Sucking her fingers for the first time when Grandma held her!! Maybe she will follow in the footsteps of her brothers? We shall see…
Miss E was an absolute angel for all that we put her through these past 4-5 days! Our 6 hour trip on Wednesday turned into almost 9 hours due to weather and traffic. Yuck. She did absolutely perfectly for about 7 hours and then decided enough was enough! We were all glad to make it to Mugga and Papa’s house.
Our sweet Little Miss was pronounced beautiful and perfect about a million times!! It was really fun to introduce her to our favorite people in the whole world. I am so impressed with how she handled meeting so many new people, having sleep get crazy, traveling, shopping…it could’ve been a lot worse!
She really started changing while we were in Ohio, smiling so much more at us and talking to us. There were a couple of times that she spent several minutes talking to my mom and Ben and just melted our hearts completely! As if they weren’t already melted….
The boys were so good. They weren’t thrilled with the hours and hours of driving and only asked about 1020 times when we were going to get there but over all did well! They were so good at our families houses and really enjoyed all the love they get when we are home. Zakkai renewed his light obsession and about drove everyone crazy flipping light switching on and off and having mugga and papa change lightbulbs on every burnt out light:) He had a good time! They are counting down the hours til we go back!!
And driving in the new van was AWESOME!! It was so smooth and so spacious! I can’t imagine how we ever got along without it! Ben actually enjoyed packing up the car (ha!) and driving. He even didn’t really mind driving through the sleet on Wednesday because he felt so safe in the van. So thankful!
Well, I am off to get some sleep while E is sleeping (we began sleep-training tonight…more on that tomorrow!). Videos coming soon!
