Meanwhile, Caydence has been taking her mittens off every 5 minutes the past few days. She really wants to suck her thumb, but sometimes when she puts her fingers up to her mouth she yanks on her ng tube as well, so I've had to keep putting her mittens back on. This morning I had enough! I felt kind of bad, but... I taped her mittens on with 2 inch masking tape. :P
She thought it was pretty funny at first, but then she realized she couldn't take her mitties off and she wasn't as pleased. We keep telling her that pretty soon she can have her hands free all the time and she can suck and chew on her fingers all she wants. :)
Josh wanted me to write about the unfortunate poo fiasco I had this morning. I won't go into too much detail, but let's just say that there was poo EVERYWHERE! All over Caydence; all over me, all over the changing pad, all over the bed sheet and all over the mattress! The changing pad and bed sheet were casualties of war, but fortunately me, Caydence, and the mattress all survived after some thorough cleaning.
Over the weekend I finally put the jump jump together that we had bought Caydence with her Christmas money. She has been holding her head up pretty well lately, so I was excited to get her in it and see what she thought.
Unfortunately, our little short stack can't reach the floor, even at the lowest setting :(
I propped some books under her, but she isn't putting any weight on her feet yet, so I think it's gonna take sometime for her to actually JUMP in her jump jump :P
On a good note, Caydence went to the cardiologist yesterday and although she screamed bloody murder throughout her entire echo, her heart is looking good :) We also got the green light to lift her under the arms again.
Anyways, thanks for checking in on us :)
I'll write tomorrow afternoon to let you all know how her surgery goes in the morning.
