Ella had her first vision and hearing tests today. They used an eye chart with various symbols. The nurse brought Ella up close and asked her about all the shapes to see what she would call them before having her stand further away and cover one eye. For the hearing test she told Ella to say beep whenever she heard a beep. Ella tried to match the tone of the beep when she said beep. So there were some high pitched beeps and some lower ones. The doctor said Ella is doing very well and is almost a year ahead on some things. And the fact that she eats any vegetables at all makes her better than most 4 year olds.

Abby did not want to let the doctor listen to heart, look in her ears or look in her eyes. But mommy held her hands out of the way so the doctor could do her thing. And then poor Abby had to get 2 shots and get blood drawn. What fun! Ella was relieved she did not have to do either or those things. The doctor said Abby is doing great and will be running before we know it.
