Today I have not only a developmental therapist coming over to work with Damien but also the Speech therapist who deals best with tongue thrust. We've actually dealt with her before. I am hoping she is able to help more with getting his tongue to cooperate so he can speak better. I just want him to talk so bad! Say anything!! Man it'd be awesome if he'd hop out of bed one Saturday morning and said "momma, I'm hungry." or "momma get up!" Don't get me wrong he talks to me all the time saying "uh uh! or Yes!" when I ask him a question. But for him to say something without me asking a question like "do you want a drink?" would just be pretty darn cool. We're coming up on 27 months and still at a 9-12 month level on language development. I bought First Signs by Baby Einstein and he still finds signing too funny. He hasn't tried to do it yet and I doubt he will. I'll try to get on later and post what happened on seek and destroy so look there. They are supposed to be showing us exercises to work his jaw muscles and lips. I think one had to deal with blowing water on paper and peanut butter on a cup. I have learned so much the past 3 years having two little ones with developmental issues. I hope someone can benefit from my blogs on our journey. I know when I became a parent I never expected to venture the road of ST, OT,IEP's, and Early Intervention.
