Met my dd today, she is totally AMAZING!! she is very petite but gorgeous, she is clever, funny and just quite lovely. She weighed me up for a few minutes but then wanted to see what was in the gift bag, pepper pig phone and some bubbles plus the transitional soft toy that was in the photo book.

Can't wait for tomorrow when I shall become a baby bore and tell you all about day 2!!

I'm glad it went well. I was thinking about you all day yesterday. don't worry about being a baby bore that's what we're here for to agree with you about how wonderful and amazing your daughter is [bgrin]

Brilliant. Hope today goes as well. Take care of yourself. Introductions can be emotionally exhausting. Look forward to hearing more when you're up for it.

Happyasapiginshite · 25/01/2013 10:16

OOh, goosebumps!! No such thing as a baby bore (well there is, but no on the adoption board Grin) I'm so glad yesterday went well. My dd is a big Peppa fan too. I hope today goes brilliantly.

Happiestinwellybobs · 25/01/2013 11:29

Oh fabulous - glad it went well :) I kept thinking about you yesterday.

Day 2 Intro's

Well she is still the most adorable amazing little girl! I arrived this morning and was greeted with a smile, she was still clutching the little soft toy I took her yesterday. FC needed some shopping so we nipped out to Asda where I pushed her in the trolley and we sang nursery rhymes all round the store, we then had a bit of lunch and boy does she love her food!
Full 10 hour day tomorrow! X

How wonderful, glad it is going so well. Take care of yourself, introductions are exhausting.

FamiliesShareGerms · 25/01/2013 19:22

Aaah, this is lovely! Funny how a trip to the supermarket can become the best outing in the world, ever, isn't it?!

Ladyofthehouse · 25/01/2013 19:51

Day 3 intro's

Well I am not going to lie, today was a bit tougher. Due to the awful weather had to stay in at FC, although she made herself scarce for part of the day, I found it very hard being in someone else's house. DD is lovely, happy, smiley but it takes some doing entertaining a wee one for several hours and I have to admit I found it a little tough. Shorter day tomorrow and I am taking her out for a couple of hours (god willing the weather is ok).

Even when you're in your own house, a whole day stuck in at home feels very long and it's a challenge to fill it. So it's no wonder you found today a bit of a challenge. Please God tomorrow will be a better day. Even if it's raining, could you go and feed the ducks or something? I crack up if I have to stay in all day so dd and I go out with her in her raincoat and wellies and we look for muddy puddles to jump in a la Peppa :) Hope tomorrow's better.

Moomoomie · 26/01/2013 18:54

Not surprising today was tough, as happy has said being stuck in all day is difficult, let alone being in somebody else's house.
Hopefully the weather will be better for you tomorrow and you will be able to get out, even if it is just a walk to the shops or library.
When is your review?

funnychic · 26/01/2013 19:38

Review not till Wednesday and she is coming home Thursday! Not a chance of going out today, snow was up to my knees.
