Audiology, 15 month check up and what's a quahog?

Miss Emmie has had a busy week. PT on Tuesday, an audiology appointment on Wednesday and today she began her day with her 15 month check up followed by ST. She weighs a whopping 18 pounds!! All that in a 27 inch frame, compact cuteness!

She ended her appointment with four shots. I yelled stop when they attempted a fifth. The fifth was her second H1N1 shot. I'll be in the office again in a couple of weeks with Bella for her well check up, it can certainly wait until then.

Next was her Speech Therapy. Surprisingly she had a great time. I thought she would be out of it because of her doctor visit, and was even wondering what I was thinking when I scheduled them back to back like that, but Miss E had a blast. Then immediately fell into a deep sleep. She was completely tuckered out.

Her audiology appointment yesterday went well too. They are pretty sure her hearing is fine. They have come to the conclusion that she basically ignores the ridiculous sounds they are trying to get her attention with and would much rather concentrate on their faces. Hopefully they are right and if there are any hearing issues they will be very minor. They will check her again in three months.

And to answer the question some of you had from my previous post. What is a quahog?
It's a stuffed clam! The big ones. Also called a Stuffie.

What a busy little girl! She was tuckered out for sure! Thanks for clarifying what a quahog was! haha. Never have heard of that one! Wow... 18 pounds! Justin is almost 21 months it is still at the 19 pound mark as of today!

What a busy sleepy girl. Glad to hear ST and audiology went well. Is there a reason why they test her hearing that way? Our department is still doing a BAER test every six months until she is old enough for the "sound booth" type test.
BTW, Lindsey and Emmie have the same taste in boots. Same color and all.

A quahog sounds kind of gross!!! Do you have any pictures? Glad all appointments went well!! I have been thinking that I should be pushing for Ella to get speech therapy.

Oh my! That is the cutest picture ever! I love it when Pres just falls flat out asleep in the middle of something like that!
So happy her Audiology appt went well, say a prayer for Pres... she failed a hearing test today so we are off for further tests in the hopes it is just fluid behind her ear drum!
Kisses to Emmie please!

Wow busy busy little girl...but all good stuff. Love that picture, how adorable is that, she must have been totally drained to pass out on her chair. I hate shots, Saira is due but still she's still not recovered from her cold so has to wait.
