Brody was baptized this morning at Middletown United Methodist Church. He was blessed by our wonderful Reverend, Tom. Our church's sanctuary has a couple of large chandeliers around the room as well as a large skylight. Of course Brody, a lover of all lights, only wanted to rear back and stare at the lights. He could have cared less about what was going on! Pastor Tom turned it into a wonderful speech that as Brody loved the lights above, he would look to the Church to be his light through his walk with Christ. Brody made a few vocalizations that Pastor Tom took as Amens! The church gave Brody a baptismal candle and a certificate of the day.
I have slacked in posting, but Brody hasn't done too many exciting things lately.He got some new earmolds made for his hearing aids (the part that actually goes into the ear). He out grows them so fast. He has started slowing down on his growing though.
Brody also got to attend PipSqueaks at Heuser Hearing & Language Academy on Friday. PipSqueaks is a group of moms that get together once a month with his therapist, Ms. Paula. They are mothers of deaf and hard of hearing children who are between the ages of birth-two. When they turn three, they age out of First Steps, the early intervention program in Kentucky, and start preschool. It is nice to see who may be in Brody's class one day and already start forming friendships. It is also a wonderful resource to talk to parents who have children going through all steps of the Cochlear Implant and Hearing Aid life. I know the school aspect of everything, but raising a child at home and in day to day community life is a whole different story!
