Just some updates

We're heading up to Hopkins tomorrow for what will be our last audiogram in the CI candidacy process. We learned last week that Christian is indeed a candidate, but they wanted us to do another audiogram. This trip tomorrow morning hopefully will be our last for awhile.

Chuck and I decided that we needed to add more to our plate, so we're working on learning some basic CUED SPEECH. Christian is doing PHENOMENAL with his signs and has started cueing basic sounds (like MOO, Uh-oh), so we're definitely going to pursue this as an option. We see it as just one more tool in our toolbox. His preschool that he will end up at uses Cueing in certain situations everyday, so I definitely want him to be exposed to it.

Marielle's Mom has some great information posted on her blog about obtaining visual smoke alarms for D/HOH folks. We called our local firehouse a week or so agoand were able to immediately pick them up without any hassle.

Christina,
I have been ABSENT!!! I missed the love letter post and the Beautiful post and finally just got here. So, I see you've been busy *smile*. Beautiful things are happening quickly, keep writing and having faith. It's amazing how faith really helps throughout the journey and how there are ALWAYS signs along the way. Hugs and more hugs, Jodi
