily growing away in there.
Is there baby-etiquette about putting little girls in tights with flowy dresses? I am totally lacking in that area, I thought the bloomers would work as a diaper cover and wasn't going to bother with tights! Please let me know if I do need to buy a pair!
Elicia, I *know*, when we get the referral I am going to bug people by whipping her picture out at every opportunity!! DH was just saying this the other day!
You are probably going to frame her picture onto a keychain-that's convienient for whipping it out and bragging!
There aren't rules about tights , I just love tiny socks and tiny tights. Little socks melt my heart. You can always get those dressy socks with lace -girliness at it's best. IMO...
Anyway, exciting time ... Come refferal, COME!!!!!
Asha, you're enabling my craziness by giving me ideas - keychain? That's brilliant!! More exciting news today, I am about to bust with all this information!! Now if only I could have a picture to put with all of it....
I'd love to see a picture too. I'm just so glad that you know that she's all yours now!
I don't even know what to say really, Sandy I just love reading your posts and watching your excitement. Your thinking about the birth mother is sweet. And well, you're awesome. I can't wait till you get a picture
Sandy!!!! I'm dying here lol I wish I could give you a huge hug!! It is always so wonderful to read your journal, you can feel the excitment through your words & your tenderness and mommyhood coming out - you are going to be such an amazing mom, you really are!
You are SO sweet, Julia! I am so glad you think that, sometimes I have my doubts!! It seems like I have SO much to learn about motherhood! I'm hoping I'll stumble through it with a little bit of grace and dignity.
Thanks, Julia! I am excited to try and breastfeed her but also really nervous! Mainly I am not too worried about my milk coming in - I know that will take time, and I'm okay with that. I'm going to use a supplemental nurser to help with that. But I'm worried about her not knowing how to suck or not wanting to feed from the breast after so long without it. I think that would be heartbreaking! I'm trying to get a hold of literature that talks about babies who haven't ever had a chance to breastfeed, and how they do with it at several months' old. I think I'm just going to take it slow and see how she and I do on it!
