Another note from Mommy!


Hello all!

Another note from mommy! Ethan has just had so much going on he is just too exhausted to write!

Well, since we last posted, my birthday had come and gone and Ethan's signing continues to improve. We add more words all the time. In this picture he is signing 'green.' He's such a poser! Anyways, yesterday the Ravenna School Psychologist went to Ethan's school to observe him in a school setting and observe his speech session with that schools speech pathologist. He has been greatly improving the last few weeks, but they still feel there is too much of a delay in speech for him to continue without services, so we are now preparing for pre-school! The last full week in March is spring break, then starting the Monday after, our little man is off to Brown Elementary for his very 1st crack at pre-school. I will be driving him because I just don't think I'm ready for the bus. I think Ethan is...it's just a mommy thing!

Anyways, Ethan's speech has also been improving of sorts. He was always able to say 'dada' and 'daddy', but now he actually calls for daddy. For mommy he says, 'baba'. He can say 'm' and 'a', but putting them together is his biggest issue. He says, "bye bye" really well and we are still working on 'open' and 'up.' We are trying to be really hopeful, and like I said, his signing is greatly improving! He can sign bigger words like 'restaurant' and combo words like ' help'. It shows his hand/eye co-ordination is greatly improving.

Well, not much more to report at the moment. He's been a little monkey with his climbing antics, but a great boy all around.
Love,
Ethan's Mommy
