Last Friday Grace had an appointment to get her ear mold for her hearing aid. We are pretty excited. It was a long wait for medicaid to approve it (over a month of waiting), but now we can finally go ahead with the ear mold. She should get her hearing aid in 2 weeks. Mom got to pick out the color which was fun, pink with pink glitter. I really hope Grace likes pink because she doesn't get much of a say...mom loves it and that is the way it is! We hope it helps and hope she doesn't hate it too much!
Other news...we got the report back from one of Grace's therapist. She did an evaluation before Grace had gotten sick to see the progress she has made since she came home from the hospital in November (she was 2 months old). Developmentally Grace is at 2-3 months, even though she is now 7 1/2 months old. It is hard to hear, but we know that Grace will be behind other kids her age. It is hardest when we are around other babies Grace's age...your mind naturally wonders thinking Grace should be doing those things. But we take one day at a time and are so happy with all of the things that Grace can do. We are so proud of how far she has come since we brought her home at 2 months old in November. We have seen huge improvements in the last 5 months...she is much calmer and is able to calm herself when she is upset. She is also babbling non-stop...she has so many stories to tell. She will give us little smiles and I cry nearly every time she does! She is working at holding her head up and is getting better. And new this week...Grace started tummy time and doesn't mind it too much! YEAH! We are so proud of Grace for all she can do and continue to get excited for every little thing she learns!
So for now...thank you for all of the prayers.
