Test Results & Smiles

Fisher had a follow-up hearing screening today. He had already failed the screening twice, and honestly, I was nervous. The first week he was pretty obviously not responding to any noises. Tyler made a few comments about how he'd be happy to learn sign language, which I'm sure were meant to comfort me, but I had a hard time worrying that my baby couldn't hear my voice. The past few days we thought he was responding to noises more, but I didn't want to get my hopes up in case it was just coincindence. But today he had another test at the audiology clinic and finally passed. I was relieved. I enjoyed talking to my sweet baby all day today and was very comforted to know that he could hear me.
We also got Tyler's test results back for the dental boards. He passed. He didn't just pass. He aced them. I'm allowed to say that since it wasn't me who took them, right? We're very proud of him and very relieved to have that all behind us.
And here is a cute little picture, because every post needs one. Look at that chubby smile and his relaxed little pose. What a stud.

He's adorable. Leah had some hearing issues when she was new, but they cleared up too. I'm so glad Fisher is healthy! He looks perfect. And that is awesome that Tyler did so well on his boards!

I am sorry you guys had that scare with little Fisher's hearing! I am sure it was hard to imagine something like that becoming a reality. Glad everything is fine! And congrats to Tyler for passing boards! We are getting ready for round two over here and I know it is stressful for everyone :)

What a relief...on both accounts (though I'm sure you weren't that concerned about Tyler passing). Fisher is sure a cute little man. Love that relaxed little smile!
