Little Guy's Monologues

Little Guy had Ms. Brazier over the other day for his Deaf Ed. visit. We really like her. She's laid back, and doesn't bat a lash at all the kids swinging from the ceilings and scaling the walls. She listens to what I have to say, is willing to find answers to the few questions I do have, and gives great feedback and information on the things I need to know.

This past week, she noticed that Little Guy is babbling a ton. I really should take some video snippets of it because it's just so darn cute. And he has the brightest brown eyes you've ever seen (not that I ever remember to take awake pictures of him). They just sparkle when he gets going on one of his monologues. He goes on and on and on talking about something. (I like to think he's talking with the angels that I just can't see, or maybe he's telling me what Heaven was like before he was born). We have no clue what he's saying, but he uses so many different tones and is really expressive with his body and eyes. It was great hearing Ms. Brazier mention how wonderful he's doing, and that it's just so unusual for a baby as deaf as he is to talk so well. We only hope he'll be like the Beast, and never stop babbling.

He's also starting to gain a little control over his body. He's holding his head up, enjoying tummy time, and has learned to hold his hands together in front of his chest. He almost looks like he's praying when he does it. Who can help but fall in love with something so perfect?


  1. Oh, they grow up too fast! I miss having a tiny baby to snuggle. Hopefully his aids will give him some benefit so that he can hear a portion of the speech banana. You'll have to get a shot of those sparkling eyes soon!

  2. I have said it before and I will say it again...Little Guy is one of the most adorable babies I have ever seen! YAY for baby talk!
