I should have known something was up with the first ear infection. A couple of weeks after that one went away, the cough came. The doctor said it was the croup and then he checked his ears. The tube in Seth's right ear had moved and was no longer doing its job of draining the ear properly--hence two ear infections in a month and a half. So, here we go back to the ENT. For the second round of tubes, your adenoids come out as well. We have been reassured by our pediatrician that this also will take care of ear infections. Well, why didn't they go ahead and take their adenoids out when they put the first tubes in? Geez. His surgery is scheduled for the middle of April. I know I should not complain one bit--and I don't mind as long as it is helping his health.
Seth recently started singing. He loves to sing, "Wheels on the Bus," "Itsy Bitsy Spider," and "Take Me Out to the Ballgame." He sings along with the Wiggles and Elmo as well. This has happened within the last two weeks. It is just so amazing how these skills evolve. He is also saying his ABCs and counting to 20 all the time. We can put him down for his nap and he is in there, "A.....B......C.....D....EFG..." It is a hoot.
