Today was quite the busy day for everyone. I met with Carter's new developmentalist, and I must say that I was very impressed with her. She seemed very optimistic about what Carter can do, and enthusiastic about getting started. She will be the one who oversees his developmental therapy. She said that an occupational therapist will come to our home 1-2 times a month, a hearing specialist will come once a month, and a vision specialist once a month. Carter doesn't seem to have anything wrong with his vision, but he can qualify for services just because he can't close that eye very well. We'll take all of the help that we can get.

Carter's ENT came to see him today and decided that he didn't need the sleep apnea test. The only time that he's had problem with apnea is when he was on sedation, so they feel there's no reason for it. They want to see Carter back in two weeks, and then he'll have his lip surgery done two weeks after that. He'll get the tube put in his ear at that time as well.

Movin right along! Awesome! Thanks for all the updates. I'm glad your little man passed the carseat test. We had to bring Bennett home in one of those car beds bc he failed it twice. It was a pain. So glad good things are happening!
