"A Capella"

is Danny's newest word. I'm not sure where he heard it but he was very frustrated for a full day because the sitter didn't realize what he was saying. Of course he was pronouncing it "a cambella". And at first he thought it was the name of a song so he kept saying, "I want to sing A Cambella."

The sitter thought he was just making up words but the tempo of the word was to familiar. When I asked if he meant "a capella" he just about spun himself into the ground in excitement. Finally, someone understood him!

Now all we do is sing a capella, which he'll tell you is songs without music. His current a capella favorite is Skidamarink, only he gives it a little Danny twist.

I love you in the morning
and in the afternoon.
I love you in the evening
And under the balloon.

Oh, skidamarinky dinky dink
skidamarinky doo
I love you.
'Deed I do. Yes, I do.

Is he not just the cutest little guy? Sometimes I just want to squish him because I can't stand the cuteness another minute!

In other news...

I attempted to get Danny's baseline hearing test done today. I don't know if I've mentioned this before, but there is almost 100% certainty that he will suffer mild to profound hearing loss at some point due to his Norrie's Disease. At any rate, I took him in to get his hearing tested but he was far too enamoured with listening to the new sounds through the little ear buds in his ears to bother with putting the lego blocks into the fireman hat. No results there. We were able to get results from one test that esentially measures the amount of sound which escapes from his ear after he hears it. That test he passed with flying colors. Which means he could only have the mildest of hearing loss if any at all.

So... Yeah!

That's a gorgeous photo of Danny. And to understand a capella there is an incredible brain ticking away in your little guy's head.
Great news on the hearing test.
