Pixie comes home

We formally adopted Pixie in Phnom Penh, Cambodia on Thursday 18th and Pixie and I cruised into London Heathrow early on Friday 26th September.

Pixie has just turned one, but despite being in an orphanage just about since birth, she has adjusted to her new life with extraordinary ease. DD1 (2.5 years old) is now getting to grips with being a big sister and DH and I are grappling with being the parents of two gorgeous toddlers.

DH and I are totally besotted with Pixie and the sadness that we missed her first year is more than outweighed by the joy of bringing her home.

Just in case you think I'm a cruel and thoughtless mother, 'Pixie' is DD2's orphanage nickname and we have given her a formal name which will be easier to live with when she's a truculent teenager!

Congratulations, Issymum!

Pixie is a really cute name (and even if you try to use the formal name I bet Pixie will slip out half the time - and when she is a truculent teen you can wind her up with it!)
