All About Kaitlyn

Kaitlyn has been busy meeting many BIG milestones. We are so proud of her. In a two week time frame she mastered ALL her new 6 month goals in OT and PT. Her biggest delay at the moment is speech. We constantly work on language stimulation, strengthening her mouth muscles and imitating her noises but she just doesn't have much to say. To be honest I'm not very concerned. She has made huge strides with her gross and fine motor skills. How much can the girl do at one time?! We are continuously monitoring Kaitlyn's ears. She has some fluid but continues to pass all her hearing tests. Regardless her hearing is muffled and they are worried that is contributing to her lack of speech. If the fluid stays tubes are in her future. Below are some SUPER cute pictures of Kaitlyn making funny faces. These faces are quite new and very exciting for us. She's moving her mouth and blowing bubbles which is a start in the right direction speech wise.
