Bryce's first report card

We received a report from Bryce's appointment at the NICU follow-up clinic today. A few excerpts:

"Regarding neurodevelopment - he has made nice progress over the last several months - he is rolling over, reaches for objects and grasps them."

"On the IHDP Growth Curve for very low birth weight premature boys, his weight was at the 75th percentile, his height was between the 75th and 95th percentile, and his head circumference was between the 75th and 95th percentile."

"His heart had regular rate and rhythm with no murmur appreciated."

"His back is straight. His hips are without clicks or clunks. He moves all extremities equally and has normal tone in his upper and lower extremities."

"His automatic reactions ... were all age appropriate. He was able to track visually within all planes and turn to sounds and voice. His receptive and expressive language were also within normal limits for age."

"His fine motor skills were age appropriate.."

"Overall, we are delighted with Bryce's growth and developmental progress."

Sounds like all A's to me! Print this post


  1. I think the last comment sums it up nicely: "we are delighted with Bryce's" progress!

  2. Jason and Christie, take a bow!!
    Just as the coaches are happy with the medals their students receive in the Olympics, so too should you be pleased with all the work, loss of sleep, abstinence from certain foods, etc. and the tremendous gift of your love that brought Bryce to this point. Well done!

  3. Yay!!!! For the record, we don't appreciate murmurs in our house either.... ;)
