You guys, after the craziness of today's recall, I had to share this HUGE milestone for #minispraypal 2.0! When Dave and Ryan picked Dani and me up at the airport yesterday after BabyFest, I was shocked to hear all the babble coming from the back seat! I swear Dave must have been working on him all weekend to say Dada because he was nailing the D sound like never before. It sounded like a legit baby babble conversation!! Up until then, he was doing lots of grunting and had really mastered the M sound (of course, because his first big syllable was MA!) ;)
Ryan's had his right implant activated in December of 2014 and his left ear activated almost exactly one year ago in April of 2015. He immediately became noisier with his babbling after they were activated, but he's never done anything like this before. Which is super exciting because we just don't know where he'll go with his oral language development, but this is definitely a big step in the right direction! We'll continue to immerse him in language and ASL and see where he will go with it all.
So here you have it, his latest sounds!! I think it sounds a lot like the sound we make when we tickle him. ;) What do you think?!
