Step by Step...Day by Day


Jake's development is continually improving daily...

(I'm a very happy mom)...

(I'm sure the 5 hours of preschool a day(25 a week),

and 10 hours of extra therapy a week

might have something to do with it)

But he can now understand (and do) all these things

without being shown:


-shut the door

-clap your hands

-play piano

-wave hi/bye

-give kisses

-were going to say a prayer (he puts hands together)

-patti-cake (he claps hands/raises arms up)

-spider song (puts fingertips together like the song)

-were going on the bus

-come down the stairs (walks down while holding rail)

-blow farts on Chelsey's arm (it's a long story)



Jake will do these signs if you ask him to:


-more

-please

-bye

-cracker

-milk

-want

-all done

-piano


I know it may not seem like a lot...

but it's a huge improvement from just a few months ago.


A few days ago I met with Jake's preschool teachers/therapists

and they said Jake is the most social kid ever,

loves to interact with the adults, but could care less about the kids,

can't sit still for two seconds,

rocks out whenever he hears music,

and has the biggest appetite they've ever seen...


sounds about right.
