Volume Control


I was cleaning the kitchen and came downstairs to a sleeping baby. I was surprised he was able to sleep amidst all the Matthew-created noise, but then saw that Nolan has figured out his own version of volume control. Being able to tune out can be a benefit sometimes!

That's hilarious! I saw a picture on someone's blog (can't remember where) of the child sleeping and he had pulled off his coil from his CI. Too cute!

Precious!

Just wait until he's older... sometimes Tate will very dramatically turn his HA off when he is mad and doesn't want to listen. Aaarrgh!

my husband uses his ability to "turn off the noise" to his full advantage! He sleeps with his deaf ear up, and claims he can't hear the baby cry at night!!

Well, I've tested this theroy, because I was pretty sure he was trying to get away with sleeping through the night when I never get to :)

Sure enough, he really can not hear with that bad ear up.

Oh well. Now the baby does it too..."Oh, Mommy, I didnt hear you say I wasn't allowed to throw the dirt because I was facing the wrong way" (or rather, through facial expressions he says that...though the time will soon come when he says it for real, I hope!)

I'm surrounded!! :)

Emmi watches TV with the coils off sometimes. She also has been known to flick them off if I am telling her not to do something. Then, if you try to sign to her, she turns her back on us or squeezes her eyes shut!

You should send that photo in! Try Hands and Voice. What a good mama you are for taking that photograph and sharing it with us. It's nice to see other moms that have to worry about hearing aids and take them off when they're sleeping and put them back on again after nap time.
