speech therapy starts today

Sweets is 18 months and is delayed for expressive and receptive language and also gross motor. In the past few weeks she is starting to do a lot of new things though. She is starting to walk and now walks almost half the time and crawls half the time. She is also starting to say some new sounds and even a few words! She has doubled the different sounds she makes just recently, adding several consonants and a new vowel as well - was just MA and BA until very recently. She can now say something that sounds like "Hi" and "Bye Bye" and "Uh Oh" in context. Funny, because Munchkin's first word was "Uh Oh" too! We also sign with her and she has several new signs lately too. She's just having a growth explosion! It's very exciting!

So, she has been getting therapy through early intervention for 4 months now. She has been getting physical therapy and developmental therapy each once per week. We wanted speech therapy, but they said at the time that she was too young. We pushed again, and now we are getting speech therapy! She starts today! Woo hoo!
