Shannon- my DD just had tubes put in both her ears due to fluid, not infections. Her language exploded within the first month and now is back to just 4-5 words. And those words are not the full word, like dog is missing the end g... We constantly just keep using the same words over and over and hopefully at this 18 month appt we will not have any flags from the Pedi. I've been working with the B sound and some times she says it, but mostly not. Pedi has never been worried, but I'm the worrier.
As for weight gain, I've heard great things about avocados. DD will eat them, in small qty, but that is just her. A small qty eater. Good luck! And it is good to see you (we were in the due date room together).
