Jamie had a follow up visit to the speech pathologist this morning, for a re-assessment. And the verdict? Pretty much age appropriate. Isn't that wonderful news?
We have only to work on the "s" sound now. (It tends to sound a little bit like "sh".)
And we don't have to go back until next year, when we will have another assessment to check that his new sounds are coming on line as they should be as he develops.
I am so proud of my boy, for all the hard work he has put in. He is such a clever chicken!
And, while I'm talking about age appropriate....
Yesterday we had a friend over for lunch. She bought some muffins with her. Mmmm muffins! Big muffins. The sort that you have to cut in half, and save the other half for later. Or share it. Which is what we had planned. Only Jamie had other ideas. When I cut ours in half and offered him half, he complained. He wanted the whole thing. I explained that we were all having half - because the muffins were so big. We were SHARING. But, no. He did not want to share. His solution? "Jamie will have muffin for snack, and mummy can have sultanas and apricots".
Is that kid clever or what? Sultanas and apricots is our usual afternoon snack ;)
