Many of you know from me or through word of mouth that Jeremy and I have been concerned about Luke's lack of speech. Our concern started in March when, at over 18 months old, Luke still wasn't using any words. (He definitely speaks - it's just in his own language. =D) Since then, we've had speech evaluations, hearing tests, speech therapy, and several doctors' visits, which culminated in yesterday's audio brainstem response (ABR) test held at Cook Children's. The picture above is of our brave little man coming out of anesthesia after his hearing test, which he passed with flying colors! We're so thankful, particularly after he failed a hearing test in late June, that he has no permanent, nerve-related hearing damage. It's a huge blessing!

It's been almost three weeks since I last posted, and with good reason: we've been so busy! Between my return to work, Luke's start at day care three days a week, and Jeremy's new job with more frequent travel, we have had our hands quite full. We've also spent some time planning and enjoying celebrations of Luke's 2nd birthday! It's so hard to believe that two years have passed since Luke was born. In some ways, it feels like it wasn't all that long ago that we were in the hospital meeting our little Luke. In others... wow, how long it has seemed!
