Appt went great!

Another mobile blog post here. I just don’t have the time to sit down and open my laptop some weeks.

The ENT appt went well. His tubes are still in place and wide open.

Dr. G asked a lot of questions about Lukes speech & feeding therapy, general development, hearing, and his follow up appts with the ENT at ACH.

We will be given another appt in 4-6 mos to see if the tubes are still in place. I can’t remember exactly, but a high percentage of kids who have tubes once will require repeated tubes. He just wants to keep an eye on things.

Speech went pretty well today! Monday was horrible. I think C is starting to try new strategies with Luke. Also, she is trying to incorprate parallel play since Luke is so shy. Another little girl will start her therapy in Lukes area and play close to him. He didn’t like being near her at all today!

DT went well Tuesday. He played in the bean pit! Bug advancement!

Since we’re in therapy and we’ve just started Montessori home preschool work my goal for the basket this year was for everything to be educational towards completing specific goals in his therapy and with Montessori. 

bunny book

Bunny Book – I got out his other Easter/bunny books and plan on talking about Easter with him

easter basket

King Frog watering can – used for Montessori work – gardening, Yellow wiggly worm – used for sensory desensitization, Blue bubble bottle – used for therapy – hand / eye coordination and fine motor skills, Green chick – used for Montessori work, Play Doh – used for sensory desensitization primarily, Echo Mic – used for therapy – encouraging vocalization. 

I should’ve taken a photo of the whole basket because it’s SUPER CUTE. Grandma A got it for him last Easter and had his name monogrammed on it. You can kind of see it in the first photo behind the book.

Our ST is working with us through feeding therapy also. C is great! We love her. Luke gives her kisses… 

She’s recommending we let him play in his food. Isn’t that funny? We’re we taught to NOT play with our food? It’s fine with me though.. as long as it helps. We do already let him play with his food since it helps him get comfortable with it. It’s really helped him but we’re needing to get him more comfortable with some different textures of foods. He’s not totally comfortable with slippery foods, cold foods, anything wet, etc. 

Now we’re taking the playing with food to the next level. 🙂 


We stripped him down and let him dig in!
