“I aint gonna lie..seeing that my son actually hears me when I talk is better than anything else I have experienced. He turns right away to me and smiles all big :)” – Dad (Joseph)
If that doesn’t melt your heart, then what’s wrong with you?!?! Haha just kidding. But really though, I love the bond Joseph and Braxton have with one another. There is truly nothing sweeter than seeing a father and son have a love like they do. Joseph is gone every other week, and when Brax was first born he would tell me that he was worried Braxton would forget him or not know who he was. Let me tell you, this little boy KNOWS who his daddy is!! The second Joseph walks in the door Braxton’s face lights up. When he’s right in front of daddy he’s constantly reaching out to his face trying to kiss him or eat his face! haha
Braxton got his hearing aids on Monday afternoon while Joseph was at work. Joseph came home Tuesday night and so Wednesday was Joseph’s first full day with Braxton. 🙂 When he’s home from work he keeps Braxton at home instead of sending him to daycare. [What a great dad!] Joseph said he really noticed a difference in Braxton and his hearing. He was much more aware of his surroundings and would actually turn in the direction of where sounds were coming from. Before, we’d make a sound on his left side and he might hear it but he wouldn’t turn left, he’d just look around trying to figure out what it was and where it came from. Now he turns directly toward the sound. Yayyy!! Progress! While I’m at work, I see this status update from Joseph: “I aint gonna lie..seeing that my son actually hears me when I talk is better than anything else I have experienced. He turns right away to me and smiles all big :)” and it made my heart smile. He got to fall in love with his son all over again. It’s a whole new world for Braxton, and there is so much for him to experience. I’m glad he can finally hear the man he absolutely adores.
