Entry for June 27, 2006

No time for blogging this week. I've been so busy with getting ready for this party that I am neglecting my page. Also there is not much to report. We've been doing allot of "wonder what Liv is doing?" . Also I'v been looking at her pictures constently. I really miss her, I wish I could go back and redo last week. I still can't bring myself to unpack her suitcase. But we have good news, we have been pre approved for Olivia's Visa to come into the country. Just another step closer to bring her home.
This is one of my favorite pictures we took.

Our last day. We stayed in bed playing with Liv till we had to get ready. I tkept my cool for most of the morning. She is just so funny to watch. Also this morning she gave me her first real smile. I had her lay on the bed and I do this thing where I pretend to bite her hands, she loves it, and she gave me a smile. what a cutie.
Then it was time to give her back. The lawyers people were waiting downstairs, so I bundled her up like she was when I got her, and we carried her down. She was taking a nap. I kept kissing her little head and I handed her over, and told them she would need to eat soon. I went in for one more kiss and I started to cry. I miss her so much already. I want to be the one she looks at when she eats, or the one who answers her cry at night. My rational side knows that she will be home soon, and that I need to get things ready here.
So here are the lyrics to the song I sang to Olivia every night, This song is also on the tape I made for her. right before it ends. This is for you liv.
"Leaving on a jet plane"
All my bags are packed, I'm ready to go I'm standing here outside the door, I hate to wake you up to say goodby,
But the dawn is breaking, it's early morn, the taxies here , he's blown the horn, already I'm so lonesome I could die.
So kiss me and smile for me, tell me that you'll wait for me, hold me like you'll never let me go,
Cause I'm leaving on a jet plane, don't know when I'll be back again, oh babe I hate to go.
Now the time has come to leave you, one more time let me kiss you, then close your eyes and I'll be on my way,
Dream about the days to come, when I won't have to leave alone, about the times I won't have to say,
kiss me and smile for me, tell me that you'll wait for me, hold me like you'll never let me go,
Cause I'm leaving on a jet plane, don't know when I'll be back again, Oh babe I hate to go,

Olivia's first play date was today. A friend of Vinay's cousin is also adopting and fostering her child herself, so she came to visit. Olivia slept thru much of the playdate, she really is our child the way she sleeps.
Last night she went to bed at 11:30, was up at 3 then was up at 7, drank a bottel each time then slept till 10am.
We of course have been sleeping with one eye open incase she needs us.
Tonight I cried putting her to bed. I dawned on me that I won't get to put her to bed tomorrow and I got sad. I love her so much and would love to bring her home now but I know I can't, actually I have nothing ready for her to come home. I really need to get my act together.

More pool time.
Olivia is quite the beach bum. She loves to hang out at the pool and sleep. Today there was even a Mariachi band playing and she slept right thru it. However she does like to be up at night. Her best mood is around 8-10 pm, when she is suppos to be going to bed. We have really messed up her sleep schedual. Her foster mom is going to hate us. Also she hates the bath. She cries and arches her back not to sit down. So I've been giving her sponge baths. Next time I come, I'll bring a bath pad for her to lay on, since she is even too tiny for the baby bath that was in the room. One thing she does love is to sleep on her belly. I only let her do it during the day when I'm watching but she sleeps so soundly. we wnt to a mexican buffet in the hotel tonight. she slept in the carriage the entire time. What a good baby.

Today we are tired we spent the day by the pool and met another family who is bringing their daughter home. Nikki and Dan live by freehold and it turns out Vinay met Dan before thru work. He really does know everyone. We had so much fun during dinner. Liv slept most of the day, so I hope she sleeps at night..
For fun, I thought I'd list some songs Vinay has been singing to Liv.
1. Mr Roboto,
2. The theme from Golden girls (thank you for being a friend)
3. The theme from Dukes of hazzard
Notice how these are all from the 80's.
We are having so much fun.
