My dearest Baz
Your mother has been very very bad about keeping this blog up to date for you. I think it’s the winter blahs and life being crazy.
I am very sorry as it is a exciting time for you.
Back on October 27th you were 38 Months old and in a few days you will be 39 months old. I know it’s crazy that you are into your 3rd year of life I am keeping up with the months but I do like to write you these monthly letters so you know how much you have accomplished.
You are sure becoming your own little independent person.
You are loving school and riding the bus.
You are doing fairly well in ST and OT.
You are still an amazing brother to Sam.
We are working on getting you OT services through school but struggling a bit.
This email from your speech therapist at school warmed my heart and I makes me so proud of you:
I wanted to let you know what an awesome day Sebastian had at school. He demonstrated some wonderful skills. He imitated new sounds and words to songs, used new words to label (imitating or saying them after an adult) then began saying them on his own later in the day.
For example we did a song (sung to the tune of Skip to my Lou my Darling…. ) Also sent home today in his backpack along with a turkey to move to different places when singing the song…
“Turkey in the Brown Straw Ha,Ha, Ha”
Turkey in the straw my darling…
the song continues with the other verses… but to give you an idea… by the end he was saying “snow”, “ho,ho,ho”… “sky”… “hi,hi,hi”
During snack he imitated “Sue I want…” which he has never said before…
Some really nice things… just wanted you to know. He, took off his shoes with only a little bit of help, and put on his boots, even completed zipping up his coat after the zipper was started for him…he was so proud! :)
He hugged his friend after the friend said “good job Sebastian, I’m proud of you” … they gave high five then Sebastian hugged him… it was priceless…(this part makes me so happy honey. You are just a amazing little dude)
If you would please talk about the song Turkey in the Brown Straw and do your best to sing it with him…see if he will show you what he did for us… it may be different because he is at home…but even if you ask him to show you different things on the page and try to say them…
Great Day! Thanks for all you do, care and support!
Well I love you and I promise I will work on getting better keeping up with letters to you.
