Look Ma, No Arm Restraints!

Brady has been a JOY all day. He had his appointment with the surgeon this afternoon and even opened his mouth for him. That's huge! The doctor was surprised that the hard palate was still intact and said it looked great. I am glad I didn't know he expected it to come apart or I would have been upset waiting for it to happen. He said that he had originally expected that the hard palate would separate and the soft palate to stay intact, but the reverse happened and it is actually a better situation for Brady. We were able to remove the arm restraints and Brady can eat real food. The doctor wants to see him every month and will decide later when to operate again. We have been real sticklers with the arm restraints so when I took them off, Brady just shook out his little arms with a wide eyed look. When we got home he had half a cookie and then asked for some baby food! LOL
