Nothing to Worry About

I mentioned a month or so ago that Jason's pediatrician had some concerns about his eyes and his speech development at his last checkup. So she had referred me to an opthomologist and an ear, nose and throat doc as well and wanted him checked out by both.

Last Tuesday I took him to Dr. Pachman, the opthomologist. Jason had a great time running in circles around the waiting room, especially after they dilated his eyes. There was this adorable baby girl in the waiting room with us and she was laughing her butt off at him. Apparently little boys running around in circles are very funny. Anyway, the doctor looked at his eyes and said there isn't anything wrong that he can see. I actually hadn't really ever seen anything myself but I figured I would just have it checked out since Jason's pedi seemed concerned. So that was a relief. That night Jason came down with some sort of stomach bug :-( After reading Amanda's blog I'm wondering if it had anything to do with his eyes being dilated...although he was running a fever, so maybe not. Either way it was sad and gross all at the same time.

Today we went and visited the ear, nose and throat doc, Dr. Mancuso. One of my friends from work had taken her son to him before and had told me all sorts of wonderful things about him and sure enough, he was great. Jason gave him two hugs while we were there and overall he was just very calm and reassuring. He looked in Jason's ears, nose and mouth and then sent us to go get a hearing test done. After much struggling and a lollipop later, we managed to get it done. Jason also managed to drool cherry lollipop all over my work cloths. Thankfully a good splashing of water and plenty of air drying on the way back to work got it out. According to Dr. Mancuso Jason's ears are fine and he hears everything I say. So his speech delay could be pure stubbornness or just the fact that he's lacked social interaction so far.

Which brings me to the next big announcement...I enrolled Jason in Preschool!! He starts on Tuesday and will attend every week on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. I'm hoping (and the doctor agrees) that the interaction with other children will help him with his speech. I'm so excited for my little guy to get to play with kids and hopefully learn a little too!

Air Show

A few weeks back the Thunderbirds were flying so we took Jason to see them. I'm still experimenting with the new video camera and I quickly learned that it is terribly difficult to take video of flying objects when it is very bright and sunny outside. It took a couple of tries but we finally got some semi-decent video of the planes. There is also a little video of Jason and I watching the planes fly.

I officially really suck at this whole video posting thing so the videos are actually in their own seperate posts...oh well!!

Purple Video Camera

So I finally went out and bought myself a video camera. I've been saying I needed one of these since before Jason was born. I didn't want to miss out on recording him when he was small...well I did. :-( Oh well, I have one now so hopefully I can make up for lost time. And it's a really pretty purple color too :-)



Here is a video I took of him the other day just walking around and being silly:

In case anyone cares I started this entry last Saturday and just now realized that I never actually published it! Sheesh...
