Evy has been a totally different baby since activation! She is more interested in toys and her playtime lasts longer. She seems to really love the sounds she is getting and even though she still fusses a little when we first put the implants on, she quickly adjusts and goes right back to smiling again. I love seeing her eyes light up when she's just heard something new. Watching her learn everyday is so exciting. Some days are tougher than others, but for the most part, I think that Evy loves her new ears!
I loved every minute of my time off with Evy, and felt very guilty when it was time for me to go back to work. I feel so bad for leaving her all day during a time when she really needs me. After lots of reasoning and thought, I accepted a new position at a hospital. I will work three 12 hour shifts a week which will allow me to be home more often with both of the girls. I have been with my current job for almost 4 1/2 years and will miss everyone very much. I am so thankful for the love and support that I have received from my co-workers through this journey. I am truly lucky to have made such amazing friends! The new job is a great opportunity and is a good move for my family. It will take some adjusting to, and change is never easy but I'm hoping for the best in this new chapter!
Here's some pictures of my sweet Evy, playing with one of her noisy, new toys :)
