I'm kind of afraid to say that. I might jinx it. Cross your figers, eyes, and toes!
A few items of business:
1) My apologies if you have tried to get in touch with me and I haven't gotten back to you. For one thing, Ukraine/adoption turns your brain to mush. That's a fact. And for two, to be honest... I receive TONS of emails, messages, FB comments, etc every day. I am SO SO grateful for all the encouragement and kind words (seriously, they keep me going), but it's hard to keep up! If I haven't responded, remind me please :)
2) SO many of you are writing to ask me what we need when we return. Truthfully, I don't know. (Refer to #1 about the mush.) Some friends have already given us some clothes, but I don't really know what we have at this point. There are a few baby items we are going to need and I am working on a small registry, just to point those who are asking in the right direction (not because we're asking for it, just to answer your question!). I REALLY hope that doesn't make me sound like a snob...
3) Some of our family and friends are planning sort of a "Meet Anna Gray" party for March 3rd. Be on the lookout for details :)
Now, the good stuff:
We had kind of a mellow day today.
Who am I kidding? She is always mellow- just more or less wiggly.
Today, it was less.
We played in the walker for a while...
(notice Edward watching tv in the background haha)
(little toes just a'paddling... and her duck socks had a bill sticking off of them- so cute)
We ended up like this:
We pretty much stayed like that the rest of the visit. The nannies would have had a fit to see me laying on the floor like that, but that's what I love about Saturday's. It's so much more relaxed- they bring her in, they pick her up. That's it :)
I got to experience Ukraine's version of WalMart today.
And it was awesome.
I would have loved to stay in there and check the whole place out, but Edward is always on the run. No, really- t's hard to keep up with him. (Speaking of run, we saw a man running outside with no shirt today! It was -16*C/3*F out there! Crazy.) But I digress... I got new luggage. The sales lady wanted me to get the D&B one because it was "toughter". Edward wanted me to get the Gucci one. He kept saying, "Are you sure? Are you sure? The other one is Gucci!" Yeah, I don't care if it's covered in diamonds- I want the cheapest one. So that's done.
Spinach omelet tonight and church tomorrow! I might even take myself out for lunch :)
