Hearing Loss: We have Hearing Aids!

Hearing Loss: We have Hearing Aids!

After what has seemed like forever, Grayson has his hearing aids! Technically, these aren’t his hearing aids, they’re loaners until his come in, but he has them nonetheless!

Friday afternoon, we had Grayson’s Hearing Aid Dispensing Appointment. Out of all of his appointments thus far, this one was the easiest. It was super quick–we were in and out. Unfortunately, we didn’t get any photos or video during the appointment. The main focus was keeping him from crying (he’s still not a huge fan of strangers messing with his ears). Big thank you to Moana, for keeping his attention throughout, and making it relatively tear-free.

Also, since his loss is so mild, it wasn’t something that he immediately noticed. It definitely wasn’t like those viral videos of babies hearing their parent’s talking for the first time that make you get snot all over your phone.

We were over the moon excited for him. I feel like we’ve been waiting for this moment for years, but it’s only been a few short weeks. Initially, I was worried about him pulling them out, but it hasn’t been an issue! He does touch them some times, and there have been a few times where he didn’t want us to put them in, but he’s doing so much better than my husband and I expected him to. I think he’s realizing that they do help him to hear better, and he’s just going with the flow.

It’s so fun to hear him react to things that he didn’t hear before. He’s heard the air conditioner kicking on and the ice maker making ice. The thing that choked me up the most though, is that now he can hear his name. Most of the letters in his name were below what he could hear, and I don’t know if we will ever know what he’s heard the last *almost* two years when we said his name. But now, he’s actually saying it! It isn’t completely clear yet, but knowing that he can hear it just..gets me right in the feelings.

This week, he will begin weekly speech therapy. I think this is where we’re going to start seeing major improvements in his speech and language development. He’s already an extremely vocal kid, but isn’t able to pronounce everything correctly quite yet.

July will also be a big month for us because he will be attending Toddler Preschool! This preschool is specifically developed to help deaf and hard of hearing toddlers prepare for hearing preschool/school settings.

I can’t wait to update y’all on all of the progress that he’s making. Thank you again to everyone who has reached out with kind words and support for us. We so appreciate it.

  • I’m so excited to share this Better Than Takeout Beef Fried Rice with you guys. (You can totally sub the beef for chicken, pork, or shrimp!) We add a little extra veggies and an extra egg because Grayson like a lot of egg in his “egg rice” 😂 I also included a Homemade Yum Yum Sauce recipe because...do I even need a reason? You can find this recipe by clicking the link in my bio! •

  • This Deep Dish Cast Iron Skillet Cookie is super chocolatey, gooey, and the perfect comfort dessert. This was my first time baking inside my @lodgecastiron, but it won’t be my last! It was definitely a hit. We topped the warm slices with some good old fashioned vanilla ice cream and it was seriously a treat. •
