Isaac's World

Isaac is making progress with his CI. We are so proud of him. It is much of the same thing, but the consistency is what we are so happy with. We are sure he knows his name which to some people may not be a huge thing, but we know it is a miracle. God answeres His way and in His time. Isaac is very vocal now. He is signing up a storm, but knows that he can make sound now and that he can use it to get our attention and what he wants. We are working on having him make some other sounds other than the "muuummmm mummmmmm" sounds, and I think it is slowly coming. We tried to have him make a "la la la" sound because it is easy to see the tongue moving but he doesn't seem to grasp it yet. He sticks his tongue out like a lizard and then makes the "muummmm muuummmm" sounds. We will continue to work with him. We started making the sound "oh" with him and he kind of does it. It sounds more like an "ah" sound but he knows to keep his mouth open. It is really cute to see. When he wants something we make him sign what it is he wants and to try to make the vocalizations, however he does get impatient and mad if he can't do it and he really wants something! He is such a character. He just brings us more and more joy each day.
