Restrictions are lifted! And happy belated Halloween.
Today is the 6 week mark. It's been 6 weeks since Lexi had her heart surgery. Amazing. It's amazing how much she's changed in 6 short weeks. She's definitely eating more and putting on weight. I think her cheeks have tripled in size since her surgery. Luckily, she is once again sleeping through the night. Today our restrictions were lifted. She can once again lay on her tummy. She seemed happy when I did this. I'll bet she'll be rolling over soon, now that we can do tummy time again. She's resuming her therapies through First Steps on Monday. We can also go back to lifting her up under her arms. For 6 weeks we've had to scoop her up under her bottom and back in order to pick her up. Usually it's not a big deal, but it can be a pain when lifting her out of certain seats or from certain angles. She's been lifted a few times under her arms today and the first few times she seemed fine but this evening she would fuss. I'm hoping she's just not used to it and it was irritating her. Let's hope.
This past weekend was fun. Nicholas turned 6 on Friday so we had a birthday/halloween bash at Paula's on Saturday. All the cousins and a few friends came. It was a fun day, even if it did revolve around Transformers and Bakugon. (Don't ask.) Let me just say, that while I don't usually do first birthday parties for my kids, Lexi will be having a very pink, very girly party in April. No Autobots allowed.
