We had the second part of Christian's activation today, and it went really well. Our audiologist increased the volume on all of his programs. Yesterday, we gradually stepped up to each program every several hours. Now that his volumes are increased, we'll be gradually stepping up to each program over the course of the next week. The actual appointment went fantastic. We're going to officially start working on our "Ling Sounds". The Ling Sounds are "Ahhh", "Oooh", "Mmmm", "Ssss", and "Shhh". These sounds represent the sounds that you need access to to be able to hear speech. Christian actually did respond to our audi's voice, using one of the Ling sounds (You can see that in the second video below). The first video was taken during the volume adjustment.

He's been a bit cranky, and a bit tired these past two days, but all in all he's doing great. We're working on keeping the ear piece on--it seems to fall off when he rubs his head against his carseat or his highchair. I went to the beauty supply store and got some Topstick toupee tape, so we'll see if that works :)
