They also had sensory eggs. These were eggs that beeped really loud, not loud enough for Brody, but very loud for everyone else! They had them in a separate part of the playground called the sensory garden.
We then went with Papa Brown, Grandma, and Aunt Sara to the Easter Parade on Frankfort Ave. We didn't park in the best place for the parade and ended up missing a lot of it. Oh well, Brody had fun anyway! Grandma and Aunt Sara swear he made a reaction when the fire truck turned on its siren. On Thursday, Dr. Angie, his audiologist, did another hearing test in the hearing booth. He had some turns to the sound at about 70 and 80 decibels. I don't always give him credit for really hearing something verses turning by coincidence, but I will give him credit for those! Looking at the chart below, you can see that he should be able to hear Bear barking now and music. Dr. Angie gave him credit for some 50 and 60 decibels, but I am a little harder on him :). The fire truck siren is about 100-120 decibels.
Some pictures of the parade floats:
Brody met the Easter Bunny there too! Funny how most Santa Clauses look so much alike, but the Easter Bunny comes in all forms!
After the parade, we met Papa Tom and Grammy at the University of Louisville vs. Notre Dame baseball game. Brody had fun relaxing time. We sat by the Notre Dame players' parents. The moms all thought Brody was the cutest...maybe they will help pay for him to go one day!
We went to church this morning after Brody opened his Easter Basket. He likes his new sippy cup the best! Then, we headed to Grandma and Papa Brown's house for Easter lunch.
I have the week off for spring break! Woohoo! Teachers love spring break almost as much as the students do! (Okay...we love it more!) Brody and I are going to have a relaxing week...and work on crawling bootcamp!
Pretty cool link about a woman who has received the eye implants. She has the same eye diagnosis that Brody has.
