we're finally through the tough part!

Tomorrow it will be 3 weeks since Sophie had her palatoplasty and I can finally say that she is back to her old self. She's beginning to drink milk from a cup normally now. She totally gave up the bottle and anything to do with sippy cups. I've had to spoon feed her her liquids and use a syringe to dribble some squirts in her mouth, always worried that she wasn't getting enough fluids. It's been trying to say the least.

She has slept through the night 2 nights in a row now. That is something she did since we first got her so it's been difficult for all of us. I'm feeling much better now that I have had my sleep too!

Sophie has wanted me to hold her all the time, so much so that my back was beginning to ache. I haven't had a chance to get my normal housework done and a cluttered house drives me batty. So now I don't have an excuse, hee hee!

I'm so anxious to get back to my weekly bible study on Daniel, take daily walks, and enjoy my sweet little angel's dynamic, happy-go-lucky personality.

Did you know Asians naturally squat a lot to play? A physical therapist told me that she has seen this phenomenom a lot but only in Asians. Caucasians don't squat to play. Sophie can play for at least 5 minutes in a squatting position. It's adorable! She's just like her great-grandpa...but we called it Filipino style.
