My Little Guy is six today! I cannot believe how fast (and slow) the past six years have gone by. Bubs continues to amaze and challenge me. He is strong willed, cuddly, silly, creative, stubborn, sensitive, opinionated, and very curious. Noah loves kindergarten and has become quite the avid reader. His current favorite books are Henry and Mudge and Froggy and, of course, anything with Super Heroes or Star Wars. Recently, he and Daddy began reading The Hobbit. Noah follows along, every night, and loves to tell Daddy when he read a word wrong or when he needs to turn the page. Bubs also loves math and has memorized all his math facts with sums to ten. I am so very proud of my little intellectual.
The successes that Bubs has academically are balanced by the challenges he has physically. Noah's latest audiology test showed slight hearing loss in his left ear and significant hearing loss in his right. We are fortunate to be working with a great audiology team at Noah's school. His AMAZING teacher wears a microphone that transmits directly to his BAHA so Noah can focus on her voice.
Noah has also had a string of illnesses including the flu, pneumonia, and ear infections. These illnesses along with some severe constipation issues have lead to very little physical growth for my guy over the past two years. Kc is working hard to tweak his blended diet and we will be meeting with a GI doctor to try and solve some of his "tummy troubles". We are hoping this will lead to some growth.
Noah's current stats are:
Weight: 42 pounds
Height: 44 inches
Noah continues to be the most sensitive and tender big brother ever!
