Gwyneth had two appointments at Duke this week...the first on Tuesday with her special infant care doctor, the second was with her pulmonologist on Wednesday. The short of it is that everyone was incredibly happy with her progress.
We had been a little concerned the past several months that Gwyneth had only gained about 1 1/2 lb. since about June, but it turns out that the reason is she's also grown about about 4 inches during that time...she's now 30 inches tall!
She also had a psych/development exam...the doctor reports that her development is kind of all over the place. She is very advanced for her age in some areas, and very delayed in others, which means, she averages out to about your normal 22 month old. The biggest "issue" the doctor observed is that Gwyneth knows in her head how to do things, but she's having trouble communicating that to the rest of her body (walking, for example)...but, that will come with time and is nothing to be concerned about.
It is very obvious that the glasses and ear tubes have helped her tremendously, as we're seeing her learn and discover new things more quickly. We're very excited to see what the next big step for her will be!
