Here We Go

20 Mar Here We Go

Today I dressed her up as cute as I could. The bright yellow outfit with a white tutu and a little bumblebee on it saying “Bee Happy”. Going to be hard today. Ethan has his game at 11ish and Abby has games pretty much all day. Baby Girl will get to say goodbye to all her Soccer Star friends. And more importantly, the Soccer Star Mommas will get a chance to hug her and squeeze her one more time.

The games were over and now it’s time to drive home, finish packing her things and hand her over to her new family! I can’t believe this is actually happening. I can’t eat but the rest of the family is while I run around the house with just a few minutes to spare. I took a moment to jot down those special things about Baby Girl that only I know.

She doesn’t like to be held like a baby unless she is sleeping. She is a great burper but sometimes her burping parts need a little help. She is not that fond of the bath yet. She can put herself to sleep for her first nap of the day. And on and on and on…

She was getting tired and I was glad. I was hoping she would be asleep when she left. It was the perfect time for the four of us to say our farewells before her Forever Family arrived. Abby carried her around a little bit telling her how much she loved her and that she was going to miss her! Time for Ethan to hold her. He doesn’t hold her often. Still an awkward boy when it comes to that. He did all his special time when Baby Girl was on the floor or in the carrier. Tonight was different and as he grabbed her she ended up in his arms being held like a baby. She hates that. Big complaints usually come from her tiny mouth but this time it wasn’t the case. She looked up at Ethan and just started talking to him. She took a break and laid her head on his arm. A few seconds went by and she turned back to him and talked to him again. I was dying inside. She was treasuring this time with her big brother. Erwin held her a bit longer and said his goodbyes as she drifted off to dreamland…
