Ella got her hearing aids today!!! She wore them from her appointment at 3:30 until bedtime without touching them! I am SO proud of her! She was pretty funny and basically yelled every word she said at us for a couple of hours. The hearing aid lady said that Ella's voice will sound different to herself with the aids on so she was just experimenting! Luckily by the end of the night her voice returned to it's normal volume! The lady (I do not know what her title is???) recommended that Ella not wear the aids to school this week and that we wear them at home to get used to them before sending her to school for 6 hours, so I guess that is what we are going to do even though she seems to be just fine with them.
I love the color combo....the purple matches her glasses perfect!
Not a great pic of Ella but wanted to show what it looks like from the front....
I am a mother to two incredible children. Hunter is 8 years old and Ella Grace is 6 years old. My children are my life, my true joy. My life was turned upside down when my daughter was born and surprised us all by having Down syndrome. Since her birth I have come from sorrow and a sense of loss to greater happiness than I ever imagined and I owe it all to The Amazing Ella Grace! Contact me anytime by email email@example.com
My face may be different,but my feelings the same.I laugh and I cryand take pride in my gains.I was sent here among you to teach and to loveas God in the heavenslooks down from above.To Him I'm no different,His love knows no bounds;It's those here among you, in cities and townsthat judge me by standardsthat man has imparted,but this family I've choosenwill help me get started.For I'm one of the children,so special so few,that came here to learnthe same lessons as you.That love is acceptance, it must come from the heart;we all have the same purpose,though not the same start.The Lord gave me lifeto live and embrace,and I'll do it as you do,but at my own pace.-Unknown
