Speech Re-eval

It's that time again...Dakin had his 6 month reevaluation for Speech Therapy. The long and short of it is that he's doing great! He's behind a little on vocal language--then again, he didn't talk for two months post-trach and since he shouldn't be talking at all with it, we're cutting him some slack. He is ahead on communicative language, though...he can identify body parts, which is evidently a 20-month skill. So hooray for that!
In other news, he has just been cute beyond belief lately. Not that he wasn't before, but he's just really hamming it up lately. Tonight before going to sleep he was in gales of laughter at a silly sound I was making, wiggling his whole cute self. I wish I had it on tape. Here he is with his permanent stroller and the bucket garden!
