Time is Fleeting

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow once said that “Time is Fleeting” how right he was. I can’t believe it is now less than a month till we fly to Shanghai and it’s only 34 days until we have the rogue regent in our arms to stay.

I honestly thought that the wait between allocation and forever day would be excruciatingly long and painful. However with running around getting airline tickets, visa’s immunisations and such I have not had much time to think about the wait.

Being the pessimist I am I am thinking that it will be the last week that will be hard and that the night before we meet Lily will be the hardest of all. Argh knowing that she is in the same city as me the night before handover will be painful. But oh the joy that will come in the morning!

Something else wonderful and positive happened this week. We got Lily’s finding ad in the mail. For the finding ad, the newspaper it was in and a negative of the photo we paid $75 USD but it was so worth it! To have a picture of Lily when she was only 2 days old is beyond precious!!


So what do you think? She’s just divine huh? And who knew she had the Angelina pout going on!! All the photo’s we have of Lily she is sucking in her bottom lip. We are guessing she was teething in these other photo’s and hence no bottom lip. However in this one when she is so brand new she has quite the pouty lip going on. She is truly gorgeous!!

    How wonderful and exciting!! At least now she has a history of bfore she came home. No doubt this photo is something that you will cherish and guard with extreme care. If at all possible I would sooooooo love a copy of this photo and any others that you might end up with.
    Lily is certainly one very beautiful and very much loved little girl.

    Rachel, I’d love the details how to get hold of one of those of my Lulubelle.
    Not long now till you have your little baby princess in your arms, counting the days down with you too and love checking your website. Happy Birthday too; sounds like Albert made sure you had a great day and I wish I had the time to get into my scrapbooking. Lucy’s hanging out to get started!

    Hi Rachel and brother…
    that is a gorgeous photo! would have to be my favorite so far…
    SO much to do, so little time… 34 days seems like a lifetime, but it will go so quickly. Before you know it you will be stepping on the plane! But i do think you are right, that last night before will drag! but all good things come to those who wait and yours and alberts wait is finally over!
    thinking of you both, or three!
    lots of love
