Hi everyone...I finally made it over here! I may not be able to post as much as I'd like because I only have internet access here at work and since I bring Miles with me everyday...I'm not getting much work done most of the time. I haven't mastered the one hand typing thing at all!

Miles and I are doing fine. He's cute and healthy, weighing in at 12 lbs at his 2 mon check up.

Here are some pics and a video of him smiling.

Check out Miles tongue in this video. It's heart shaped on the end. He's "tongue-tied" and may need to have surgery to fix it. Do any of you have experience with this condition?

Yay, glad you made it over here! Miles is adorable. I can't believe he's 12 pounds already. We just had Alex weighed at 5 mos and he's only 14#5 oz. Alex is a skinny little thing.

As for the tongue-tie, my brother is tongue-tied. My parents didn't go to doctors, so they left it alone. He's fine, speech and eating are fine, he just can't stick his tongue out at anyone. He does wish it had been fixed when he was little, but wouldn't mess with it now (he's 39).

Thanks for the welcome!

Kathryn, thanks also for the info about your brother. We haven't decided what to do about Miles' tongue. His dr. seems very reluctant to do anything about it this young but if we are going to get it fixed, I'd like to do it BEFORE it could possibly affect his speech.

BTW...Miles can stick his tongue out ...it just has a big dent on the end.

As for being tongue tied, DS was tongue tied and DD is a little (not to the extent DS was). Get it taken care of now. The ENT we went to said that it is better to get it taken care of sooner rather than later (like before it would affect speech). He said he would even do it for the simple reason that a child could be made fun of for not being able to eat an ice cream cone like their friends. For DD we are looking to take her to the ENT sometime around 6 months to get it taken care of. It is a VERY simple procedure. They don't even give the little ones anesthesia for it. We only had one appointment and they took care of it during that time! For DS, they just opened his mouth, took a scissors, and SNIP! That was it. He cried a little, but we had a bottle of juice with us that we gave to him which calmed him quickly. It was no worse for him than getting a shot at the doctor's office. I don't understand why his doctor is reluctant to do anything about it at this time. I think it would be a LOT easier to get it done while they are little and don't have the fear of doctors and can get over the things more quickly. Plus they hold a lot more still than a slightly older child would, which I think would further complicate a very simple procedure.

What a cutie! It sounds like Laura gave you some good advice on the tongue tie. If it were me, I'd probably do something now too. Sally has a droopy eyelid, and we go to the eye dr in a few weeks to see if we need to do anything, mostly for her vision. I think even cosmetic things can be important to correct if it's a real problem and it's safe, if for no other reason than that kids are just so dang mean to each other.
