So we are home, and falling into a semblence of a routine….baby Kahuna is great–great at sleeping, great at eating, great at cuddling…..she’s a natural newborn!
We are filing the petition for her adoption this week (our agency refers to an outside lawyer-they don’t have one in house). Not sure what my occupation will be for the birth certificate, but you’ll have that.
What has been so amazing is how taken with her everyone is–she has some mystical baby powers, I think. The doctor has declared her perfect (always reassuring), and we go back Sept 8th for some shots. Not looking forward to that.
So she’s home, I’m home, L just got promoted, and we are becoming a nuclear family, I guess. It’s almost like an out of body experience.
We’ve been emailing the birthparents and baby Kahuna’s birth grandma–they are such great people. They seem to be doing as well as can be expected. It was weird coming home from the hospital and not seeing them–after having such an intense 3 days with them, it’s weird to think they are going about their lives 30 minutes away and visiting baby Kahuna on the website.
