Numbers, letters, colors or shapes yet?

Lauren can count to ten but she usually messes up the first part and used to say A,B,C,D and E but hasn't done it in a while. She knows blue, red, green and yellow but she can't say yellow right so she tries to guess that its another color she can say. No shapes yet though. I'm don't really work with her that much she just has a huge interest in it from watching shows like Blues Clues. She does organize her blocks into patterns of 2 like colored ones next to each other, I was really shocked when she started doing that.

Claire can count to 14, she knows some colors-red, blue and yellow, she can almost spell her name (gets the a and the i mixed up), and she knows all of her shapes. We're still working on A,B,C's. She will sing the song, but not really in the right order, she gets to E then will say R, T, B, etc. She's just a really quick learner though. I'll show her something one time and then tell her to draw it or point to it and she does and will start saying it as well. I think it helps too b/c I was a preschool teacher so I know lots of exercises and games to get her thinking while it's still fun for her.

Lauren can sign a bit too. My 9 yr old sister is profoundly deaf and I stayed home as a teen to help work with her a lot. She got a cochlear implant when she was 2. I'm a bit rusty on my signing though my sister is mostly verbal now.

as of right now my son isn't totally deaf but with time he will be. each day he losses a little of his hearing. so i have two teachers that come into my home to work with him so he can learn how to verbally talk to us. he's slowly getting the hang of talking. he tries but no one can understand him but me and his sister. the teachers can some what understand him.
i was thinking about getting the cochlear implant but his dr hasn't told me if my son can get it yet. i'm waiting on the dr's to tell me what is going on and why things are going this way. my son wasn't born deaf. he was around 2 months old when i notice a problem. it's been hell ever since.

I know you have to have a certain degree of hearing loss to get the cochlear implant. I hope everything works out to where he is able to get one, when my sister speaks you would have no idea that she is deaf. She has been in school full time since the age of 3, she is a bit behind in comprehension but she is in mostly mainstream classes at school now.

Gav is only 18 mos so we haven't got that far yet. But when we are playing I will say see the red car or the green apple to introduce him to them.

Nathan is 2.5 years old....he has known all of his ABC's and numbers 1-20, plus colors since age 16-18 months. He has known his shapes since last summer. (this was all on his own, we did not push him at all, he just kept asking what EVERYTHING was)

Brady, on the other hand, is 16 months old now and really has zero interest....I will tell him things all day but he doesn't quite have the "zest" for learning that Nathan did.

Sydney knows shapes and some colors. She can count a little bit, like if I say 1 she'll say 2 up to about 6. Sometimes she knows colors but other times she won't say them right.

Sean doesn't talk yet, so I have no idea what her knows! He likes when I sing the ABC's to him, and I count with him all the time. We've lost most of the shapes that go into his shape sorter, but he's pretty good about getting the triangle in it's hole. He doesn't seem to have a grasp for colors yet.
