Day One of life in Delhi

Wow, we were pretty boring yesterday. We spent the day trying to adjust to the time difference and fill our apartment with the basic necessities. We are so lucky to be right across the street from the market (India's version of a mall), so everything we need is available within minutes. Downstairs from our apartment is an excellent donut shop, which may get more business than our waistlines need!
We brought a lot of the baby stuff with us, including two car seats. I was concerned that the car seats would use too much of our luggage space, but we received two JL Childress travel bags for them which are fantastic. The bags are for the large toddler car seats, so using them with an infant seat left a ton of extra room to fill with stuff. It was shocking to me that when we finished packing there was actually extra room in our luggage. Tomorrow we are going shopping for the pack n' play and "fun things" to fil the extra luggage space!
On the baby front, we haven't heard anything. We are planning to attend the next scan, but we don't know exactly when that will be yet. I will probably make fool of myself when we see our surrogate for the first time because the thought of her brings tears to my eyes every time. I can only imagine what a cry baby I will be when we actually see her!
I better go back to bed, since it's 5:30AM here and I need to take advantage of what little time I have left to sleep in!
