Last Speech Visit

Reid finished out his speech services for this summer today. It is hard to believe that we have attended all of our sessions and we are kissing the summer time days goodbye. Reid really enjoyed his speech sessions with Miss Judy. She did a really nice job with him and worked on his oral motor skills in depth. His drooling is MUCH better, and his "S" sound is coming along nicely. We will continue to work on oral motot exercises at home as I head back to school, but for now....we are calling it goodbye. I am pleased with Reid's overall progress this summer. He worked hard.

Working with Miss Judy and the NUK brush. She was rubbing lemon ice on his lips and then working exercises with him. Reid loves anything that incorporates food into his day!

Mmmmmmm.....lemon ice!

Reid being a little bit rowdy. I think he was feeling comfortable with Miss Judy....maybe a little too comfy!

Ellie went with us today because I didn't have a sitter...and she enjoyed getting to paint her brother!

More painting!

Thanks Miss Judy for all your help this summer! We will miss you!

Wow, I can't imagine Aidan letting anyone NEAR his mouth!! We have one more speech visit next week. It's been tough, since I feel like Aidan just started warming up to her... but she was just for the summer. He said, "in, out" today. Woohoo!!

So glad Reid's "S's" are coming along. We're starting to work on that one. Yay Reid! You're doing great, buddy!

Hello, and welcome to my page! I am so glad you are here. I am going to try and show you the average life of a 5 year old from my perspective. Mommy and Daddy will help me along the way if I get stuck.

Let me first introduce my family to you. I am Ellie. I am a 6 year old. I live in Ohio with my Mommy, Daddy, little brother Reid, and dog, Sophie. My mommy is a teacher. She teaches nine and ten year olds and loves it. She has been teaching for twelve years. My daddy works with computers. He works hard everyday.

We all love spending time together. I have wonderful grandparents and a terrific extended family. I am a very lucky girl. Thank you for visiting my page. Write to me any time. I love getting mail!!!

Many blessing to you all.
