Tiny had her 18th month old appointment yesterday. Her current stats: 22lbs 17oz, 23 inches long, and 18 inches. Her current percentiles length 75th, her head 30th and her weight has dropped from 50th to 30th. The doctor is not very concerned right now because of how active she is and because her exam showed her to be perfectly healthy. HOWEVER he has scheduled her back in 2 months instead of 6 months for a weight check.
Recently my poor girl has been teething so hard. She is working on 4 teeth and is not handling it very well. She has been running a fever off and on for a week and refuses to eat more than few bites. She is becoming easily frustrated because she can't tell us what she wants. She points to things but when it takes us more than a minute to figure out what she wants she FREAKS out sooo bad. She's screaming and crying more than she is smiling anymore. She's having a hard time falling asleep and staying asleep. The doctor says this is all normal. My poor baby. I hope these teeth erupt soon!!! The funny part is she was all smiles at the doctors!!
Teagan has her first visit with her new speech therapist, Felicia on Monday. Felicia is great. Teagan is not falling too much behind. We learned a few new things to help her start using her voice more. Teagan is repeating things like crazy anymore which is great! Her doc says that they want kids her age using 3-6 words on there own. Teagan knows and uses Hello (enro) Bye Bye (buh buh) Night Night (ni-ni) and Mommy (mamah) When prompted Teagan can say , Banana (BuhNana), I love you (I wuv ew), I did it (did it), Gramme (Amme), Aunt Dot, Mike (Mi), Tommy (ommy), I don't know (i dono), duck (ack, ack).
She can sign: more, eat, thank you, book, baby, bug, milk, ball.
She can understand and follow directions such as : Get your baby. Where is your milk?, Where is mommy (aunt dot, teddy, aunt dee, mike, dog, cat, sheep, cow, chicken, horse.) Get your blankey and a bunch more.
She knows where and will point when asked to her Tummy, head, ears, eyes nose, mouth and toes.
She is doing so much and we are all very impressed with how far along she has come.
Tomorrow she has an appointment with Melinda so we can check her aids and possibly get her new more powerful aids. I am hoping with as early as she needs to be up and with her current teething situation she will be ok at this appointment.
So that's about it. Every time I Blink an eye i swear this kid is learning
Teagan and I are just so busy lately! This week has been a not so great week. I had court on Monday for Tiny's father and it did not go well. Unfortunately Teagan seems to be feeling some of the stress and started having some pretty bad temper tantrums. Luckily after a few days I was able to get to a better place and Tiny has been following suit!
In GREAT news. She is repeating so many words now. They are far from clear but we know what she is saying. My favorite of Course is. "I- Love- You- MAMA!!!" Her signing is getting much clearer too. I am very proud of my little girl. Her speech therapist has finally called and Monday we will be setting up her first appointment! I am very excited but a little scared all the teachers are a lot to handle in an already hectic schedule but for Tiny.. ANYTHING! Miss Robyn says she is doing really well and currently we are working with Teagan to make simple choices (example holding two puzzle pieces out and asking her to chose the duck) I am so proud of my little girl!!!
Gosh it's been awhile since I've updated this thing! Life is been so pleasantly busy lately and with this nice weather being inside on the computer is soooo NOT an option! :)
Tiny has been doing so well. I am so proud of her. She is TALKING and Signing up a storm. I can't believe how much progress she has made since she got her hearing aids back! It's gonna be even better in a couple of weeks when she gets them adjusted. The CI's are NOT an option at this time. Unless she goes completely deaf in her left ear as well they will not be an option. However new, more powerful aids are in the works. I hope we can get them in pink again! :)
On April 2nd Teagan woke up at 12:36AM very sick! My poor girl was throwing up all over the place. Apparently she had caught the bug that was going around. This was the first time she has been sick since she was 8 weeks old. It was a very scary time but luckily it was only a 12 hour bug and by 1pm she was getting into everything and acting like herself again. I hope we don't have anymore sickness for a long time.
Easter was amazing. We had a such a great time. She looked so grown in her Easter dress. The Easter Bunny(ies) were VERY generous and she tried to get into all the candy she could. I had to hide most of it. lol This kid is obsessed with Peanut Butter. She loves Reese Pieces. Mike got her a giant chocolate bunny and I didn't think she would be able to open it Low and Behold kiddo had that thing open in seconds. lol She has so much fun running around with her cousin Nicole, Lindsey and Payton. They are so good with her. They gave her this beautiful lady bug doll.
We Missed Gramme and Grampy VERY MUCH but I was very grateful that we got to spend time with them via Webcam. We can't wait for their visit home in July.
When Tiny wakes up from her nap we are going outside to enjoy this beautiful day. I am so excited its suppose to be so warm this week. it's such a treat after the bitter weekend! Time to go get the little one some summer clothes.
