First Concert!

We took Christian to go see his favorite (ok, my favorite) children's singer, Laurie Berkner today at GW. It was an 11am show, perfect timing for naps and lunch, and we had such a good time as a family today!

It was almost surreal to see my little guy actually enjoy the concert. Much of my grief associated with Christian's hearing loss was associated with him not being able to listen and dance to music. Thanks to the miracle of his Cochlear Implant, my little toddler CAN and DOES enjoy music. He dances and jumps and sings. I have to admit, a few tears of joy were shed at the concert, as I thought back to the days of uncertainty when we thought he would never enjoy music.

I just found your blog...you and Christian are a true inspiration. I'm glad you were both able to enjoy the concert! I'm sure Christmas carols will really bring you to tears this year. Take care!
