We went to play group in the morning. Hughan loves to carry his suitcase in. Holding onto my hand with one finger and trying his hardest to carry his case with the other.

I hope I am doing the right thing by taking him along to the group. I am finding it quite trying, but very rewarding.

Today he decided climbing was his new interest. He was climbing up and down a ladder.

He was vocalising very well today.

My friend has a dog that is always barking and Hughan always reacts to her bark.

(I started this website to help other patents with deaf children through our experience. Our son Hughan was born in 1988 and was diagnosed profoundly deaf at 14 months old. We kept a Diary, so his progress could be tracked between our lessons, as we were living in Gaborone in Botswana and traveled every 3 months to the Carel du Toit Centre in Cape Town.)
