2. I need to check Aiden's CIs everyday with the listening headphones. In my attempts with Cochlear to figure out why he would be pulling off his CIs, I found they sounded a little muffled (probably from moisture) and one of his backup processors wasn't getting any sound what-so-ever!
3. CIs really need to go in the dry&store every.single.night, especially in the summer months (the dry & store is an electronic dryer that dehumidifies CIs/hearing aids). I missed one night .... and see number 2 above.
4. CI mic covers should be changed at least once a month in the summer ... every few months during dryer parts of the year.
5. Note to self ... I cannot stay up hanging with friends until 4am anymore and expect to function the next day with a one year old. Nope. Doesn't work.
6. Aiden says "yum, yum" ... or more like "umm, umm" when he's eating. Love it.
7. Don't react when Aiden pulls off and dissects his CIs every.other.minute. He likes reaction. He laughs at it. Instead, put them back on or just take them off for a 10 minute break then try, try, try again.
8. Lucky Charms marshmallows are a great bribery tool for getting responses to the Lings and to point out pictures on these Meal Mats found at The Listening Room.
9. Aiden looks darn cute in a baseball hat. I'm his mom ... I can say these things ;)
10. Aiden is signing no. Next comes saying "no". While I am so thankful my baby is babbling/talking, I'm not looking forward to the "no-no mommy" stage, (okay, secretly I truly am because anything he says is music to my ears ... I say that now anyway!)
11. Aiden would rather play with a laundry basket (especially when the cat's in it) than his toys anyday.
12. One cat is very patient with this boy, the other just runs.
13. Aiden is FINALLY getting more teeth ... two more on the bottom which will now give him a total of 8 teeth at 16 months.
14. My little monkey climbs on everything - his latest, the toilet. But he's not trying to climb onto the toilet, he's trying to climb into the toilet ... the one item in the house I haven't put a safety lock on ... yet.
