Post-op update

Alexis is such a crack up lately. Especially now that she is talking better. We had high hopes of the surgery helping her, but it has exceeded our expectations. She says things so clear now and is using 6 word sentences. It is great to be able to have conversations with her. She has been playing the help me card a lot. She will lay on the floor reach her hand out and say "helpa me" it is really funny because she can't ever reach me so she says "I can't reach your hand." She then stands up and grabs my hand and says "I got your hand." Before her surgery she would jabber and then get bored with playing because I didn't respond the way she wanted. Well I usually had no clue what she was doing. I can tell her to talk quietly and she does now. The biggest change is Britt can understand her. He would always need translation from me and now he doesn't. She hears snippets of what people say at the store and repeats them, not always the best thing. I hope preschool is better for her now. She has learned triangles, squares and circles and she knows what A is. Love seeing her progress and interact, she is so smart and now she can really show it. Life just gets better and better.
