So last week we had our baby and it's a boy! So very exciting. I didn't care if it was a boy or girl, but it will be nice having one of each around the house. He is doing very well, and is very happy for the most part. We are going in Monday for his 2-week-old hearing test because he failed both tests in the hospital after he was born. We haven't had any deaf in either family except for me, and my hearing could pass for normal mostly until I was like 20 years old. I think my threshold in high frequencies was like 30-40 dB when I was about 8 years old and it has pretty much degraded linearly since then to about 75-85 dB now. Odds are very high he is hearing and just has fluid in his ears.
