and her name is amber. :) She finally has hair. yea!! I thought this day would never come.
Amber at 23 months:
She is at 21lb, so she very happily rides face forward in the car now. She talks quite a bit, but you can tell that she has a slight hearing problem by the extent of the garble some word sounds have. The docs continue to say that there is nothing we can do for her hearing at this point. We're very lucky that the hearing loss is only partial, and only in one ear.

Wow faceing forward and all. I bet she's much happier with that.
They grow so fast. I remember the itty bitty baby when A came to you so early on in your pregnancy.

And, please, dont take this the wrong way, but do consider having her ride facing back in the car for ta least another year, and preferably two. If an accident happens, they are so much more protected when their heads can't snap forward. Whiplash on a grown is painful and can even be disabling, but on a little child it can be devastating.

Whiplash on a grown is painful and can even be disabling, but on a little child it can be devastating.
She is still in a full infant carseat, so whiplash wouldn't be an issue. :smile: The only difference in the forward/backward issue is that she would no longer be 'cradled' into the seat in case of an accident. This is actually much safer for her, because she is much to long to be safely cradled in the event of a crash. lol. She may not weigh much, but she is really tall!

Oh what a cutie-pie! It seems like you just came from the hospital a few months ago. Hard to believe it's been 2 years.
