So as you all know I left my last blog happily awaiting for Amelia-Rose, little did I know the wait would be the longest week in my entire life!! Ok slight exaggeration but still it was awful.
I had no tracking updates until the day she turned up so all week not knowing where my baby was & if she was ok, I convinced myself she was lost on a flight halfway here, I had friends keep me going & of course my kids making sure they kept me busy.
So the day of her arrival comes I get a knock at the door & its the normal postman just getting my hopes up, how rude! Then half hour later the door goes again & I answer with the biggest grin knowing full well what he’s putting in my hands. I place the box on my kitchen table, carefully opening the box & all the layers she’s wrapped in, I have an idea of course of what to expect from her progress pictures but I was still excited. Carefully taking the cloth off to reveal the cutest little face, tiny fingers, a perfect little bundle! She was here! All those thoughts in my head didn’t matter just this little girl I cradled in my arms. I cannot explain fully what that’s like after loosing my baby girl, this was the first ‘girl’ I had been near, looked at, held & bought clothes for. She felt so special to me in that instant, like a mum should protect her baby yet she isn’t a baby it’s very weird but I know she is going to help me & my family deal with not having a baby.
I now have the joys & fun of picking her clothes, making her pretty things, getting her dressed just as I do with Rosalie, it’s the start of something lovely for us all.
I’m grateful for online shopping.
