Ok awful use of AIBU so I apologise but just wanted to share grin

Bought home my long awaited, much loved adopted 12 month old baby boy yesterday!

He fell asleep in his cot at 7pm - usually sleeps all the way through to 7am but woke up at 3am. Could hear him on the baby monitor chatting away happily to himself (so no waking up confused or scared!). Eventually started to fuss so I went in and changed his nappy as it was soaks through, changed his pyjamas and bed sheets, but he wouldn't settle back in his cot so bought him back in with me and DH where he fell asleep curled up with me. At about 5am he was obviously dreaming of something funny as he was chuckling away in his sleep. We then got up about an hour ago and he is happily playing around with me and giving me cuddles after having his breakfast smile

I know it's early days and it's likely to get harder the next few days as he starts to realise he is missing his foster carer, but omg I am so happy and in love with my little chap.

He is just such a little treasure! I know I've probably made a rod for my own back by bringing him in with us because he's only ever slept in his own crib or cot, but it was just so lovely. He kept trying to pull my pyjamas top so I just took it off and had lots of skin to skin with him, he fell asleep with one on my face and the other on my chest for my heartbeat. I was awake tje whole time just thinking "wow". I've got what I always wanted!!!!
