Zoo Days

We had such a great weekend! Dooder (Grandma) was here and it was beatuliful wheather! We went to the zoo and had a great time! Sawyer seems to be trying to talk more than ever. he is repeating words like crazy, which is totally a new thing within the past month. Tuesday we have an occupational therapist coming in to do some sensory evaluation and will be interesting to see what she finds. We will keep everyone posted. Meanwhile, here are some pictures and there will be another video coming within the next few days. We love you all:)

Talkin, Talkin, Talkin

Sawyer is soo close to talking. We have seen so much improvement over the past week. He started speech therapy and has had two sessions, and it's amazing to see how his little mind is developing. For those of you who don't know Sawyer was evaluated by Multnomah ESD and he is severely delayed in communication and social skills. He just seems to be blooming now. I almost cried last Sunday at church when I walked in and he didn't want to leave becuse he was playing with other kids. Social interaction is key to his development... and it's not something he gets a lot of. It's so fun to delight in the simple things like Sawyer making a new sound or not pummeling another kid at the play area in the mall:):) Praise God, He is so good!
