Harper had speech therapy again yesterday. Usually she is great at participating and seems to enjoy it. Yesterday she wouldn't repeat most of what we were saying to her. I had noticed this pattern when we had practiced her "Learning to Listens" this past week. She has begun to default to her usual "bye bye or ba ba" as an answer to everything. Also, instead of saying "uh oh" very plainly, she has been saying "uh uh". I just chalked it up to a bad week, teething (3 or 4 new teeth this week for a total of 13), stubbornness, or laziness.
When I explained this to the speech therapist and she witnessed her behavior yesterday, she had cause for concern. Supposedly, this is a sign of progressive hearing loss. She will go see the audiologist tomorrow for further testing. I just don't think I am prepared for the hearing loss to get worse.
On a happy note, I am currently listening to Harper play "Peep-Eye" with herself when she is supposed to be napping. It sounds like "P-Pie P-Pie P-Pie". Hilarious.
