I'm finding that this waiting game is much worse than paperwork! At least with paperwork I feel like I'm contributing in some way! Our dossier should be submitted this Thursday. And hopefully a couple weeks after that we will have our date! I'm adding other adoption blogs to our sidebar, I've been really bad with supporting fellow RR adoptive families, so I'm trying to change that!!
We had our "girl" shower last Saturday. It was such fun. Girl stuff is way funner than boy stuff. That's probably just because I've been doing boy stuff for the last 12 years!
We got lots of clothes, and are filling up her closet and dresser nicely!
My sister-in-law gave me this cute basket. I should have taken a picture of what she did because it was so cute. She strung a clothesline and hung the clothes on the line! I'm going to use this as her toy basket. I know, its pathetic how little toys are in there right now! I'm just not sure what she will like. For already having a Down syndrome child I know very little about what they do at each stage. That's because to this day Jax doesn't eat by mouth, sit up, or play with toys. So I'm a first time Down syndrome mommy all over again!
My mom gave me this cute play mat. Again it will be great because I don't know if she'll be sitting up or not. My guess would be no. She's not even a year yet, and with no therapy I doubt she's sitting. But maybe now we can put Jax bumbo seat to good use! We were never able to use it for him!
Oh and these shoes! OMG!! You probably know that I have a major baby shoe fetish. Jax has so many shoes. I have held off on getting her shoes until I know a size. I got these at the shower and I can't wait to try them on her.
Just look at these MaryJanes!
