Willie and I have made some really big decisions lately.
We have decided that we are going to have a baby. We are in the process of adopting and we are very happy and excited about this. We have done the paperwork and everything else that is necessary and now we just have to wait.
Once we made this decision we also realised that we need to start getting things ready. This might not take the “9 months of pregnancy” and we need to be ready for when we “go into labour”. We have bought the cot and pram and car seat. We have a bottle and a dummy. My awesome friend Heidi has bought us a few outfits and some nappies. We have most of the toiletries. We also have a few blankets. So effectively we can bring our baby home any time.
We obviously don’t have everything yet but we have enough for if our baby comes home today. I have made endless lists of things we will need and Willie and I will be going shopping in the next 2 or 3 weeks to shop for the rest.
We are both very excited and obviously hope the wait is not too long. The baby room is ready (and smells like a baby room already) and we are ready. So for now we are “pregnant” and waiting for baby to arrive!!!
We are very excited!!
