Today is the third day that both my girls have been home with me during the week. Up until Monday, Reagan continued to go to the "nursery" with Wes every day after Lauren was born to stay with Ms. Barbara so that Mommy could have a maternity leave and bond with Lauren. Well, it's been 8 weeks (hard to believe!) and now I am a full-time stay at home Mommy!
Don't be mistaken - I was scared to death Monday morning of being terrorized by these two! We are surviving though, and even better...we are having FUN! I am really enjoying the extra time with Reagan and seeing first hand the strides that she is making to beat Rett Syndrome. Yes, it's hard work keeping both a 2 year old and a 2 month old fed, happy and entertained. Thankfully Spring is here and the weather has been great for outside play and long walks, which have been a lifesaver!
Needless to say, there hasn't been much time to post updates. Here is just a quick recap - Reagan has had a wonderful 2 days and Monday was one of her better days in Physical and Occupational Therapy. She stay focused the entire time and never once stopped trying. Today was a little different because she woke up feeling bad so we had to skip therapy. Her stomach pains finally went away and she went to sleep much happier tonight.
We transitioned her crib to a toddler bed on Sunday and Rea Rea (nickname by cousin Evie) decided to show us how smart she is and quickly figured out how to escape. I heard her a little noise Tuesday morning around 7am and was so shocked to see her out of bed. Then Tuesday night she got out and was by her toybox when I peaked in on her. I guess she wasn't ready for bedtime. I love seeing her typical toddler behavior moments like these and jumped for joy, even though getting her to stay in her bed might be challenging later!
