I've been so sick the last couple of weeks. Addy started first with the stomach flu then I got a sore throat that progressed to the flu then it went into my head and lungs. I'm still sick and it's been 9 days. I hope we're all healthy for court because.....
Thursday is Adoption Day! Three days to go. It's hard to believe how fast this year went by. Last summer at this time we were taking our training classes and now we're at the home stretch. Court is at 2:00 downtown. Addy and my outfits are all set. I still need to take the boys shopping for something to wear. My mother-in-law, my mother and my two nieces who are in town are coming. We're going out to eat after to celebrate and I think I'll get a cake for a little celebration at our house after. I ordered a bouquet of pink roses and mixed flowers for the social worker and a wristlet with baby pink roses for Addy. I'll finally be able to post pictures of her on here!
She's growing up everyday. She's talking in 3-4 word sentences, she repeats everything, she can name tons of new things each day. We watch Barney every morning while we're getting ready for work/daycare and she runs over to me and hugs me and kisses me when the closing song comes on. She is so gentle with her babies and she puts them to sleep and talks to them. She baby talks to the dogs and hugs them.
Her hair is so long now. When we first got her, I took her for professional pictures and her puppytails were barely 2 little puffs on her head. This morning I was joking to DH that she looked like Minnie Mouse because she had these two huge round puffs of curls on her head and I had put in red/white striped bows. It's even long enough to braid. I could just eat her up I love her so much.
She loves the pool, what a fish she is! She just wants to swim by herself. She find it highly inconvenient that I have to hold her in the water because she just wants to swim on her own.
She's getting better with DH, slowly but surely. She's fine with him when I'm not around but then she doesn't want to have anything to do with him. She's getting better though. She'll talk to him and go to him now. When he does yard work, she likes to go out and watch him.
The house....we signed the papers but with a contingency that we sell our house first. We're still having doubts because B is adament about not moving and Addy is so secure in her daycare I don't want to move her. Not to mention the extra $1,000 a month and 17 extra years of a mortgage. I don't know. I guess we'll see what happens. My house still isn't ready to be listed yet. I just haven't had the energy to do much being sick.
