THIS is an empty toy storage bin in the playroom. Adam took the drawers out while getting toys, and Levi chased the beach ball into it. He got stuck! Wes took these pics and said that Levi was only marginally unhappy. The fact that he had the beach ball seemed to balance out his discomfort.
THAT is the huge Buzz Lightyear Adam got in the mail from someone special. Thank you!!
And THIS is the set of books that arrived for Levi.
THIS is how Addy (the little girl I've been taking care of during the day) woke up from her nap on Friday.
And last but not least, THIS is a video of Levi reaching some speech milestones. You'll see him tooting his own horn (and meeting one of his speech therapy goals...blowing!) and saying "tickle, tickle, tickle" and "bubble." I am learning that he doesn't talk much unless we work INTENSIVELY with him. It takes several minutes before he will mimic most of the time. I can't just encourage language. I have to do mini-speech therapy sessions to get much out of him. Our speech therapist uses prompting techniques, which really seem to help. I sure wish this didn't require so much effort, but that is just how it is, and we will do what needs to be done to help this little guy! Can you believe he will be two in May?
