A Rough Day

Today was a good day. We went to Austin radiological and had her skeletal x-rays done, that was pain to participate in, but we both survived.  Afterward we went by the studio and ran around to show off our cuteness.

Safia has been eating well, lots of fruits and veggies,  broccoli, raw carrots, corn, raspberries, fresh peaches, grapes, watermelon, squash,zucchini, chicken, pasta, scrambled eggs, yogurt, turkey.  She is eating the same meals that we do. And has not turned down anything except some canned fruit cocktail.

Her bowel movements have returned to normal.  After using a glycerin suppository on Tuesday night along with plenty of fruits and veggies in her diet things are better on track.

Safia did develop a rash around her neck yesterday (Thursday) morning. The doctor said to put hydrocortisone cream on it and come in on Monday morning.  It has gotten better.  It does seem to show up when she gets hot so it might have something to do with the heat.

She is smiling and laughing,and seems to be adjusting well.  When we are around others she is comfortable but will go only to either Chris or myself, she does not want to go to others.

Sweet success when it came to bath tonight.  I put some water in our tub (a garden tub) and took off Safia's diaper, I just put her in the tub in her dress.  She fussed a bit, but we started splashing and playing with the toys and she was fine.  I used the wash cloth to get her wet and was able to take her dress off. Safia laughed and giggled.  Bath time was a happy time tonight :)
