Hip Ultrasound

I took Hunter today to have an ultrasound done on his hips. Apparently when a baby is breech, their hips have a chance of not developing correctly. So his pediatrician, as well as the physical therapist, suggested that we have the ultrasound done. The physical therapist even said that Torticollis (the problem with his neck) and problems with infant's hips go hand in hand... weird.

He was so good during the ultrasound... he just sat there and put his little fist in his mouth while the doctor messed with his hips and rubbed that weird gel everywhere. He only cried once during the whole thing but the rest of the time, he just looked at the nurse and the doctor and cooed at them. He even stared at the ultrasound monitor screen to see what was going on.

The doctor said that everything looked great and that his hips were fine. So we are on our way to a healthy little boy! We just need to round out that head now... :P
