Progress

This morning I put Elle down on her pink mat to play. After a few minutes I heard her start to whine so I went into the den to see what she was up to and I found her on her tummy. Technically, she isn't supposed to be on her tummy just yet but the doctors told us if she rolled over on to her stomach and wasn't screaming out in pain - she was fine. So I let her stay on her tummy for a little bit and enticed her with the camera. She was doing so good! She even reached out for the camera with both hands and was lifting her head up! I just sat there with tears streaming down my face because 6 weeks ago she had open heart surgery and prior to surgery - she couldn't/wouldn't do what she did this morning.
Everyday she gets a little stronger - I know before too long she is going to be sitting up on her own and doing awesome on tummy time. We will hopefully get the ok from the doctor on Friday to start all her therapies back up. Yeah for progress!!!

Awww Congrats!! We are still trying to get Isaac to like tummy time and he's already 8 months old. I have to keep telling myself that he WAS in ICU for the first three months of his life and most of that time he was intubated. He'll get there =) Go Elle!!!1
