Yesterday and today

Yesterday... was a beautiful day.  The boys asked if we could go to the playground.  Of course I said yes!  A friend joined us too.

Today... We finally had a speech therapist come for Emily.  We had previously been working with a developmental specialist.  She was great, but we really had no need anymore for any therapy other than speech and she didn't have the training for that.  We've been waiting for several weeks to get a speech therapist.  Apparently there is a great need in our area.  Anyway, she came today.  She said Emily is about a year behind.  She "should" have 200 words and be putting 2 words together by now.  She only has about 10 words.  Today was just for evaluation, but now she'll be coming every week.  It will be interesting to see how things go.  Our "assignment" for this week is to have Emily use a straw when drinking and to require her to make some kind of vocalization when she wants something.
