Cast #2...

On July 5th Alexis had her pink cast taken off and a new fancy orange "waterproof" one put on.  As with everything during this whole process she has been incredibly amazing.  Here are a few photos:

Cutting off the pink one.  She was so brave and the nurse did an amazing job of prepping her throughout the process.

Cast free for about 30 minutes and waiting for x-rays.

Alexis has loved looking at her x-rays.  Doc said the bone growth was not as good as he hoped but is definitely progressing.

On goes the orange...

And now we can swim, and bathe, and play in the sprinkler!!  Thankfully cast #1 was only on for two weeks.  This one has been amazing--allowing her to swim and do most of the activities that she wants to do in the summertime!

We go back on the 26th for another checkup and x-rays.  Doc said potentially she may have to have cast #3 placed depending on new bone growth.  Cast #3 would most likely not cover her entire arm and would potentially just go below the elbow.

Fourth of July Hodge Podge.....

We made a quick trip to STL for the Fourth this year.  Unfortunately due to the weather conditions all the fireworks were cancelled and we came home early.  Here are just a few photos:

This post will be a little hodge podge of everything.....

On June 24th, The girls and I attended a baseball game for our local minor league team. 

We've kinda had to hang inside a lot lately due to Alexis' cast and the extreme heat.  On June 25th I took the girls to see Finding Dory in 3D.

I know this picture is blurry, but wanted to share anyway.  I took this pic of Alexis sleeping.  I just loved the way that her arm was hanging out and she was cuddling with Roo Roo.  She loves that thing!

I always love when I go through my phone and find a millions selfies that the girls have taken.  While annoying, it always makes me smile!
