Ashlyn's Ears Part Two we had yet another hearing test done with Ashlyn (this makes 4 total). The results were still not good with her left ear. Not the results the new pediatric ENT we are taking her to wanted to see. We have a catscan set up for December 23rd to see what could be causing it and we have an appointment with the ENT on January 19th to see if she's a candidate for a hearing aide in that ear.

My gut feeling tells me that since she was never diagnosed with the submucous cleft palate, she's had so much fluid build-up in her ears over the last 7 years, and it has caused permanent damage. I'm only hoping that the her ear drum can get the amplification needed to be able to hear better with a hearing aide. I can only imagine that this would probably help some with her speech also in the long run.

Sitting with Santa at the Mall & CCA Christmas Program

Here's some more pictures of the girls with Santa at the mall from our camera on December 5th.

Then on Tuesday December 7th, the girls had their Christmas program for school. Each grade did two songs. 1st grade sang two songs and 3rd grade played one song on the recorder and sang another. They were so cute. I will post video of each of them when we finally get our cable to connect the camera to our computer. Wai-po & Wai-gong came and got to enjoy the show. The girls were really happy they could come. Ashlyn's making some pretty interesting face expressions in her picture!

Downtown Disney, Children's Choir Program, & Hair Cuts

On Sunday November 28th, 2010, we met my friend Sundi, her husband Eric, and her mom Charlene at Downtown Disney. We walked around, ate lunch at Earl of Sandwich, and got pictures with Santa. It was nice seeing my friends and hanging out with them!

On Saturday December 4, 2010, the PB&J Kid's Choir performed their GPS Program. Both Kaylyn & Ashlyn had solos in the program. They both were so cute. When we download the video to the computer, which requires us purchasing a cable to be able to do so, I will download some footage of their solos. Everyone was so proud of Ashlyn and how far she'd come! She is such a ham with her dancing.

After the show, we went up to Viera to the Avenues and got the girls hair cut at Snip Its. They always love getting their hair cut there. We get it trimmed every few months to keep it growing as healthy as we can. Their hair is getting longer. Plus we are getting our family pictures done tomorrow.
