Cat got your tongue?

Earlier this month we took Grant and Wesley to the Ear, Nose & Throat Specialist to see if they were tongue-tied. Sure enough - they were. Not severely but definitely enough that their lingual frenulums needed to be clipped. I have learned that "tongue-tiedness" is an inherited trait. They were able to clip Wesley's frenulum at the ENT but, unfortunately, Grant's will involve out-patient surgery. It gets slightly more complicated the older you get.

Wesley handled the procedure like a champ. He cried for a couple minutes and then flirted with a lady while we were checking out. He was in the best mood the rest of the day and has really begun to jabber.

  1. Charlie had that problem - they caught it early (less than a few weeks old) because we were having trouble nursing. Hope all goes well for Grant!
