The Most Annoying (And Cutest) Sound In The World

child copying his dad video special needs

I typically spend a lot of time blogging and creating videos that are (hopefully) helpful and encouraging to you. This will not be one of those. Sorry. Instead, turn the volume up on your speakers, click play, and thank me later! 🙂

On a serious note, this video was actually very encouraging me. What you’re seeing in today’s video is much more than me just making annoying sounds and Noah cute-ly copying me. On a developmental level imitation is an important developmental milestone, and on a personal level it’s super fun watching Noah copy me.

I love it!

By the way, Noah copying me is cute, but Noah laughing is even cuter!

Does your child try to copy you? What sorts of things do they like to copy? Leave a comment and tell us about it!

  3. Just love your posts! Noah is SOOO cute!! I really do appreciate everything you post about. I’ve gotten a lot of good info/advice from them! My youngest (of 4) has DS. Couldn’t imagine life without her!

    Bryson (4yo) and I always do the same sounds in the mirror. We learnt it at speech therapy but he also thinks its hilarious and his giggle is awesome!
    AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA pointing at the mirror
    EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE thumbs pointing back
    OOOOOOOOOOOOO sign for ball over mouth
    UH kinda like up just uh? lol tough to type! but action is tumbs up.

    Hes still pretty quiet he just started saying his name a few weeks ago when you say “I see” he says “ba-ba-ba-sin sin sin” not sure where he got all the extra sounds from but hey WE’LL TAKE IT!
    He is a sneaky little guy….he will all of a sudden out of the blue say things you *thought* he couldn’t (at this time obviously ;)…)
    Anyways…..YAY for copy cats! 🙂

    What a mover…Thank you for making my day 🙂 There is also no better sound than genuine happiness. My son Crue was born 7 months ago with DS and your postings mean the world to me, it brings such encouragement and inspiration. Crue started blowing raspberries when he was 6 months old and he does this constantly, at 6 o clock in the morning that is all I hear over the baby monitor and it makes me laugh, there is no better alarm clock. He loves music so I’m guessing I have all the crazy dance moves to look forward to.

  8. We are loving reading and growing with you Haddey isn’t that much younger that Noah, Haddey is a great at the mimic game. She cracks my husband and I up they way she will copy a sound, the best is the eye brow cocking that my husband is known for, He older 3 year old sister Payten is a great help and that is going to be good and bad in the future, thanks for the video , Haddey enjoyed joining in.

  9. Rick thanks for sharing Noah’s birth story. I am so happy to see a Father express to the world the love he has for his son from the beginning and all the more when the doctors and nurses were trying to figure out how to tell you and your beautiful wife, that you have been chosen to be in this Wonderfully Exclusive Family that not many get to experience, Thank you for sharing Noah’s development with the world. You are a true Ambassador for our children. Here are my 2 little guys My Cruz was born December 7, 2010 My Luis is 10 going on old man….LOL. My life is complete because of them

  10. Me and My Wife started reading about Noah, after learning that our first baby Jace also have DS. We are truly inspired and wanted to say thank you for sharing your experiences.

    Joey, Kat and Jace
