Another Aussie - citizenship approved

Citizenship approved... We went to the Australian high commission here in Delhi on Friday to lodge Emilia's passport application. Her citizenship was approved on Thursday and is now a true blue Aussie. 

With a little luck we should have a temp passport on Monday or Tuesday, then we can head to the frro and apply for her exit visa . 

We will have been here 3 weeks this coming Friday, and as much as I really want to stay here, finances and family need me home. Both Tim and I have been a little sick this trip, Tim has sent the inside of the hospital twice. 

We took Emilia and her cousin Namaeya to the rooftop pool today or some sun and fresh air.

Emilia has started becoming a little more alert and aware, I'm not sure how much she can actually see but she certainly knows when we are around. If she doesn't want to sleep she won't. If she wants food she demands it. She is really a very happy baby. 

Here are a few more pics of our "babymoon"

Love the baby frown she gives...

Emilia and her surrogacy cousins. 

Tim and Kylie fooling about at the spaghetti kitchen in saket select city walk shopping centre. 

More cousins hanging about the breakfast dining room.

This is my favorite photo. 

Thanks for following our journey.

Daddy has finally held his daughter (this didn't post hence it is out of order)

Yesterday I finally was allowed to hold my baby girl Emilia

Her look of "who the hell are you?" Is priceless and a memory I will never forget. I can't wait to bring her home and hold her forever.

If only we could read her mind?

Lazy daddy not blogging

It is 13 days that we have been here in Delhi, and as amazing as this place is, we  are all sick. Tim has been to hospital twice and doctors 3 times, I am a little tougher having only been to doctors once. The chemist here are a whole new thing. Prescription and hand written on doctor letter head, writing I illegible, this is also yours to keep as it is your instructions, you can have as many pills as you like, they don't really care, just pay. Hahaha

Emilia is doing fantastically. She eats and sleeps well and is so very responsive. I have her a bath myself today (daddy is proud) she loves the water and rarely screams, she just "frowns" when she is not happy. So far I think I have changed all her Nappys. And having never in 33 years changed a nappy I can't believe how simple it actually is.

It's interesting how much I feared having to look after Emilia, but how second nature it really is. 

I love this photo, she looks so content.

Very special girl in daddy's arms. Happy sleeping. 

Very very proud daddy

Dreams come true in India.........
