Great news! Francesca is almost back to her old self!
She can hold her own drink. She is quite proud.
She still is not sleeping. I am getting lots and lots of exercise running up and down the stairs at 1 am. At 4 am. At 4:30 am. Finally, I just let her sleep with us. Her casts are like weapons though. She accidentally whacks us in her sleep. I may have to start wearing a helmet at night.
In Victoria news, she has learned how to drink out of a straw! The wonders of a repaired cleft palate!
I have been trying to get her to say "up". Today I said "up" and she kind of opened her mouth like I had and made sort of a sound like "up". She did it every time I said "up".
Victoria acted very strange when I first came back from Texas. She didn't seem to know who I was at all. However, she gets really excited when she sees a total strangers at the store. My mom says I am being a worrier. I am trying to carry her more in the Ergo carrier. Since her legs don't bend, I have to put her in sideways, which is not very comfortable for either of us. Anyone have any other ideas?
