After a week of being trach free, here are some new things about Abby:
* She took her first bath with water in the tub on Wednesday. The girl LOVED it! She splashed and laughed the entire time, giving me quite a mess to clean up! It was so worth it to see her so happy. It's exciting that she can do that now that the hole is closed up!
* Abby sings all of the time now! She never did any singing when she had her trach, but she started singing just a few hours after getting it out. That evening, I asked if she wanted to sing a song and she la-la-ed something very close to Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star! She now la-las all of the time, and I LOVE IT. LOVE it. This was one of the things I was most looking forward to with her decannulation. It is so sweet!
* We went to the ophthalmologist today and he confirmed that she needs glasses. Her eye has started drifting and she's nearsighted. (We already knew this, but he was holding off because of the whole throwing stage thing!) We're now on the hunt for some cute toddler glasses!
