Shoes and Tubes

Another busy week here...

Monday we went for a check up on our orthotics.  He said they look great and that the Robeez were a fine shoe.  He just wants her in a shoe that prevents slipping.  The orthotics provide all the support she needs.  ( I have been all over town looking for SHOES for her and come up empty.  The closest that I got was Robeez minis, but thought that the Robeez 1st Stepz might work too--Also Itzy Bitzy...which is what she was wearing in a ZERO...would likely work in a 2 or 3 and not be so heavy like real tennis shoes)  It will be interesting to see our PT this week who had wanted her to be wearing real shoes by now.

Wednesday morning we were all to the dentist.  He is impressed how much she loves brushing her teeth and she sat mostly patient in her stroller while the four of us had our cleanings.  Ella told Aubrey that she needs to have more teeth to clean before she can sit in the moving chair and get a prize!  I agree:)

In the afternoon, she had her follow up at the ENT.  They were speechless over the fact that her ears were completely clear of fluid!!!  They just couldn't believe it!  So back to the booth for a good hearing test.  I couldn't have been more excited to get a test!  She does in fact have a mild hearing loss.  So there will be no tubes for now, unless she starts to keep fluid again.  YEAH!  They referred us to place that will do further testing and then hearing aids if they feel it is necessary.  The only problem is that because of her age, they like to have two audiologist present and the earliest appointment is the END OF JULY!  We're hoping for someone to cancel this week:)  Will keep you posted though.

I spoke with our speech teacher and requested her to come weekly and she said depending on the loss, Aubrey might qualify to work with the Audiologist through ECI/school district as well even if she doesn't get the aids.  We see her next week.

And to follow up a really busy week...Aubrey showed us a new trick...climbing up the ladder on the playset!
She actually got all the way to the third step before I pulled her off!
"No more unsupervised play time for you missy!"

We love you, you little monkey!
