Yesterday was a big, huge, giant day for a certain little girl in the Johnson house.
Ashlyn's "new ear" was turned on.
We'd been watching lots of cochlear implant activation videos on YouTube in anticipation.
Don't be jealous of our exciting Friday nights.
Many of the more popular ones are pretty amazing.

I knew in my heart Ashlyn's experience would be different.
I didn't imagine her being shocked or surprised.
Or overwhelmed and crying.
And she wasn't.
Because she's always had some hearing.
Just not enough.
And, although it was a big day.
It was also a simple day.
A proud little girl who can identify the numbers 4 and 2.
Who's adjusting very well to hearing sounds in a new way.
A good God who has a great plan.
And two very thankful parents.
