Ben and I made a joke while we were packing up Scarlett's toys in Washington, that the dollar pail and shovel we bought her, were going to be the only things she cared for in Florida.
We were right!
One thing we didn't see coming was her fear for the Ocean! Scarlett spends most of her day transporting water from one cup/toy to another. The kid dies for water, but when we tried see if she'd get her feet wet, this happened!
Poor girl is terrified! I'm hoping sooner or later she realizes nothing is going to get her! but I'm not going to lie, that face is hilarious!
These two have been having a blast together! It almost made me forget that Ben only has less than a week left with us. :( He'll be leaving for training in Redstone, Alabama for two months and I can't even imagine how Scarlett is going to deal with that.
Their bond is like no other. The love Ben has for her, and she has for him is something words just can't explain. As positive as I am through all of this, I'm preparing myself for the worst. This move has been pretty rough for her, she still is having a hard time adjusting to the idea that this is our new home. She keeps asking both of us "Let's go back home" :( It kills me knowing that she doesn't feel the warmth in this place, but soon enough,everything will fall into place for her.
