And on this day, she filled our dreams with everything and more we could have ever imagined. She is love and we are over the moon with how beautiful this day was. There are just no words to describe it, it's like referral day bliss times 10.
Emerson Grace went right into my arms and has not shed one tear, but instead has been very interactive with us both. She only got a pouty lip after Daddy was gone from the room for about a half an hour to do paperwork and when he came back in, just sort of shut down...her protective wall went up. We will just have to prove ourselves to her that this is her last stop.
A little bit about my girl. She's a peanut, she blows kisses, she claps, she giggles out loud, she's very wobbly while sitting and falls over easily. She has very little strength, she can barely pick up a gerber puff...but she loves them. She hasn't sucked for me yet. She has pee'd in the potty twice when I put her on it and whistled. She was digging the bathtub water and the stacking cups are a huge hit. She has taken them all apart and put them all back together again in the right order several times now. She could be a genius or she's just darn lucky;0)
She's getting a kick out of the mirror. She seems fascinated with her feet and has an acrobatic talent with them. She saw her belly button and was fascinated with it. She has the marks by her knees of her time served that I wish to God she didn't have. And she's sporting the ever trendy bowl cut. What's so sad is they deliberately shaved the back of her head, it's just ridiculous. She seems to like the Ergo and she stares up at me. She also searches the room and watches me if I get up from the bed. She fell asleep in my arms at 8:05 and is now resting peacefully.
I can not believe that I walked into a room only 15 minutes after arriving at the hotel and somebody handed me my baby girl. I just kept saying to J, "Did I just walk in that room and leave with the most precious baby ever?" It's an indescribable feeling!
