Hear Colby do his speech

Here's a little quick video of Colby during his speech session this week. They were going through the first set of flash cards. You might have to listen closely to hear him, so turn those speakers up! We are so proud of the progress he is making. Who knows, another couple months and he might be talking in sentences!

Speech update

Colby has been doing great at speech. His favorite thing is to do the flashcards. His therapist is really good with him. He has started saying so many more words now. It's great.

This past Monday, he showed her what he likes to do on my iphone. He showed her some of his flashcards that I have on there. Then he showed her how he likes to find pictures on the phone and place them in Disney frames. He's a smart little bugger. He can figure out how to navigate through the different apps.
The downside of having him on my phone, sometimes he makes some calls and I don't realize it.

Funny little man

When I dropped Sam off at school, I told him that I was going to watch him walk into his classroom. I said feel free to turn around wave to me and do a little dance if you want to.

He's so funny. He was in the gate, about half way up to his class. He turns around waves really big and then starts dancing. To make it even better, he brought his air guitar.

He's a funny little man. He didn't care who was there or who saw him.
