Noah had his first shopping experience at Target this evening. Actually, he had his first trip outside of the house that wasn't to a doctor's office or for a family walk. And he loved every minute of it! Who doesn't love a trip to Target? ;) It was so encouraging! I had no idea how Little Man would do. He was wayyyy more comfortable and excited about the whole thing than I expected.
One of the most fun things about adoption has been figuring out Noah and Nora's personalities. Their personalities emerge more and more each day, and their personalities are changing as they experience the nurture and love of a family for the first time in their lives.
Our little guy has become very silly and has a sensitive heart. We've recently learned that he is adventurous, too. He doesn't particularly like new people (but will sometimes use them to try to get what he wants...we're working on that one...), but he seems to love new places. He gets SO excited when we put his coat and shoes on because he knows he is going somewhere. It doesn't matter if it's for a walk or a car ride somewhere. He just likes the thrill of going somewhere. He is also equally excited to come back home at the end of his adventure. :)
