I had my first "ultrasound" today. Since I'm only paper pregnant, I only got a "paper ultrasound." Or whatever - maybe my all-too-clever analogies are breaking down.
What I mean to say is that we got our referral today - we got matched with a baby that will be ours! He is beautiful, just the cutest thing ever. I wish I could show you all and brag on and on about my son-to-be, but he's not legally ours yet, so you just have to use your imagination.
The shocker is that he is an infant. He appears to be about 6 months old, although I'm not sure when the photo was taken. We requested an infant, but held that request very open-handedly, because there are no guarantees, and in the big picture, it doesn't really matter all that much anyways.
But, he's tiny, and adorable, and everything I'd hoped for... okay, that's putting a bit to much pressure on the poor kid. I'm sure he's got his quirks, like maybe he won't poop in the potty til he's 4 or maybe he'll be a biter. Whatever his quirks are, I am so excited to learn them, and then begin the process of staying sane in the midst of all of them, just like I'm doing with my first two kids.
So... what's next? We need to wait for our court date. Once we get that, we can start making travel plans. We're hoping for January.
