This sweet little guy here counted to 10 this morning! Last week, he counted to 8. He is speech delayed, so it makes it extra special for us! He has a 25% speech deficit, which finally qualified him for free speech therapy through our county! We were denied therapy through our insurance company. Last Friday he met his speech therapist, also named Jack, and will get therapy in our home once a week. Looks like Fridays will be the day!
I'm amazed how much he's improved this past week. He is really, really imitating now! Finally putting 2 words together! I just love to hear his little voice and not the grunting that his speech used to consist of!
He calls himself a big boy and that is definately what he is! So proud of him! Also proud of Macy for trying to help him to talk as well. She may be moody and very high maintenance, but she does try to help her brother out, when she's not beating up on him! LOL She was an early talker, speaking in complete sentences at 18 months of age. In fact, she was always ahead on all her milestones, so it has been hard not to compare Jack to her!
