We are home safe and sound and happy - hooray!
WanYing is adapting extraordinarily smoothly to her new home (it helps that we keep her well-supplied with bananas) and has shown a special fondness for the art nook, so maybe we have two budding artists in the family.
The only things that she doesn't like about home so far are sleeping and the dog. The dog thing is no surprise since she's probably never seen an animal live and in person and we expected some early nervousness - Sash was the same way with Nesbitt when she first got home. So that'll just take some time.
Sleeping is also an expected struggle and both girls' internal clocks are way off right now. Last night Sasha walked downstairs at 9:30 pm fully clothed right down to her Minnie Mouse shoes and announced that she was ready for breakfast. Needless to say, she was not pleasant when informed that she had only been asleep for 2 hours and needed to go back to bed.
so she is adjusting to the big girl bed and time change all at once. Poor kiddo. During waking hours she's a happy, smiley girl, but both girls have been up from about 3-5 am for the past two nights and not very pleased about it (nor are Mom and Dad, for that matter).
So please pray for sleep (at night!) for our family
and for WanYing's continued comfort in our home. She's doing so well, what an amazing, resilient kid.
Oh, and I went to the doctor today about the hernia and we're going to wait and see for 2 weeks and then do a CT scan if everything doesn't resolve itself by then. Ugh. I'm feeling so much better already, and I'm praying that my body stays on the "take care of itself" track.
