18 Month Well Check...

On Friday the babies had their 18 month well check, even though they will be 19 months on the 22nd of this month. With last month being so busy this was the closest we could get to the 18 month mark. The Pedi said they are all looking really good for being born 11 weeks early. The Pedi said she would have never thought L and D were preemies just by looking at them. C is a little more behind since he isn't walking yet and due to the hearing loss he isn't speaking but other than that Pedi say C looks great.

L:
Height 31" 25%
Weight 20 lbs 11 oz 3%
Head Circumference 18 1/2 inches 45%
Teeth: 14

Signs Language 10 signs

C:
Height 31.2" 25%
Weight 20 lbs 9 oz 3%
Head Circumference 18 1/2 inches 45%
Teeth: 16

D:

Tanna,

Cormac is the first person in our family to have hearing loss. They don't believe it has anything to do with being born early because he wasn't that early and his brothers are fine. He also wasn't any any high doses of antibiotics which can cause hearing loss. Chances are we might never know what caused his hearing loss but we want to check and see if it was genetic. It's just a simple blood test but has to be drawn by a genetic specialist. Your implant center could probably direct you to a doctor if you chose to have him tested.

As for the parts, just send me your address and I will mail them out to you. Don't worry about the postage. My email is jennifer.wallace27@verizon.net. I don't want you to post your address on the blog! I will check for extra coils as well. We went through a lot of them in the beginning and they are $35 a pop and not covered by insurance!
