Seven to Seven

Sheena made it through without any drama. She called out throughout the night about 5 or 6 times. Hubby and I alternated going into her room. We would just hold her hands and stroke her face and she would go back to sleep pretty quickly. What a relief. She was probably wondering all those weeks why we were picking her up out of her cot when she just wanted help turning over so she could go back to sleep.

Sheena is doing fantastic. Yesterday while she was in her corner chair, she convincingly played with toys. It seems that she needed a nudge. I'd tried to get her playing for ages, but she was too withdrawn, and the toys would just sit there within arms reach (and worst still she'd be miserable). She obviously found it fun this time, because later while I was taking her for a walk in her buggy, she reached out for her rings by herself, and played with them for an hour while we were out. This is really great for Sheena. She might finally build up some muscles in those rubber-band arms of hers. Now, when I put her anywhere she's keen to look and play with various toys. This should make Christmas Day more exciting.
Here are some pics of the bees nesting in the outside wall of our house - but no more.

Yippee. You will not want to change any meds. It is so exciting to have her interested in things again.

that's wonderful that she is showing so much more interest in her toys now - she must be feeling so much better!
