Isaac's World

Baby Steps

Isaac is really adjusting to sound. He turns most of the time when we call his name now. It is really awesome. Another cool thing that he does, is that he talks to us. Whenever he wants something, he knows to vocalize. I have stopped putting my hand to my throat when I want him to vocalize and I just ask him to "tell me" what he wants, and he makes sounds. He also is starting to imitate us. When we talk he tries to use the same syllables as we use when we talk to him. When the dogs bark, he looks out the window or door. When I came home from the store the other day, I asked Isaac where the dogs were (without signing) and he made the sign for dog and then the sign for where as he smiled. It is such an amazing thing to see him connecting sound to events.

Awesome! Looks like he's taking "BIG" baby steps. He'll take off "running" before too long to make up for lost time! Glad to hear he is doing so well!
