FINALLY!

Christian received his hearing aids today, and he's doing great. He hasn't tried to pull them off (knock on wood), and the ear molds fit great! We are so excited, and can't wait to spend the long holiday weekend with him, and helping him understand sound. I've uploaded a video that includes his first time with aids...click here!

We are blessed!
Have a great weekend!

Christina and Chuck,
Congratulations! You are on your way...that video was amazing, still drying the eyes - Christian is ADORABLE, those cheeks and his eyes...his reactions were amazing. I'm really happy for both of you that this first big step has gone so well. Now, TALK ON! Love, Jodi
(Thanks for posting, I was wondering about you guys! PS. Consider your video stolen :))Can I quote you on the nice things you say about your husband? Jodi

Wow- Christian is so cute! The video made me cry- I am glad you posted it, though now I really want to get Nolan's hearing aids! He's only got a moderate loss, but I am anxious for him to hear EVERYTHING we say instead of 50% or so of what we say!

He's such an adorable and happy baby! Congratulations on reaching this huge milestone in your journey.
Hugs,

Tears, tears, tears!

What an amazing video. You have serious talent.

Christian is such a gorgeous boy! He had a great reaction to the HAs.

He has the same brand Toes did. I noticed the Oliver puppet at one point. ;)

He is such a bright and alert 9 month old! He is going to do so well.

I know I've said it before, but I am really going to enjoy watching Christian grow. He's got that special spark.

There are big things in store for this one. ;)
