This Little Piggie...

You know it's time to start blogging again when a friend calls up to ask if you've already traveled to China or perhaps you "just" died. Nope. Neither. I've been extremely busy, as I'm sure you can imagine. And by busy, I mean I've been sitting in mei mei's room for tens of minutes at a time, doing absolutely nothing.

Oh, and we traveled over the Easter holiday, of course.

Plus, the kitchen sink blew up. It seriously did, y'all. Ask Carla. She was talking with me on the phone when Contaminated Water Sludge From The Broken Sink came into contact with my bare leg. Fortunately, said Water Sludge failed to melt my skin, but I'm convinced that is only because I managed to grab an antibacterial wipe in 0.352 seconds.

But mostly I've been sitting in mei mei's future room, imagining life after baby #2. And I've been sitting by the phone, waiting for our agency to call with travel dates. I'm striving to avoid descending into the depths of Crazy Land, but I must confess it's difficult. No news yet. *sigh*

One bright spot last week involved three more pictures of a certain little someone.


I can't wait to watch her wiggle those little piggies.

(And yes, y'all, everyone keeps telling me it looks like mei mei has Big Feet.)

Thinking of you as you wait for those precious travel dates.

I've been thinking about you and figured you are super busy. I too thought you may be traveling to China. Miss your funny posts about the T! I'm sure she has some great thoughts about this whole process!

Buckeroomama said...

You can't even begin to know how excited I am for you, the T, and TD and all the rest of the T family!

Hope you hear of your travel dates soon! Oh, and if you ever manage to squeeze in a side trip to HK (or even travel via HK!), do give me a shout. :)

Ya know - it just occurred to me that you'll probably do that 'don't show the face thing' forever...how on God's green earth are we able to make an opinion about mei mei's foot size without a REAL picture for perspective? ;

Ah well - still couldn't be any happier for y'all!

hugs - aus and co.

She'll probably have big feet just like her mama. FYI Everyone, TM wears size 9 1/2 Wide. Just thought I'd share that fact while we wait and wait and wait.

The Gang's Momma! said...

hahahahahahaha - laughing my head off at TG's comment. Soo funny. Now we all know. I've BEEN wanting to know, just to shy to ask :)

And BTW, I don't think it looks like she has big feet.... I think it looks like she has delicious piggies. Mmmmmm, I love baby toes. So much so that my sister posted a pic on FB JUST of her little guy's feet last summer, JUST FOR ME. Which totally blessed me cuz she was all the way in Massachusetts and I'm here in PA. And I had to wait another month before I met the handsome dude.

Sigh. So happy for you. So happy to see piggies.

Reena said...

Can't wait to hear when all your little piggies will be on a jet plane to China.

Shonda said...

If you do descend down to the depths of crazyland, could you look me up please? I'm lonely down here. Thanks

Cute toes! Clearly by those toes we know she will be gorgeous.

Wendy said...

So excited for you!

prechrswife said...

Look at those sweet Mei Mei piggies! I can remember just sitting in the rocker in MJ's room, so I know exactly where you're coming from on that one.

Sorry about the sink. That sounds like no fun at all...

Dawn said...

So glad to read your update... I was one of the ones wondering! And VERY glad to finally know your shoe size. LOL

So excited for you and can hardly wait to hear that you've received travel dates!!!

Be blessed!

LucisMomma said...

So totally understand the crazies. :)

My DH's grandmother (in her 90's at the time) told me our DS's huge baby feet were a "firm foundation." I liked that. Not big feet, a *firm foundation.*

jennifer said...

I'm so excited for you!! It is very hard to keep your sanity in those last weeks/months/years...whatever the case may be :)

Those are some cute piggies!!!

Rachel said...

Glad you're not "just" dead. Also glad I haven't missed your travels. The last two weeks before our son was born, I would sit in the rocking chair in his room and pray for him and his birthmother and our family. It helped prevent Crazy Land from becoming a permanent destination!!

the meaklims said...

I so remember sitting in the empty nursery. *sigh*
I'm praying for you...that this wait will soon be over and you can nibble on and kiss those little piggies!

Carla said...

So glad that you were not harm by the kitchen sludge splurting out on you!!!!! Soooo glad!

and those feet? ::swoon:: I love itty bitty baby feet, even when they are on the larger side. ;) Since my 12 year old wears a 13 wide mens shoe....he had HUGE feet as a baby.

SOON you will not be imagining life with #2, but LIVING life with 2 children in the house!!! YAY!!!

Gail said...

I've been thinking about you lots lately TM, and know this is a wild and crazy time. I also remember those days sitting in the baby's/toddler room wondering what this new little person would be like.

And I LOVE those piggies. and had to laugh at your mom's comment about your feet.

Hoping you find out your travel dates soon!

hugs...

Heather said...

Perfect little baby feet!

Special K said...

I'm hopelessly lost in Crazy Land right now. LOL! Just counting the seconds until we get Travel Approval. I feel like I'm stuck in this limbo of needing to PLAN but not being able to until we have confirmation. Ugh...

Love Letters To China said...

Can't wait to follow along on your journey. She has adorable feet!

Sharie said...

Her little piggies are SO sweet. That was my favorite part of Amelia's referral photo - her toes looked long, but the picture was quite deceiving.

Suzy said...

Thank goodness she'll have a good foundation ; )

Shawna said...

I'm glad your back! So, how did you get the latest of those little piggies? Did you go through Ann at Red Thread?

I would love to have updated photos too.

Tooth Fairy said...

Ah ha... the long awaited Mei Mei picture! I knew you could do it. And I hope you won't be offended if I tell you I would love to bite her toes.

Cavatica said...

Oh dear, I'm not the Tooth Fairy, that was Cavatica. I have far too many Google accounts.

kitchu said...

awwwww! kissable little toes :) sorry for the blow up though :O(

Dita said...

giggle giggle giggle....I can see you and the antibacterial wipe....hoot, howl and roll on the floor.....uh ahem....giggle giggle giggle.

Yeah, staring and waiting...sounds about right...you're nesting alright, Mama!

Love is sweeter the second time around (if you can even imagine it could be!)

Love those piggies already!

Hugs,
Dita
