We have been home 10 days

We have been home 10 days and the speed in which Lily is learning and picking things up is incredible! She has been Daddy’s girl the whole time and has not really allowed me to cuddle or hold her very much. But in the last 3 days Mummy is getting a few cuddles in.

She now knows what and where her toy things are and is happy to sit and play quietly for hours. CCAA certainly matched us with the perfect child for us. She is so similar in personality to her father that I still wonder.


She sailed through her first grocery shopping adventure. She was a bit wary of the trolley seat but was ok as long as she could see her Baba.

Lily has not made any sounds except to cry since we met her but last night we went out to Dinner at the Tai Yuan restaurant in Dixon St China Town with her cousin Enya (2) and her Aunt and Uncle. She loved it! She loved being in her stroller next to her cousin and by the time we were driving home we could hear her singing to herself in baby language! Ah she speaks!!! Then when we got home she was making random sounds and it was interesting to watch. We think that her talking may happen quite soon.


Being with her cousin has helped I think stimulate her curiosity and give her confidence to try some new things.


Ahh life is so good!!

    Oh my godness, is it possible that she is getting even more and more gorgeous every DAY??!

    Glad to hear that you are home safe and sound, and that your fears of being stopped at the airport/immigration/customs/ Syndey Airport were unfounded (I have EXACTLY the same fears and won’t sleep until our child is in our house either!!).

    Love to all three of you,
    Tasha xx

    Oh Rachel and Albert;
    That girl is too cute! And that photo with Albert is JUST PRICELESS….looks like Lily is thinking “Wow Daddy, is that really all true?”
    I can see why it’s your favourite picture, she really looks like she adores Albert already and it’s been what..?? a week?? How incredible!
    Enjoy your time with the princess, we know JUST how you feel!
