Since it's been a while, I'll give a very brief recap on the last several months for Brynn:
-- Implants are working marvelously! Brynn even smiles each time we turn them on after nights and naps.
-- She is expected to progress a little faster than a normal hearing child with activation day being "the day her ears were born." Thanks to the help of great therapists, she's right on schedule and doing well. With any luck, she will be caught up to her hearing peers for both speech and language by either kindergarten or first grade.
-- Her willingness to eat orally is coming along, too--she'll stick out her tongue and lick foods that seem safe. More and more, she'll try new things but chips remain her favorite.
-- Her motor skills are finally catching up! She learned to crawl and walk all at once and is getting better and better at cruising around the house. For the first time in her 20 months of life, Brynn is finally mobile!
Oh yes, and for all those who don't know yet:
I'm PREGNANT! And it's another GIRL (YAY)! I'm due November 19th, which means that in a little less than 3 weeks, I will be the same number of weeks that I was when my water broke with Brynn. Let's hope I can keep this little one in the oven for a much, much longer.
I'd show some ultrasound pictures, but the new perinatal specialist docs doing my sonograms are very talented at getting really creepy-looking photos. I feel like I have an alien growing in me instead of a cute little girl.
Now, for the part that everyone really wants:
Imagine hearing a "mmmMMMMM" on this one:
Not sure if she trusts Daddy's attempts at getting a smile for the camera:
Brynn is not a fan of sitting in grass:
