Moving with a thirteen month old
Joselyn has been such a great little girl, but even the best of children don't stay stress free during moving! We knew moving would be hard for everyone, but I don't think we had completely calculated just how differently we would all respond. Joselyn has been moved from the only home she has ever known to a different state, and to a new way of life called a town. In the process of moving her bed broke, so she has also been sleeping in her little sister's crib and room these past few days. In addition to a sleeping arrangements, she had an accident in the crib and is not getting to sleep with her "blankie" because we have yet to buy a washer and dryer. Jos is quite the little shopper, so all the shopping trips we have had to take have been theraputic for her in a way, but the minute we enter the new home she quickly turns into a leg clinger. Today is the first day I have really started to see her personality starting to make its way back into all of our lives, and we are more than BLESSED! This journey has been challenging, but even Joselyn is teaching us in these times.
