Phew! We had a busy daytime schedule this week. Friends over to play three mornings and one afternoon, a dentist appointment and pediatrician appointment, two church meetings, and Henry's first speech session. We've had a lot of fun, but I'm looking forward to less busyness next week.
Henry's first speech session went great. His therapist seems very friendly and professional. They got right to work, learning the "snake sound" and practicing S's. Henry's homework was to read a book in which he calls for a dog named Spot before lifting the flaps in the book to look for Spot. Even in just a couple days, he's already making progress.
All our playdates this week were lovely. Since our days seem to go better if Elizabeth gets a good solid nap in the morning, I've been making a point of inviting friends to come here (although this week's schedule got a little out of hand!) Henry's starting to play with his friends rather than just next to them.
One of the highlights of school this week was "fishing" for magnetic materials in the rice bin.
Henry and I also played Go Fish. Henry's still has a pretty hazy idea of what winning is all about, but we both enjoyed it.
Henry drew about magnets in his journal and I transcribed his words.
And lastly--drumroll, please!--the results of Elizabeth's two-month-and-a-little-more check-up: 24.75" (greater than 95th percentile) and 11 lbs, 15 oz (75th percentile). She's beginning to hold up her head more easily, and is looking adorable in her hand-knit sweaters.
