Lotte using the telephone...

Well, by using the speaker. With her CI's on the back, understanding via the horn might be a stretch.
But she loves to use it, and at times will ask to talk to "oma" (grandma).

Yesterday we had grandma on the line and so that all three kids can get involved, the speaker was used. The effect of this being that Lotte will start babbling continously. She just wants to get her story across to her grandmother.

Problem is, when one doesn't know what has happened with Lotte the last days, understanding her is very difficult. So, normally we will tell in advance what happened. But Lotte is happy with some "yes'" and "no's" and will keep on explaining.... and explaining.... and singing...

Yesterday we actually relieved one of the grandmothers by stopping the conversations, and ringing the other one. Fortunately, she had time as well to speak - make that listen - to Lotte.
Lotte sang her songs, and listened to the songs from her oma.
It was great to watch this special time with her grandmother....
