sounds that count

it has been a month since our little
alexander has been activated.


there have been noisy days

with lots of babbling and

quiet days
when his mind is on overload
absorbing everything his brothers are saying.

lately alexander has responded to

"bear" with a "roarrrr".

he says, "aah" and fly's an airplane.

he is also saying, "baaaall" on occasion.

he is all boy and loves any ball of any size.

my hope is there is more progress in the month to come.

i look forward to him using both ears again soon.

it will be another 3 weeks before he gets his left hearing aid back.

Alexander is further in language development than Wesley. Wesley loves to play with balls too! We went to the little park the other day and wish you were there with us. Preston was playing in the woods and Wesley was playing with balls. I love reading your blog.

Isn't it funny how, as parents, we really battle with the decision to get the implant in the first place and then once we do, we wonder why it was ever a diffuicult choice? It is so great to see him doing so well, congrats on all your hard work!

Hello, I found you off of someone else's blog. My name is Heather. My son Gavin is Deaf. He has a implant on the left and Hearing aid on the right. He is 2. He has LVA. It is exciting to hear about how well he is doing. The difference with the implant vs a hearing aid is huge. Gavin hears me 65 ft away from him, calling his name. He hears the Oven beeping in my bedroom upstairs! Now that is cool! I love the technolgy. I'm sure you feel the same. I would like to add you to my blog is that ok?
