Wait Day - 9 : Almost There

Tick Tock Tick Tock!! Time is drawing near...

Today it was off to the stores. Sergei arrived around 1pm and Andrew and Lisa came along as well. Two birds, one stone! We went to the baby store first and picked up the necessities like diapers, wipes, baby yogurt etc. I also bought some great soft blocks that instead of english are in cyrillic. Very cool. Sergei pointed out what we thought was a shape sorting tub - one of T's favorites at the orphange - but it turned out just to be generic legos. I also got some tub toys to help ease her transition into water. If you are counting that's 3 toys - and I got tsk tsked about spoiling her!! Sheesh!

Then we went to the grocery store to stock up. More tsk tsking - this time over Coke (even Light!) and Pringles. A girl cannot live on borscht alone! I was told to get "baby juice" as opposed to big kids juice for T. And I was even tsked for buying wheat bread and not a darker bread - like a rye etc. I can't imagine rye and peanut butter. YUCK.

Tomorrow is the BIG day. Sergei is arriving at 9am (7pm Michigan time) and it's off to the courthouse to pick up the judges decree. Then we are off to get her new birth certificate and run a bunch of errands including dropping off the decree at the social workers office. FINALLY, it's off to the baby home to get T!! More tomorrow night -- including PICTURES!! I promise...

See how easy it is to spoil your children. Boy they are rough on you huh. Well not long now and you won't have to worry. Only a few hours more. I hope everything goes smoothly for you on Friday. Hopefully she does not get too stressed out on her ride to the hotel. We are so excited for you!!

Have a wonderfull day tomorrow with your daughter.

Peanut butter and rye??? I am with you on that. Yuck! I am so excited for tomorrow's post. Just a thought, as you walk by the Bee Grupa's door can you just snag one additional little 'item' before you head out? Just kidding of course! We are all excited for you Amy!

But, did you ever find the pre-made pull apart cookies to bake? Cookies are my absolute favorite and I would hope that store has em'

I'll be waiting on pins and needles for your next post! Thanks for all the posts, details, and pics up until this point.
