It's Been...30 days!

I can't believe that I have been home for a month now. It seem so much longer. I have been a mom for about six weeks now but it seems like a lot longer. I have to say that Grace is doing exceptionally well for the short amount of time that she's been home. There are days though that it seems that we've taken two steps forward and one step back. Part of her issue is the beta blocker medicine and the teething! Poor baby! She feels cranky and funky! She's also a restless sleeper because she lacks the oxygen and because of her meds. Last night (well 4ish or close to 4) my girl was screaming in her half awake half asleep state. She didn't want a bottle or anything. I scooped her out of the crib and held her and put her into bed with me (she is not a fan of this except in the mornings when she gets up and we play a little then)...I was able to put her back into her crib when she fell asleep on my bed. She was restless in the morning but got better when we went to Grammy & Pa's. I think she gets bored of just the two of us. She likes to be on the go. She has been waking up earlier and earlier the past two days. It's exhausting.

Grace got her meet two of her great aunts and her great grandmother this weekend. She liked them all. Thursday is our big day for meeting the surgeons. The surgery is coming up August 7th. I know she needs it but I am dreading it just because I'm nervous. I am sure this Thursday after I meet the doctors I will feel least I hope so.
