6 Weeks Already?!?!?

A couple days ago Caydence turned 6 weeks old! Jeez, time sure does fly :) I'm sure she is getting bigger every day, it's just hard to tell since I am always with her. This coming Monday a lady from the Birth to Three program is coming to our house for Caydence's initial evaluation. We'll have to let you know how it goes.

Tuesday she has another check-up with her Pediatrician. We can't wait to see how much weight she's gained. We still don't know when she is going to have her heart surgery. Last time we saw her Cardiologist he was still saying 6 months to a year. We see him again in mid August. Hopefully then he will be able to give us a better estimate.

Right now her doctor's are recommending she not go to daycare until after her surgery. It would put her at a higher risk to get sick and getting sick before her surgery would not be a good thing! Her daycare is also not comfortable with her feeding tube, so right now I am trying to work something out with my job. Either working from home somehow or taking a leave of absence.

If I end of having to quit my job, besides the lack of money...Caydence would most likely need to change all her doctors because she would be under Josh's insurance and they don't cover her current doctors. We really like her doctor's so it would be a shame to switch. But we'll have to see how everything pans out. Wish us luck. it's a sticky situation :P

Here are some pics!

Sitting in her boppy -

Sleeping in her Pack N' Play Bassinet. (No, that isn't her foot... we putting socks on her hands so she doesn't pull out her feeding tube) Hehe! -

Admiring the mobile on her lamby swing -

Lastly I would like to say congratulations to my friend Melissa. She gave birth to her baby girl Olivia today! :) She was 8 lbs and 19 inches long! Hopefully we can get a pic of Olivia and Caydence together in the near future :)

She's even prettier in real life. :) Nice seeing your little family today! (I agree about daycare - they're little germ factories).
