New Sounds

As we sat in a restaurant on Sunday afternoon, eating our lunch, Drew leaned over to his Daddy and said, "What's that sound?" After pausing for a moment, we realized that Drew was hearing the sound coming from the hand-held soda machine a bartender was using.

We weren't really shocked that Drew heard the sound, as we were sitting fairly close to the bar. But we were surprised that he isolated the sound in a crowded restaurant, and recognized that he didn't know the sound, and was so intrigued by it that he just had to learn what the sound was.

Nearly four years later, and I'm still seeing my little guy hear new sounds for the first time. Pretty cool.

hi-my name is Kate BLue and I was wondering if you guys are on facebook..after 4 years, we are JUST having to fight BCBS regarding AVT for my son Brandon (CI user and kid with apraxia) and I just don't even know how to begin...we had a different insur co.for the first 2.5 years and now that he is approaching age 7, BDBSis trying to deny services. I had read an earlier posting of Drew's Dad and thought perhaps I could pick your brains for information!


THanks! Kate BLue (Katherine Boddy BLue on facebook) or, my blog: www.kateblue.blogspot.com

and ps-yes, it's so strange the noises they pickup that are wayyy in the back or soemwhere else...brandon does that when people are cutting grass or trimming hedges outside!
