Will was evaluated by a Speech Therapist recently as well. She thought his mouth posture was good and was happy with all the verbalizations he is making. She gave me good advice on how to properly feed him with the spoon and gave me some recomendations for encouraging new sounds and expressions. She also made some recommendations on Infant Sign Language books and CDs and showed me some exercises to do with his mouth and facial muscles...which he already can work quite well since he is very expressive with his little face. Will has the biggest, brightest smile but also the saddest, most pathetic pouting lip you have every seen :) :(
This past weekend we had a family wedding in Fort Wayne so we got to see many of our family and friends that live in Indiana and we celebrated Will's Great Grandma's 90th Birthday with a big party. We love Grandma Brough and hope our lives are half as full as her's has been!
(In this picture Great Grandma Brough is holding Will and Great Grandma's OLDER sister, which is Will's Great, Great Aunt Mary, is in the middle and Papa Brough is on the end.)
