I am happy to say that now Lyla is doing MUCH better. When she got out of her casts, her feet looked really mashed and had these deep creases in them and now all the creases are gone! She is doing a lot better with having her brace on. She is also doing better when we touch her feet and put her shoes on and take them off. I think the whole thing just takes some getting used to. Also, she is FINALLY able to take a bath! YEA!!! She hated her first bath since it was the day she got the brace on but now she LOVES getting a bath! That is my favorite part about having the casts off. Bath time is seriously the best. Also, Lyla is starting to smile!! I LOVE getting her to smile and she does it more and more every day. It is so fun! She is also starting to coo a lot more and we really can't get enough of it. Nate and I love her more as each day passes. Here are some recent pictures of Lyla down below...
This was Lyla after her getting her braces on and getting her immunization shots. Poor girl, this picture just tells it all.
This is Stephanie Holmes, Lyla's doctor. She did a fantastic job!
