Schuyler is my weird and wonderful monster-slayer. Together we have many adventures.
Man, this needs some kind of warning label. That's a potentially lethal level of cuteness there.
Wow, how sweet and precious is that!And hearing her say hi, hello, how wonderful!Thanks so much for sharing that. What an absolutely adorable child, brilliant!
Wow, Rob. I watched that video and kept thinking, "how can it be that there is a monster, lurking in the shadows of this beautiful, beautiful child?".It amazes me everytime you post a photo and even more so with this video, that there may be a monster there somewhere but he hasn't won. Schuyler is ever-increasingly winning by going on with life. And embracing it. And reminding all who read your blog to do the same.
Those last frames are priceless.
okay...I am an idiot. I am only getting sound, no video. Please help me.
also, what song is that? I lvoe it. Especially considering I can't see a darn thing....
Is Schuyler's speech still that hypernasal? Has the slp discussed a palatal lift for the treatment of velopharyngeal impairment?
Beautiful. Loved the expert stair descending and the classic 'pitching stuff out of the bathtub' shots. And that laugh!Lovely.
What a great kid! It's obvious from a young age how much of a bond she has with you. Thanks for sharing!
Wah, missing software that is not available on the Quicktime site won't let me see the video. :-(
Is Schuyler's speech still that hypernasal? Has the slp discussed a palatal lift for the treatment of velopharyngeal impairment?Schuyler's speech? Is nonexistent. Her impairment is neurological in nature, not due to a cleft palate. Surgery would do nothing for her, according to the University of Chicago.
How cute! And what a great editing job you did.
Hypernasal? Wow. If Schuyler had a voice to speak of, I am sure that "hypernasal" would be the smallest concern amid all the rejoicing, eh?I didn't notice anything "hypernasal" in the video. I noticed a beautiful, joyful child, giddy with life. The way every child should be.
Rob--here's a site for coding to embed videos: http://freevlog.org/popup/
A palatal lift is a removable prosthesis that elevates the soft palate. It's not surgery and you don't need to have a cleft palate. It can treat one neurological problem, limited or no movement of the soft palate that can result in extreme hypernasal speech. Children with CBPS don't have surgery to treat VPI because of the risk of sleep apnea. It wouldn't take the place of the bbow but you and Julie might be able to understand more of what Schuyler says.
Chubbin chubbin chubbin! I've followed Schuyler from "Grub to Chub." She's really growing up so fast. The Chubbin is swiftly starting to look like the woman she will someday be. I didn't ask my one free question before, but... How's Petey? :)
By the way, how do your pronounce Schuyler's name? I always imagined it as Shoo-ler. But it sounded vaugely like Skyler in the video... I couldn't completely tell.
I also had missing software that wouldn't let me see it :(
Schuyler's name is pronounced Skyler. Schuyler is just a prettier way to spell it.
Ok, since nobody says it, I will: Rob, Julie is very very cute!!!! That Itsy Bisty Spider thing is too sweet--she deserves one MEGA wonderful day at the spa just for keeping it all together the way she does. Julie is a hero.
I loved seeing that video, Rob. Those toddler moments are so fleeting. I'm glad you got to bottle them up and pour them out to share with us here on your blog. By the way, loving the blog. You're blogtastic!
