P had her follow up appointment with her pediatrician to get her nasty ear cleaned out. I wish I would have taken a picture of the gunk that the doc pulled out. It was disgusting. She then had her ear retested and it wasn't 100% but it was ok. They are going to retest it at her two year appointment because she had a little fluid in her ear.
Today the two therapists came to see P and see if she needed speech therapy. They told me that she was way beyond 22 months as far as her motor skills. She is a balancing, climbing, running, jumping fool. They also said usually boys are the rowdy ones and it was nice to see a little girl that was crazy haha. They also said she is fine as far as comprehending and understanding language but needs some help with expressive language. She needs to learn how to express herself with her words. So she will be starting speech therapy soon. They will help her learn to use words and teach me how to help her! I am excited to get it started. And did I mention how relieved I am that her hearing came back pretty good (the one ear still makes me wonder if it is ever going to be 100% but hey at least it works pretty good)? It's so nice not to have to worry about that anymore.
In other news, balloons fly over our house like every single night. It makes me miss ballooning so much. I am seriously trying to talk dustin into getting into ballooning. I wanna fly dangit. P had her first up close view of a balloon when it landed across the street from us the other night. Usually when they fly over she yells and points and dances around. She is so excited. When it was SO close she went crazy. She took off running for it. When it finally landed (after chasing it down the walking path) she ran right up to it and didn't even flinch when the pilot hit the burner. I'm telling you, it's in her blood.
