6 Weeks Post Op!

So it's been 6 weeks since Kayla had her open heart surgery.  I'm excited that we can now lift her up under her arms and we can do tummy time.  I had been worried that since she has had basically no tummy time since she's been born that it would take a while for her to lift her head, roll over, etc.  Well I put her on her a tummy a couple days ago and she immediately lifted her head up high!  I was so amazed and proud of my girl.  Today I put her on her tummy and she rolled over for the first time!!  I'm glad I can start doing more stuff with her now and she's starting to learn what she can do.  She's such a happy girl.  She has also gained a pound since my last posting, so I'm not as stressed about her weight gain anymore.  Yay!

 Her scar is pretty much healed.  The scab at the very bottom finally fell off yesterday and now it's indented...
Rolling over from her tummy to her back for the first time!


  1. These pictures are amazing. She is beautiful and i just love her smile. Happy she's recovering so well :)

  2. I am so glad to hear that she is doing well. I went through the same thing with my son except one of his arteries were plugged in the wrong place so he was getting no oyxgen to the right side of his heart.
    The doctors said he should have been dead at 4 months old. The only reason they discovered his issue was because he caught the swine flu.. and today is a happy and healthly 22 month old baby running on milk and asprin.

    Your daughter is too cute and for her to be so little, you really can't tell by the pictures, she is chunky and beautiful, bless her heart.

    I know you don't know who I am but I just thought I would send blessings and glad to hear she is doing so well.. Bye for now.
