More Babbling


We've noticed an uptick in Nolan's babbling since he had his tubes placed. This is rather reassuring, since we had noticed his response to sound wasn't where it should be with his level of loss. Since the tubes were placed, he's turning to his name again and is making a bit more noise. So far, we have heard the following consonants out of the boy:

Dadadada
Nananana
Babababa
Mamama

I'm still working on getting him to sign "more." He claps his hands, so he should be able to pick up that sign fairly quickly. Some other kids learned to sign "more" at the age of seven months, so it is possible!

Matthew is adding new words daily. Some are clear and some still sound like he's speaking Klingon. Airplane is "thleeee," for example. On the other hand, he ran to the window and said, "I see deer" yesterday. Go figure!

That's great he is babbling so well. I saw him clapping in one of the videos and thought that was great. Luca just starting clapping the last few days and he's 10 months.
