Eyes and Ears

To help rule out hearing and vision problems contributing to some of Nicholas’ frustrations we tackled both appointments this week.  We were curious how you test a 1.5 month olds eyes and ears, but both doctors had a plan and had definitely done it before.  For the eye test they held up objects at different distances to see how his dilated eyes reacted.  It turns out he is slightly near sighted which is expected of kids his age.  His hearing test was done sitting on my lap in a sound proof room.  They would play a sound and then a little fury animal would jump up and down from the same corner to validate that a sound just came from there.  It was quite fascinating to be a part of both tests and we are happy to report he passed everything with flying colors.
