Speech-wise, we are definitely making progress! Vocabulary is really growing. Still mostly one-word sentences, but two-word phrases are becoming more frequent (maybe 25% of the time). He is more vocal, in general, throughout the day. His words are still REALLY hard to understand, preferring single syllables and vowels over more complex sounds.
However, and I have been meaning to blog about this, we have a wonderful SLP who's been coming out to the house once a week since school started. Isaiah absolutely loves him, and I think he's fantastic. Mr D. knows how to coax sounds/words out of Isaiah, being firm enough to get the job done, but also being super-fun and following his lead.
On other issues (which I last listed here), it's about the same. The toothbrush example in that post? Still does it almost every single time he goes into the bathroom. :-/
I'm nervous/excited about tomorrow's appointment. I've been debating making it since he was around 18mo. And then when I made the decision last July, of course there was a waiting list. I'm so curious just to see what they say and their opinions. Wish us luck that it goes well!
