Let me give you some background on my hearing. I am profoundly deaf in my left ear and severely deaf in my right ear. I do wear a hearing aid in my right ear but I have never shown any signs of hearing anything. I don't ever turn toward loud noises. My intervener rang a cow bell, chimes honked a horn...nothing. But recently my Mom thinks maybe, just maybe something is there. Today she decided to bang a spoon on this measuring cup. Normally I don't sit for long. You really have to keep me interested to get me to sit over 5 mins. The only time I did it was with my physio therapist and I was really interested in this flashing mickey mouse light.

Well.....I loved my mommy banging the spoon. Every time she stopped I would cry because I wanted more. So mommy thought could this just be that I liked watching the spoon hit the cup OR can I actually hear it?? Mommy then banged them off the floor (just incase I just liked vibrations) when I wasn't looking....I turned..EUREKA!!! Could I actually be hearing this?? I hope so.

***Warning*** This video contains me with a really runny nose. As you may know my nose always runs but my mommy can't bang the cup, record the video and wipe the nose all at the same time. Sorry....She wiped it as soon as she stopped recording.

Well my little Princess Evie, I know your Mommy works very hard with you every day to achieve the things most of us take for granted and you just keep throughing out these big surprises. I am very proud of your Daddy and Mommy for their strength and determination and of you my Princess for all your great strides.
I am blessed and lucky to have the three of you in my life. I am sending a big hug and kissed to all three of you, however, you my Princess has to get one sloppy kiss from me. Love again, Aage.
