Good News!

We took Claire to the ENT appointment and the doctor thinks her ears are "perfect and beautiful"! He found no fluid and thinks she can hear just fine! He scheduled her for a hearing test to be on the safe side but believes she will pass it. The test she will have is called an ABR. I do not know what that means but the test involves sticking some electrodes on her head, playing sounds in her ears and recording the brain activity in response to the sounds. He said that she was so easy going during his exam he thinks he can do it without putting her to sleep!

Speaking of sleep...did I tell you how good this kid is at it! We were putting her to bed at 9PM and she was going to sleep shortly after that. Now, our little turkey has figured out that she can pull up on the crib and cruise the rectangle so it takes a little longer for her to settle down. But, if I tell her to lay down she will! She will cry...for a minute and then be quiet. Once she goes to sleep, she sleeps through the night and she takes a good nap every afternoon!

One thing that fascinates Claire is to look in the mirror. She likes to see herself but she has even more fun moving the mirror around to look at other things in the room! She will laugh and laugh when she sees another person watching her through the mirror!

Yeah! for the happy news! Ms. Claire looks sooo beautiful-so glad that her ears are ok, esp after the worry there. it sure looks like she has a good big sister-that's an important job, there. Hope all are well, and so glad for y'all. YoYo is doing well-we hope to send pics soon. Lots of doctor time this week for learning things about our boy.

Can't wait to read the next post & see the next photos of that sweet face!
