34 Months

My dear Baz,

On Friday you turned 34 months old. The last few months I have been struggling with the you will be 3 soon and venturing off to preschool. You have grown up so much and I love it but I also miss you as a baby. Such a bittersweet thing I know most parents feel.

Anyways, you have started some private speech therapy. I am hoping it will help you get some more words out. I know you are struggling as are mom and dad but I think we are doing better then before.

School hasn’t been out much with summer here now so there isn’t much to report there.

Well I love you and you are turning into such a amazing little boy.

First Private Speech Therapy

Today was Sebastian’s first appointment since his eval with Melissa at Fairview Ped rehab in Eagan.

We all went being Dan will be taking him and Sam every Wednesday while I am at work. We wanted to see how Sam would do and make sure Dan knew where to go, etc.

He liked Melissa so that is good. I liked her a lot while working with Sam.

She basically asked us some questions and then played with Sebastian. he was really excited to play with all sorts of toys it took a little bit to calm him down.

I learned a lot in terms as what is expected at his age, what things are normal and that words like do for go is considered a word.

We learned some new ways to talk to him to help with making connections.

I am not if I will be able to update about these appointments but hopefully I will get information from the husband on them so I can and just have an idea about how he is doing. I am so used to going to sam’s therapy appointments it is going to weird not being there.
