He's learning

Asher is working hard to learn breath control, particularly how to make the air come out his mouth and not his nose! For years his tonsils were so huge he couldn't make air come out his mouth at all. That means he didn't have a voice either. :-( But those tonsils have been gone for almost a year and it's been a long road learning how to put all these things together. Whistles and horns are a great way to learn this skill! I'd forgotten I purchased all the talk tools horns over the summer. At the time they were too difficult for him but look, he can finally do it!

Ok, we might have to work on technique a bit.

Geez, Mom, why can't I put it in my nose??

I think Owen and Asher are cut from the same cloth.....all day long I get the Dad sign too. Maybe one day my own kid will like me?? :)

I love how he laughs at himself too after he blows into the horn!
