Home alone

Or not home, as the case may be. Mr Spouse went home yesterday, and two night time feedings are more than twice as tiring when you don't have anyone to share them with. I am aware that we are very lucky it's only two.

Everyone is taking care of me though, I'm at the foster carer's house for dinner, and tomorrow I'm meeting the adoptive parents my friend introduced me to, again.

I have a few bits and pieces of paperwork to get done - I just picked out the ten photos the agency gets us to print for the first month, and written a draft of a letter for N to put in her scrap book. We have another well baby appointment on Thurs, and I'm thinking about going to a Mommy Matinee.

The visa agents have a status check facility on their website, and we were pleased to see the paperwork not only arrived at their offices but was sent to the embassy. We were very surprised to see an estimated back-in-office time of next Weds later in the day. We'll believe it when we see it, but perhaps Mr Spouse's obsessive form-filling side has helped. We actually have one supposedly essential piece of paper missing, which we cannot get, though we got a court order to circumvent this. So we are crossing our fingers they noticed this already and don't mind, rather than that didn't notice and are going to object when they do.

Wow, two night time feedings is amazing when he's that little! Excellent work. :) Glad to hear things are going well. Hope you don't miss Mr. Spouse too much.

That's what happens when you have a slightly prem baby who doesn't always wake up written it's time to eat, and you have to wake them yourselves, with an alarm sometimes.

you're thinking about going to a mommy matinee???? I am SO impressed at how chilled out you sound!

Hope that paperwork gets done soon and the three of you can be reunited.
