SMOOCH! "I heard that!"
Dad & Joseph: "Amanda!"
Since Amanda's last mapping a month ago she has been hearing more and more each day! In fact she just posted a new blog entry with photos of some of the new things she is hearing.
It's pretty amazing since she has only been activated since August (4 months ago) and had NEVER EVER heard anything before.
One of Amanda's goals for herself was to be able to have people call her name and have her be able to answer and say, "What?"
After she posted her blog entry tonight, she was surprised to hear herself kissing her chihuahua, Goldy.
Last week Amanda and I were playing cards and Amanda could hear the difference between 8 and ace! They looked the same on the lips but she could hear the "t" at the end of eight and the "s" at the end of ace.
Check out her blog entry: Deaf Girl Amanda
And below, if you didn't have a chance to view them, are two videos of us doing two elf dances; a Disco Elf dance and a Country Elf dance. Amanda can more easily follow the music and dance moves since her cochlear implant.
The videos will be available until mid January. Let me know what you think of our fabulous moves!
