Sleepless in Switzerland

Earlier today I was telling someone that I don't think I will be able to sleep again until after the baby is in our arms and all necessary adoption paperwork has been signed.

Then I realized how ridiculous that was. How many parents of newborns are well-rested?

Hah, yeah.

You can take this as practice for trying not to overly-obsess or worry, as there will be plenty of chances for that once GB is with you. ; )

Ditto to what Marcy said. :)

I was kind of hoping that after the baby was born I would be too busy to obsess and worry. How laughable is that?

At least it will be a different set of things to obsess and worry about!

Absolutely. Have to agree that a first baby creates wonderful opportunities for worry and obsession! All the same, you will feel so marvellous when he is yours. I want to say: please don't worry if there are some difficult unexpected far-from-perfect moments with a newborn, but that sounds patronising, so I'll just say it again, good luck.
