We had Mommo's Christmas Saturday evening complete with a visit from Santa Claus! It was so great seeing all the kids excited about Santa coming. I got a little emotional when all the kids were around him because it brought on memories of missing it last year. I know, I know, everything is fine.
Sunday was the Siegmund Christmas. Everyone was able to make it- including Rick! It was a nice surprise seeing him. I know Ben and Jessica were really happy he was able to make it.
Jessica, Melanie, Stephanie and Tim singing "We 3 Kings." The version is from a Christmas special they liked growing up "A Claymation Christmas."
I have more pictures but haven't had the time to go through them - I do know I got some good ones, though. Here are a few from the weekend

During the appointment, I sat with Auggie in a sound booth to see if he'd be able to localize noises and voices. In the video you can hear the audiologist talking but in the sound booth, her voice was coming from a speaker on the left and on the right. She would change which speaker her voice would come out of to see if he'd notice. Around 2:15 into the video, she changes to whistling and other sounds. I think he thought I was whistling around 2:20 into it.
The localization will come with time and hopefully having bilateral BAHAs, will help Auggie improve his speech and babbling. Any questions? I know a few people have asked but feel free to leave a comment, call or text us if you're wondering anything!
