I just got a letter from the Tennessee Department of Health asking for proof of Everly’s newborn hearing screening. Since she was born there and the screening is required by law I’ve got to have the testing done and send them the proof. I am pretty sure her hearing is fine though.
I know this because she
loves actually I should say she’s fine with loud noises. Once N wore her and ran around the house vacuuming, she slept well while all this was going on. I tweeted about this and even captured a photo of it.
Then I experimented with running the vacuum while E was having one of her crying, fussy fits and she quieted right down. Later that night N and I enjoyed eating dinner together while we ran the vacuum to calm her again.
This last weekend I was itching to get out of the darn house and do something so we gathered E and her things up and ventured out to the fair. We had no intention of riding rides, we just wanted to go for the food, booths and for some possible entertainment.
We found ourselves enjoying the antiques and animals that were there just fine. I couldn’t resist the huge cow. I love me anything that is cow!
I ended up getting a delicious caramel apple and some iced tea. N got a corn dog, a funnel cake and some iced tea. While he was ordering his food and the whole time he was eating it poured rain and everyone took cover where they could.
Eventually once the rain was dumping less we wandered towards the demolition derby madness and E was quite content with the noise.
Yesterday while we were laying down for an afternoon nap this intense clap of thunder sounded and I woke from my nap nearly jumping out of my skin. She didn’t budge a single inch.
Some babies freak out at the slightest sounds, mine doesn’t mind. I actually think she kind of likes the sounds as opposed to the quite. It’s perfectly fitting for us and our lifestyle.
