A better day today

Not meaning to be indelicate; but my girl seemed to have improved spirits once she had a BM. Constipation is something she struggles with ( lots of kids with DS do). The lack of fluids contributes to her problems, and because of that she has BM's that resemble rabbit pellets. I am getting more fluids in her by watering down favorite foods, I figure I have to try something, she will not drink from a bottle or a cup, but will from a spoon occasionally.
So after she perked up considerably, laughing playing by throwing her shoes off. She did not seem interested in the toys I brought for her, I was upset I did not bring more things for her to play with, but our suitcases were stuffed full, we had no more room.

What tickled me the most was her responding with huge smiles whenever I called her name, and what a sweet smile she has!
She picked up her Navajo doll and began to sing to her, play with her, and hug her. I was so worried she did not play with toys.
She sat on the floor behind me and played, giggled, and was content. I was so happy she was feeling better. I snuck alot of the pictures, you can see her responding with smiles when called her name.





She is taking a nap, I think I will join her.

My son thought he was dying and we rushed him to the local hospital to find out from and x-ray that - yes, he has constipation. Of course he felt much better after using the hospital's restroom on our way out the door.

Amanda is absolutely gorgeous and she looks so pleased when you call her name.

Kris & Amanda,
What a beautiful smile Amanda has. She does look happier. I am so glad for you that she is feeling better. A happy baby makes a happy mamma. Kris there is already such a change in her looks. You are doing a wonderful job. I am glad she is eating more for you and that you are both getting sleep.
Take care my dear friend your time to come home will be soon. I am praying for that earlier date for you.

She looks so happy Kris. Her smiles put smiles on my own face. She has some of the best facial expressions. Hope things get better with the BM's.
