Dawned on me

Did you know, we could "possibly" be seeing the face of our son/daughter in less than TWO WEEKS?!! Yes, I'm a bit slow, it just dawned on me this morning, as I was getting dressed!!!

YIKES!!! Am I ready? Yes, and No! I've suddenly got a case of the "happy scareds"!! What happens now? Have I got all the paperwork etc that I need? Am I going to be able to get it all ready in time? If we do get a Nov allocation, are we going to be able to secure flights, so close to Christmas? If he is a boy, I have NO clothes for him - will I have time to shop, between paperwork?! (duh... there's always time to shop!)

I was at the hairdresser today, she's heard me say for 3 years... "We're adopting from China... no, still no news". BUT Today... I told her we'd DEFINITELY see Mini before Christmas (if only in a photo!) I said, the next time I see you, I'll have a photo! I also pre-warned her, that I'm definitely seeing her the day before I leave for China, so I can have fresh colour and she can straighten my hair (it usually lasts about 5 days, when she washes & straightens it!!!). Priorities!

I also swung by T@.rg.et as Miss M needed new hair clips for school. I walked out with a pair of Capri's and a tee for me, the BB.c version of Pr!de and Prejud!ce (with Colin Firth) DVD, a pair of tiny size 3 pink butterfly slippers for Mini (once again, hopefully she is a she!) - they were only $3! bargain! 3 pairs of boxers for H-Man to sleep in, then my "travel" thinking kicked in. I bought a travel size cleanser and moisturiser and a travel mineral foundation compact. Can you believe that "travel" could be in 8 weeks... or less?!! And no, I didn't get the hair clips!!! I must be "(paper) pregnant" - my brain is a sieve!

I feel so warm and fuzzy! Perfect for a date with Mr Darcy tonight!

I really look forward to more of the 'happy scareds' I have those but they are mixed in with 'psychotic terror' at the moment ;0)

Exciting stuff!

Jenna said...

I love the term "happy scareds"...it's exactly how I feel.

2 weeks to go and I could not be more excited for you!

Enjoy the calm before the storm!! And make sure to have an extra long lingering look at Mr Darcy as he emerges from the lake just for me - mmmm, yummy!!!

It is unreal to think that after all this time, we WILL actually see our babies faces before another Christmas passes. This could be an expensive Christmas for you!

It seems that every trip I make to Wal-Mart or Target ends with something for the trip in my cart. Every little bit helps.

BTW, I have that version of P&P, and it is delightful. LOVE IT!

You are soooooo close now. I can hardly sit in my seat.

I am looking for a pattern for little bibs in case Mini is a boy. Can't have him wearing that dress. :)

Three years and it's now just two weeks away! We're excited for you and will be waiting to hear. I came across your blog a while ago, but just recently realized how close you are to seeing your daughter's face!

finally!!!

Mini has to be a hunan baby even better a chenzhou baby.

Maybe I'm a wee biased.

I can't wait!!!!

Much love and many hugs xoxox
