Hear and there

Jake went for his 1 month check Monday to see if the tubes in his ears are working.
We got a good report. His hearing is in the normal range and his localization of sounds are spot on!
The tubes are doing their job.
We have seen some improvement in his hearing, but we never really noticed a lack of it before. There were some clues, but for the most part he heard the important things.
He's always responded well to vocal noises.
In the past month he has started vocalizing more, but we don't know if that is the tubes or coincidence.
He does have trouble with his consonant sounds due to learning to speak wrong with the cleft, but his vowel sounds are great.
He's working with his speech therapist weekly and us daily on the rest.
After the doctor's appointment, which was late, we went shopping for summer clothes, sandals, a few more puzzles that grandma bought for her house and a cowboy hat. Then we managed to dodge Oklahoma's storms and got home.
He also got a new Elmo video, which he watched last night and loved the dancing segment.

All very good news!

You must be so relieved :)

We love Elmo here too. Li'l Empress begs for Elboh whenever someone touches the remote :)
