We were in Cincinnati last weekend and decided to take Ethan to the zoo. It was a beautiful day, just a bit chilly outside with a gorgeous blue sky. What a great time to go, hardly any people in the way!
Ethan LOVED it! The first thing he saw (and HEARD!) were the Gibbons monkeys and they were really putting on a show. We could hear them in the parking lot, they're very loud. Ethan pointed and laughed and never took his eyes off them. The first picture is his face after looking at the monkeys and the next picture is Ethan watching the gorilla's.
He is doing really well, vocalizing constantly (even without the implant on) and we are hearing different types of sounds coming from him, mostly variations in pitch and tone rather than consonent vowel combinations. His "hearing age" is only 1 month, so that's about right on target I guess.
Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
