Emoree's first official day of pre-k was yesterday! She was so excited to go! Not even one tear, from EITHER of us. Grandma and I drove her to school (since I just started driving again today), and I took her in and waited with her in her pre-k line in the school gym until her teacher came. She hugged and kissed me, and said, "Bye Mommy!" and walked off with her class. She loves "Big Girl School"! I waited at the end of the hallway and watched where she couldn't see me to make sure she didn't get confused. She forgot to take her folder out of her backpack before putting it in her locker, so I went up the hallway and got it out and gave it to her, and she said "bye" again.
We picked her up at 11:45am, when Pre-K lets out, and when she realized she wasn't riding the school bus home she got quite upset. I don't know what it is about this kid and school buses! Today I did look into where the school bus would drop her off if she were to ride it, but I wasn't happy with the location so today I am going to have to explain to her that the school bus doesn't come near our house :-/ When we got in the car, she had her first day of school present waiting for her in her car seat, a big Dora pillow that I picked up at Walmart yesterday morning :)
Last night Emoree had her first dance class at A Step Ahead! She looked just as confused and bewildered as this picture the entire time, but after class was over she really lit up and was excited to tell me how much fun she had, and that she wanted to go back in and dance with her friends!! She has 30 minutes of ballet, and 30 minutes of tap on Tuesday nights.
They did attempt to run an nj feeding tube in her nose, but later when they did an x-ray it was not placed correctly so they pulled it out and will try again today. Her x-ray also showed that her left lung isn't inflating completely, which can happen after coming off a ventilator, so they increased the pressure on the oxygen she is receiving and tilted her to her right side to help with her lung. I can't wait to see her today!
