Hi everyone! I wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and give a family update. For those that don’t know yet we are expecting another girl in March. We are extremely excited and can’t wait for her to arrive. We think that Fiona is excited too but I imagine it will take some time for her to adjust. In regards to the baby’s hearing (since this is a blog about hearing loss after all) we don’t have reason to believe that our 2nd child will be deaf. We did genetic testing when Fiona was a baby and they said her cause of hearing was not genetic. But you really never know – we will see how that newborn hearing screening goes at the hospital!! 🙂
There was a video of Fiona on my Facebook feed this morning showing her talking a year ago. She was repeating family names back to me. I thought it was interesting to see the change and so I recorded an updated version today. Here’s the two videos to compare:

Also, here is a video of Fiona singing Jingle Bells:
Here she is practicing using “is” in sentences:
We hope that everyone has a Merry Christmas and a great start to 2017!! Crazy. 2017.
