Paigey update

Paige is doing really well! She had her NAM adjustment this last Friday and she is over 14 pounds now. Little chunky butt. :) Dr. V told Hal that we need to start making the steri straps tighter as she is almost done with the NAM! She said that the tighter we make it, the closer her cleft will become! Of course, I can't over do it and squish her cheeks like a fish. LOL Dr. V also said that her nose looks awesome and she should have a really wonderful outcome after surgery! I can't wait. Not too much longer and NO NAM! I'm a little scared about her eating without the NAM but I plan to talk to Matt about that at our pre-op appt. I tried yesterday and boy is it different than feeding with her NAM in. I'm just not used to it anymore. But all in all, Paige is doing really good. Her reflux is a little more under control from the surgery when she started to spit up a LOT. But, now it's not as bad.

Talk to you all soon again. Don't forget to comment!

Proud Mama Moment

There are somethings just make you proud to be a mother! Today is one of those days. Owen and I had the rare opportunity to spend some quality time with just the two of us. So I decided it was time to teach him how to tie his shoe! I have a shoe tying pillow and I showed him 1 time how tie his shoe the "grown up way" without using bunny ears. (I hate bunny ears, I think it's harder to teach as there are too many things for their little fingers to hold). Anyways, I showed him the one time and then walked him through it one time. Then, I set him lose! He did it the very first time by himself!! I was so proud! He's growing up! He practiced a few more times on the pillow and then did it on his shoe! He did awesome! I'm one proud mama!
