Halloween and Dreams

I just had to share how cute Kevin was during Halloween. A few years ago I was hoping he would be able to say 'Trick or Treat' and it was more like 'tri-o-tre'. This year, Kevin literally talked to each neighbor for about 5 minutes and I had to finally say, 'Ok Kevin, say good-bye'. He was having full conversations about costumes or decorations or whatever he decided to talk about. Plus, he didn't need me to translate for him. Everyone understood what he was saying. It was so special! Our friends who went out with us asked if he was always this talkative. I had to reply.... 'Yes, ALWAYS!'!!! Hooray!

Last night, Kevin woke up and came to our room in the middle of the night. He said (without his CIs) 'The helicopter above my head in my room is too loud' and he crawled in our bed. He was dreaming in sound!!! This might not seem out of the ordinary for a hearing child, but I always wondered if he would dream in sound. He let me know 'loud and clear' last night that, yes, he does!!! I just think that is soooo cool!
