A new day

Today has been a fun day. The kids have been really good today, and we have had a lot of fun. It has been raining here for most of the day, but we have found a lot of indoor activities to pass our time.
Arlington learned how to "fool you". She wanted to know what it meant, so now she says, "look at the plane upside down in the tree!" Our response has to be "where?" And she says, "I fooled you". So silly, and never ending!
Finley is cute as always. She has been mostly playing in a plastic bin today. We have been cleaning up the toys and getting rid of things they kids no longer play with, and everything I put in the bin, she takes out. She is a goof. And, of course, she thinks she is hilarious.
Cainan, well he said his first word! At least we are counting it as his first word. Today he said "uh oh"!! We were so excited. He repeated us, and that was nice to hear. He is also working on saying "ma" and "moo". He is working on making an "m" sound with his new lips. He is getting there. Can't count it yet!
The sad news of the day - Cainan looks like his nose is also starting to change shape. It looks like some of his stitches have let go around his nose and his nose is losing its shape and starting to slide down and become crooked. Great. Good thing we are going for a revision. Who knows why he is having this trouble post op. Maybe because he had a large gap and that was hard work for the stitches. Maybe he rubs his face at night in bed. Who knows. but it is happening and today it is worse. Even his mouth looks like the gap got a little bigger. One more day and then we head back top surgery. Hopefully this will be the one and only revision. He just starting to get back to himself and we are going to have to start over.
Here are some pictures from today.

I love the photos of the kids in the clear plastic bin. We have the same bin, and Kylie used to sit in it. We'd drag it along the carpet with her sitting in it (like a ride) and she loved it!

Cainan is such a trooper. I hope the issue with his nose doesnt turn out to be a big deal.

Finley is doing the same thing that Sally's cats do, put down an empty container and they are in it. It's been a long time since I've been around a little one and can't remember if the kids did the same thing. It looks like fun. Nanny
