Speech Therapy

Kristin came over today for a session of speech therapy. We played with a doll and some teddy's and i pretended to feed them a drink and some food. We played with puzzles as well... one of animals and the other one had an aeroplane. We blew bubbles, i didn't want Kristin to blow them, i wanted to do it myself... it went really well, i blow really good bubbles but need a little guidance with the stick. Mom get's me to blow bubbles in the bath through a straw as well, sometimes i drink the bathwater by mistake.. yeagh!!! She's really pleased with how my speech is coming along, she said it's developing nicely and she can see a massive difference from when she first started these sessions 6 weeks ago. I've got so much to say for myself so when my speech does develop i'm not gonna be able to shut up! :-)

Highgate Woods

Mom and i stayed the night with mel last night. She made a delicious chicken stirfry for us. I loved playing with Leila, she's only 4 months old though but i said 'hallo leila' to her in my baby voice. Today we went to Highgate Woods for a play. I met an 18 month old called Adrian. We had a right giggle together, we both went on the swings at the same time. Adrian's mom pushed him higher than mom pushed me. Mom's a bit of a scaredy cat when it comes to things like that. I hugged lots of strangers today, i ooze love. We went to the coffee shop afterwards and mom got me a kiddies breakfast, i had egg, mushrooms and beans. yum!

I love Wednesday's :-)

Every Wednesday dad comes over and has dinner with me and mom. I love it, we all sit at the table and eat together. I have to sit on a couple of cushions though cos i'm still a bit small and can't reach the table top. We had pizza tonight, mom didn't feel like cooking. I like pizza, i eat mine really fast so i get to eat some of mom and dad's too.

Milan with dad

I went to Milan for the weekend with dad, to see nonno, nonna and elisa. I had so much fun.. it was a very busy time! They can't believe how much i've changed and how much more i'm doing now. I played with cicilia and tobia, we had a brilliant time jumping all over their sofa and throwing balls around. I missed mom a bit but it was nice to spend lots of time with dad. Dad doesn't live at home anymore but i get to see him as often as possible. He loves me very much and i love him too.

Snowing in Springtime?

I watched big snowflakes falling from the sky today. They made everything white. Mom took me for a walk in our local park, she tried to get me to touch the snow but i didn't want to. I don't really know what it is, i prefer to look at it rather than touch it.

Speech update

I'm slowly starting to talk :-)

I'm saying:
No (for nose)
Mou (for mouth)
I want out (When i'm done bathing)
I want ball (When i wanna watch footie on the telly ... this is what i say the most!)
I want book (When i want to be read to)
Dasta (Pasta)
Nana (Banana)
Yaya (yoghurt)

Mom and dad are going to start using more Makaton with me. They'll have to choose some signs that i don't speak the words for yet. I have 4 speech therapy sessions coming up soon, can't wait to show Kristin how far I've come!
