Evy is doing very well! She kept all of her food down today and was very happy all day. The only difference was that she slept a little more than usual. The weather was cooler and the girls and I were able to play in the backyard just like we did all last summer and fall. It felt so nice to have them both at home and feeling good, enjoying the beautiful weather. Evy loves swinging on the swing set. There is a frog that hangs out by our mailbox and Stella loves hearing it jump into a nearby water pipe every time we approach. "Froggy! Jump!" in her cute little chirpy voice.
The girls love to play with the sensory table Evy's OT made her- we fill the top of it with different things at different times. We have rice, beans, cotton balls, rice krispies and pasta for Evy to feel with her hand. Hopefully the sensation of touch will make her brain remember that her hand is still there. She and Stella both love the table and love to cover and uncover their hands, make it rain by dropping the items slowly, and tease mommy that they are going to make a huge mess. Devilish grins and giggles abounded today.
It's amazing how tired I get taking care of them, and I always wish I could just rest a little, but then as soon as they are asleep for the night for more than thirty minutes, I just miss the heck out of them. I always dreamed of being a mama more than anything else in this world, and I am a lucky one indeed.
