Four months post-activation. Really? Already? I used to look at other CI Momma's blogs and feel like this moment in time was just a dream.
We've been having a hard time lately keeping the positivity alive. I'm sure many of you agree that receptive coming before expressive language is sometimes tough to accept. You feel as though they aren't "producing" anything, so we're not getting anywhere.
While I constantly tell people AJ's hearing is like a 4 month old newborn (and do 4 month olds, talk? No!), I find myself forgetting that fact. We must hear things thousands of times before they make sense. One step at a time, right?
I mentioned AJ doing the bunny hop activity during his speech session two weeks ago...and am pleased to present this video of him doing it for me at home. This activity shows that AJ understands the auditory cue for the word "Hop". Although, I think I need a plastic bunny. The fluffy one just doesn't do the "hop" sound justice ;)
