Another posting of Josephine and food – two of my most favorites! Can’t live without either one!
This brownie-making moment was during a speech therapy session – learning how to follow instructions, learning about different foods, learning about different textures (not a huge favorite considering her sensory disorder), and the best part of it all, EATING THE BROWNIES!!!!
Speech therapy has made a huge leap! Josephine said “B” multiple times during therapy on Monday. She had to be prompted, but the sound was there. We even heard a slight “mmm” sound. This is after about 2 weeks of pushing to produce bi-labial sounds.
Carrie, the speech therapist, considers Josephine to be at an 8-10 month level (Josephine is now 17 months old). She is very happy with Josephine’s inflection and chatty qualities. Gee, guess who she got the chattiness from????
I need to take a moment to give total accolades to our therapy team from Sunny Days Early Intervention Services (www.sunnydays.com). Not only are they wonderful with Josephine, they are patient, kind, respectful, knowledgeable, caring and full of spunk!
Lauren Levine, Developmental Intervention
Lana Furman, Physical Therapist
Kim Pannucci, Occupational Therapist
Carrie Leshin, Speech Pathologist
It is because of all of these women that our beautiful miracle is excelling in all aspects of life!
