We were able to spend 1 hour talking with Dr. E and going over all of our questions. She was so kind and listened to all our stories! Her laid back attitude and easy going personality made it so easy to just talk with. We were so impressed! Dr. E even laughed at us when we confessed we were adding some sweet flavor to Lottie's American formula since it wasn't as sweet as the Chinese formula. Dr. E was very impressed with Lottie's progress, health and her emotional well being. She said "I have seen many adopted children in my day, but Lottie is by far the healthiest, and happiest baby I have met. Someone loved her fiercely as she is so willing to accept and give love" Melted this Mama's heart!
Later that day we also met with our SLP & developmental specialist and they evaluated Lottie. They were also impressed with her current development! We were able to write some goals for feeding, speech, and gross motor skills. Lottie's therapists will come to our home every week and begin working on all of these goals. Her SLP was impressed with her speech and we both sat in amazement at we heard babbling sounds including /t/ /d/ & /l/...for all the SLP's out there crazy huh!
So here's some stats on our lovely Lottie Lee
She is tiny but STRONG!
She is 18 lbs 28 inches long- which puts her in the 1st & 2nd percentiles on the American growth chart.
She is above age development for social/emotional & cognitive skills.
She is healthy!
We scheduled our first appointment with our Cleft Team in Dallas and look forward to meeting the famous Dr. Hobar in person in May!
