3 months old now. My wife is preparing to celebrate the baby's 1st "Conceiveday" :) (basically 1 year since her Conception)

Biggest news; she is Severely-Profoundly Deaf with a hearing threshhold of 80-100 decibels according to the most recent audiologist data. Reacts more to visual and tactile stimulus. Wife's family have history of infrequent deafness (every few generations or so), this is first time there was consecutive deafness, wife an then our child. Me, I was born hearing, lost it at around 2 and half to 3 years old to Spinal Menegitis.

She's gaining weight and size nicely.
Sleeping longer between feeds at night,

Starting to grab toys and things now... after grabbing my beard hair and shirts

Doesn't seem to be colicky/crying a lot, just when hungry, when shitting hard, and when she doesn't want to sleep.

You dond good @CamoDeafie

Truly sorry about the deafness. But her daddy has adapted and overcame. With your guidance, she will too.
Do not be sorry, it was always a 50/50 chance, her mother is also deaf, so we are prepared as best as we can be to raise her well :) this however puts a renewed focus on finding the best deaf educational opportunities for her that we can find, as well as a deaf community that shares similar values to our beliefs and values.

Just thinking @CamoDeafie . My grandson is only a couple of months behind your daughter. Who knows, in about 20 years or so we might be in-laws! (Outlaws, relations, or something!) (I know, you just threw up in your mouth a little!)
Hahahahaha only if they end up meeting at college/university :rolleyes:
