One Month Today!

One month today I finally got to see my babies face! I will never forget that day and how special it was. Her eyes were the first thing to jump out at me. Beautiful like you can see down into her soul. I love her so much already too! She has no idea how much her world will change, how much she is and will be LOVED. (My Mom jokingly told me Abby will be lucky if her feet touch the ground by June.) There are so many people waiting to meet her, so many special moments and firsts for us both. I can't wait!

I sent Abby's care package off today. Below is a picture of it's contents. I am crossing my fingers and saying prayers that it will make it to her. The post office told me that there was no way to be able to track it. I just have to hope and trust....

Thanks for the packing advice too. I am going to take out some of the outfits for Abby but which ones??? I think too that I will have to possibly get a new suitcase for me to take. Mine weighs 11 pounds and that is probably too heavy right????? And we bought our tickets today!! We leave on January 2nd! Wahoo!!!!!

I have more thoughtful gifts for Abby to post too! People have been so thoughtful and generous. I am so thankful :)

I can't believe you'll be in China in one month! I'm sure you're going crazy with anticipation. But I know you have plenty to keep you busy in the meantime!

I'm so excited for you! For what it's worth I would only take two pairs of pj's if that helps at all - the daily clothes seem to be more of a challenge for me.
Blessings!

I ditched the suitcase and bought two duffle bags with wheels...they weighted alot less and I could cram more in because they weren't a fixed shape! Just a suggestion.
I would also cut your packing list in half. I only brought three outfits for myself and had the hotel do laundry.
