We have just returned from sufficiently stuffing ourselves with Mexican food. It’ll be noodles from here on out, at least starting Friday when we arrive in Beijing. I have mixed emotions, excitement, anticipation and fear. I am not sure what order as they seem to come in different waves. I need to just slow down and enjoy the next two weeks, just take them as they come. Like JE says, i have no control over these things so why worry about them. Tait is in need of some Mommy cuddling so i best be doing my job.
We are three days to take off. In less than a week we will be parents again and Tait will be a big brother. In a very positive way, our lives will be changing. It is a nice feeling. Yesterday we went to a “waiting families event.” This is a gathering of people who are in some phase of the adoption process with our agency. I can remember going to our first meeting and looking at those people who were about to leave to get their babies and now we are one of those people! We are almost packed and only a little over our goal. If i were not taking snacks we would probably be a little lighter! (I assume JE will make me leave some behind. It is either food or baby items.) Trying to do last minute tasks that need to be done. I slept well last night. I am sure these next few will be restless.
