At some point last night Reagan must've fallen asleep. She was laughing when we dozed off but then I didn't hear another peep out of her. So either she was very quiet (which she was when she first woke up) or she actually slept. Who knows. She woke up happy and sweet so that's good. This morning we went to an Easter egg hunt at my stepsister's house. Her culdesac hides eggs and all of the kids go find them! Reagan enjoyed everything except the group photo. It was just too much. Too many kids making too much noise! The next thing we knew she was in tears! She calmed down very quickly and then even got to pet a bunny! I caught a super cute moment with her and her brother. Ryan went up to her and was showing her one of his Easter eggs. Totally unprompted, just interacting with his sister. Sweetest thing ever! We came home just in time for a make up session of PT. She did well with that although she was acting a little sleepy toward the end of it. We think she was just playing possum though because the second her therapist left, she perked up and was very vocal and alert. She's been super spitty today. Shoving her hand down her throat A LOT (and then choking). We've spent the better part of the day trying to keep her hand out of her mouth. It's a constant battle. She's been good otherwise. Hoping for another good day tomorrow!
All of those noisy kids were just too much for my girl (but she quickly recovered)!
On August 21, 2007 (at exactly 5 months old), Reagan had her first cluster of seizures. She was diagnosed at 6 months old with Infantile Spasms and 2 years later with Mitochondrial Disease. Life has been a roller coaster for us and our baby girl but we've been blessed with wonderful friends and family to help us though this!
