“She hasn’t been signing lately but always ‘listens’ intently to people signing to her,” McMahon told Scary Mommy. “She is fifth generation deaf in our family. Almost every member of our family is deaf.”
That includes Aria’s grandma, Pamela, and when the two spent time together to get to know one another, it was kind of amazing.
Even though Aria clearly doesn’t yet understand what Pamela is trying to say, she is totally entranced with her grandmother.
“Aria and I have moved out of state so they haven’t seen each other since the video,” McMahon said. “They have a special bond and my mom misses her so much.”
Hopefully they reunite soon — and videotape that encounter.
