Daily Dose: Wednesday, November 25

Hope relaxing in her bouncy seat!


Hope is smiling!!

Hope has had a busy few weeks doing lots of things. As you can see, Hope is growing!! She is now over 21 pounds!!

Last week, Hope went to get her hearing aids adjusted. She was put in the sound booth and responded to bass tones. This is a big step because in order to have cochlear implants her auditory nerve must be developed. We are very happy that her auditory nerve seems to be developed, paving the way for her surgery.

This week, Hope went to the eye doctor and got great news!! The eye doctor said that Hope can see!! And it will only improve from here. She is far sighted and may need glasses if that doesn't improve but quite often kids like Hope will grow out of the impairment. Hope did very well tracking and locating so the eye doctor was very happy with the progress she has made.


  1. The smiling picture is SOOOOO cute! And her weight just amazes us all! Way to go, Hope! Grandpa Robinson keeps us informed of the latest, and we rejoice that the hearing test went so well. I bet it was a great feeling to come away from a doctor appointment with GOOD news this time. Love to you all. Uncle Tom and Aunt Sue.
