Alixandrea is doing wonderful!
Back to herself for the most part…yet wanting to be held a bit more which Is understandable.
We’ve kept her in a bubble of sorts making sure she doesn’t bump that cheek or set down hard as babies do. The jarring movements are uncomfortable and can cause unwanted swelling for the next few days. She had a few un-wrapped Christmas gifts that hadn’t been out of the box yet so Isaiah opened one for her yesterday. She was happily playing with the new toy and I stepped in the kitchen to fill her sippy cup. Mid pour, I heard a shuffling noise and when I turned around this is what I found. Boy howdy was she mad when I tried to take her off that box…..so I hovered. It’s hard finding the right balance of letting her do what a baby does and keep her in quiet play….for a few days at least LOL!
She is a climber. Nothing makes her happier than standing on a box, booster seat or raised area.
My oldest daughter has a fireplace hearth (unused) that is about 4 ft wide and 3 ft deep. They kept it covered and padded with blankets…It’s Alix favorite place to stand in their house. So I’m sure this box is easy peasy to her but nerve wracking to me.
Alix says Hi! And thank you for all the healing prayers
The stitches are so tiny its hard to tell there’s so many in such a tiny cheek.
Not the best close up. She shy’s away from anyone looking at that cheek. I think she’s worried her mama will try to clean it or put more ointment on it. Looking directly at the stitches has her turning away. The good news is as young as she is they feel it will heal well with very faint (if any scaring).
From all of us, Thank You for all the healing thoughts and prayers
