I actually took a few videos, but this one (not the best one) was the only one I could get to upload here :( Anyhow, look at him go! He's also very close to being able to go from all fours to a sitting position.
I've been watching him closely to see what differences I notice since he got the tubes placed in his ears. It's funny because when we put him on Zantac for reflux, people were telling me "Just wait, the difference will be like night and day!" The reality? Not so much. Honestly, I'm not even sure he actually has reflux. I mean, he was always a spit-uppy baby, but the Zantac has NOT made a world of difference in his sleep habits, temperament, or anything else. It was the same thing with the tubes: "Oh, it'll make such a difference for him!" Well, maybe . . . I'm still waiting. He is snorting less (even his PT noticed that this morning), which I assume is due to less congestion, he does seem to be responding to the cacaphony around him a bit more (not drastically, though), and he does seem to be babbling a bit more than before. The first night after he got the tubes, he only woke up once during the night, which is a big change for Mr. Wakeful, and at first I was like "Hallelujah, the tubes are helping him sleep better!" But last night it was back to his usual routine of repeted waking, so I don't know. Anyhow, if it minimizes ear infections and helps with his hearing and speech, those are the most important things.
