I have been busy making appointments and trying to learn all I can with Isabelle. We had our first assessment on Monday with our case worker for Early steps. I am excited to get started with her therapies so we can learn the things we need to do to get her muscle tone stronger. Her neck is the main area that I can see has low muscle tone. She seems to be strong in her arms and legs at this point. We should have our first session in the next couple of weeks. I am eager to see what her base line is and to see where we go from here.
I never knew how much was needed to get started with all of these programs. I feel like I am talking with someone every day. I am having a hard time remembering who is with which agency and keeping the agencies straight as far as what they do. I am sure I will learn it all as time goes on.
Now that Isabelle is here, a lot of my fears have been pushed to the back of my mind. I no longer think about the "what ifs" everyday. Now I think about Isabelle and the here and now. I am in Mommy mode. I love her so much already and I often times find myself just staring at her. She is beautiful and she has my heart!!
But until then, I am going to put these worries aside and just enjoy my special time with Isabelle and love on these big cheeks!!
