Babies have started appearing on RQ. I've got everything crossed, that Emma arrives today or tomorrow! Emma's family were logged in on the 20th... not only will be super-duper great for Emma's family... but it's good news for me, as it'll mean, CC.@A is only TWO days from our LID!!! Which means - we'll DEFINITELY be in, in December.
Ruby is Coming
Waiting for Lauren Elizabeth
I must admit, I was a grumpy cow yesterday! With rumours of only a two day batch this month - I wasn't depressed, I wasn't sad.... I WAS ANGRY!!! I kept (bitterly) saying to Mr T - "GREAT! Now we might not even see Mini in December!".... ever the optomist, hey?!!!!
I'm feeling like I've hit a bit of a "Zen Spot", now that there are reports that the 20th have been allocated! I just need to see a baby or two that was logged in on the 20th... and all will be well! I figure it gives me another month to organise my kids, Christmas etc ~ and KNOWING we WILL see Mini in approx 30 days!
Wow! 30 days? After 4 years, of praying, thinking about her (which could now be HIM!), changing her name 3 times!, shopping for her, blogging about her, dreaming about her... we're finally in the FINAL days! I'm guessing we have approx. 2 months left as a family of four.
Other good news (I'm just full of it today!) - we FINALLY decided on a boys name. If we're allocated a boy - we've narrowed his name down to ONE name!!! I had a list of about 6 names, with about 20 middle name variations!!! We still haven't decided on a middle name - but that's no biggie! He's got a first name! I tell ya, I've been sleeping alot better since we made the decision. Mr T has been saying for at least 6 months now, he's sure we'll be allocated a boy!!! Its really freaked me out.... I HATE being unprepared!!!
So - our child (whether male or female)... has a name! Woohoo!
...and its not Mini!
*EDIT* - Now I'm gettin REALLY MAD!!! It appears some wrong information was announced, and it "appears" [[AA only got as far as the 17th Feb. Yes folks, and enormous 1 and half days of files was allocated this month. So sorry to Jen and family - you WILL beyond a shadow of doubt, see Emma in Decmeber.
Truly, I thought waiting 33 months was hard... this last week has been brutal. Yes, I know, I'm a whinging cow... I'm really mad. The bad news is, if they only managed to allocate under 2 days this month - there's a good chance they'll do it again next month and we still won't be in.
Lord, Give me Strength.
