Liam had his speech assessment this morning . He did really well, and the lady he is seeing is just lovely. Had him at ease straight away. He just thought the whole thing was a game. He loved all the attention, which is great. He does need a bit of work, but she thinks he is very close to putting it all together, so shouldn’t be too long at all. Just as well, when you see the prices they charge! His main areas that need attention are k, j & f, and also sm & sn sounds. But usually only when the word begins with that letter. For example he has trouble with words like kite, but can say book perfectly. When the difficult sound is at the end of the word he can say it well. It’s going to be a month until we see her again though, as school holidays and easter get in the way. I’m looking forward to working on this though, and hopefully we’ll see some improvements soon. It’s amazing to watch her teach him, for example with each letter she had a hand action which is really hard to describe, but showed him visually how to make the sound. He got is straight off when she used the actions.
Anyway, my amazing big boy helped clean up today, and even vacuumed his own room. I was so proud of him, he looked so sweet lugging the vac around, and I have to admit he did a better job than me. He pulled all of the furniture out and cleaned behind. I’m impressed.
After dropping him at pre-school I edited some photos (for me), and finished off a layout. I was planning on using this tag with a newborn photo, but a pregnancy photo seemed more fitting. Luckily I have ‘a few’. LOL. This was my belly at around 32 weeks.
Rach came over for a cuppa, and to have some photos taken. It was so lovely to catch up with her, I’m going to miss her : ( But I’m sure she’ll love Canberra (like I’d know, cos I’ve never even been there!), but its something she has wanted for a long time, and I wish her well with the whole move. We popped the camera on the tripod and set the timer and took a couple of pics of us together too. We haven’t known each other for all that long really. I used to see her work in the mags, and new she was kind of near me. It always got my attention to see someone local. After stumbling across her on Scrapboxx I sent her an email, which I thought she snubbed, but as it worked out she was working at the craft show in Melbourne, at the same time as me. Emails flew back and forth, we met & we hit it off… and now she is leaving. I really will miss her. She is a beautiful girl.
Lou-lou came to pic up Chloe’s photos. I love giving her her photos cos she always squeals with excitement. She’s good for sales when you give them to her in a public place LOL! Books me a few sittings, when people come to see what she is squealing over! I love nothing more than a mumma that loves her photos. Squeals are good, and so are tears!
