My DW and I aren't sharing this with anyone in real life yet, but if I don't tell someone I'm going to explode.

We've been selected to be the proud mummies of an adorable 15 month old little girl!

Of course, we still have to get through the actual linking and matching, but, for today, I don't think I could be any happier.

Hurrah! Brilliant news

GirlsWhoWearGlasses Thu 05-Dec-13 15:19:13

Thanks all. It feels a bit surreal to be honest after all the waiting, but there's loads and loads of information in her records, which is helping us to start picturing her as her own wee person.

mrsballack Thu 05-Dec-13 15:27:40

Congratulations. You must be so excited.

Ill be honest and say I've found this part the hardest in terms of waiting but I'm sure it'll all be worth it in the end.

Many congratulations.

Bet you've already bought a lovely Christmas outfit for her?

GirlsWhoWearGlasses Fri 06-Dec-13 18:00:51

Weeell...not an outfit yet, but DW has arrived home with a sheepish expression and a teddy bear. Heard today that linking will happen before Christmas, so our Christmas present will be getting to see a photo of our daughter. This week has just got better and better!

Thanks to everyone for their kind wishes.

How marvellous smile I loved loved that stage in the process, all anticipation and buying little things grin

GirlsWhoWearGlasses Wed 11-Dec-13 11:44:39

Update Today we saw a picture of our beautiful soon to be DD. I have to report that she is the most adorable child you've ever seen. I appear to have turned into a total slushbucket. Presumably normal service will resume at some point.

LaVitaBellissima Wed 11-Dec-13 11:46:25

Congratulations thanks how exciting at Christmas! smile

Lilka Wed 11-Dec-13 11:48:04

Aww that's so lovely smile

I regret to have to inform you that no little girls on the entire planet are as adorable or beautiful as my granddaughters are. But I'm sure your daughter (at last!) is the third most adorable and beautiful girl in thw world wink grin

Congratulations to you all.

And no - normal service doesn't return, you will always be a slush bucket when it comes to your DD.

clarkey1983 Wed 11-Dec-13 12:45:32

That is amazing congratulations to you both. I'll never forget the moment we got matched with our baby girl.

Moomoomie Wed 11-Dec-13 13:45:03

Aww. That first photo is so special.

MyFeetAreCold Wed 11-Dec-13 14:58:24

Congrats! but my DD is best

Enjoy the wait (and the sheepish shopping, and the sheer joy of hanging out in the kids' section without feeling like a fraud!)

Kewcumber Wed 11-Dec-13 15:16:38

going into Mothercare legitimately and not feeling slightly creep like you have to explain everything to the sales assistants about why you're not there with a child... its just the best feeling.

Next best is actually goign in there with a child.

CAVEAT - that feeling does wear off when shoe shoppinng turns into some kind of extreme sport.

Winter coat shopping has shoe shopping beaten hands down...in this house any way (what is it with 10yo boys and coat resistance? Is it an age related allergy?).

bberry Wed 11-Dec-13 19:54:13

My hubby is 38 and has massive coat, hat, glove resistance !

Congratulations grin

Our 18 month DD came home 6 weeks ago gringringringringringringrin
