Adaptability...

My little lovey has displayed a quality as of late that makes me smile. She is all about adapting to new surroundings! In the last two weeks we have packed up our entire house, flown on an airplane for the first time, met two new doggies and at least 20 new people, slept in different beds, and are in a totally different house...and it really doesn't seem to have affected her at all. Not even a little bit! The plane ride was my biggest worry, I hate flying and I think I'm going to die every single time I get on one. Claustrophobia sets in. Heart palpitations. Sweats. Nausea. I loathe it. I loathe THAT I loathe it. So when we decided to have Emery and I fly up instead of drive for 20+ hours my nervousness escalated by a million percent. I understood why it was necessary to choose a two and a half hour plane ride but I realized I needed to get my crap together and make this flight easy for my girl. Also, it didn't hurt that my big sis decided to fly up with me. =) I expected the most problems to occur on take off because of the noise and maybe the cabin pressure bothering her ears but seriously homegirl didn't even flinch. In fact, I don't even know that realized we were doing anything out of the norm! It was awesome. This last week has been interesting...we're trying to settle in and get into the groove a little more and it works sometimes and then other times it doesn't.
Next week she's one. One. I can't believe it. People always tell me that time flies and to enjoy every moment and while I can't say that I stop and smell the roses every last time I seriously try my best. She is changing so much, even in the last week. She's talking a lot more, in fact her vocab these days include "nice", "ni ni"(night night), "guh guh"(gus), and "uh-oh". She plays really well by herself which is a HUGE change from before. She can pull herself up on things now, and is quite the explorer. I'm proud of my little bug...I've said once and I'll say it a thousand times. She's magic.
