Believe it or not - Miss T is holding up like a champ. She's adjusting really well and seems to be mighty happy and comfortable in her new digs. She LOVING the kitties or Maaaaaw as she always says and big news to report is that today she's started saying CAT. She's still a tiny bit scared of actually touching them - but my guess is that the kiddos were told over and over again at the orphanage NOT to touch the strays that were everywhere around there.
She's sleeping almost through the whole night. She'll usually wake up once or twice and whine a bit, but then she goes back to sleep. We even had our first April Showers thunder storm last night and she didn't seem to mind that. She'll even take her nap pretty well - which is a bonus too. She fights it in the beginning - she doesn't want to miss ANYTHING, but usually will finally fall asleep. Bonus for mom is that she likes to give me kisses when she gets up -- which is a huge step for her, especially so early on.
Other big news to report this week was her first U.S. haircut. It will take Jasmine a couple cuts to get it all cleaned up - but it already looks better and she was a real trooper sitting still at the salon. We also had a visit to Bernie's (daycare) today. Riley (T's little cousin) goes there as well - so it was nice for her to have a built in buddy. We visited together for awhile and then I went to the store for about 30 minutes in order for her to see that mom goes away but comes back. Not a single tear was shed, which was great. Even better was that she was excited to see me when I got back but yet it didn't scare her to realize I had been gone. What a trooper this girl is!
For her fans -- here's some pictures that I finally downloaded today...
