Where Did March Go?

Sorry for the long delay in posting! Things have been very hectic here. I work as an event coordinator and I have a huge 5-day conference kicking off on Monday so I've been completely buried at work these last few weeks. I've been trying to spend as much time as possible with Alivia, too, as she's going to be staying with Gran and Papa all next week. I'll get to see her briefly on Tuesday night, but otherwise I'll be missing her from Sunday night till Saturday morning.

We have found time for a little fun this last couple weeks. We went down to Epcot with Gran and Papa and had a lovely day riding rides and looking at all the fun Disney stuff. Alivia fell asleep during one of the rides and got a nice nap in. She got to have lunch with Mickey, Pluto, Chip and Dale, too! We've also been back to the zoo--love the annual membership!--and we went to the international flower show out in Green Cove Springs.

The big thing has been Alivia's doctor appointments and therapy appointments. We finally got in to see the orthopedic specialist a couple days ago. The prognosis is good--Alivia's hips are fine. The problem is her leg bones themselves are twisted externally on both sides. The right one is really bad. What they want to do is continue the PT twice a week and get her walking better and give her leg muscles a chance to get stronger, then they want to put her in leg braces in about six months. She's not going to be a happy baby!

Today Alivia and I are going shopping for shoes--leather high tops--to help her with her walking. Then tomorrow we're going out to dinner with Gran and Papa to celebrate my birthday and Alivia will begin her extended visit with them.

I hope to get some new pictures at Easter and will post them as soon as I can!
