We've started weekly speech therapy with our Babies Can't Wait therapist. She's very popular in our house. Both of my children love her (the furry one as well as the not-so-furry one). She brings cool toys and flashcards with cool pictures on them. We are focusing on hard B sounds at this point, with a few P's thrown in for good measure.
We work daily on the flashcards and occasionally he pops some nice B's. H's have also spontaneously sprouted in his vocabulary. And the other night he said "pizza!" Much of his speech, however, remains unintelligible as it was before. Mama is nice and clear, but Baba comes out "Momo." Micah is still pronounced "Nuh."
On the other hand, his language is growing like gangbusters. His new favorite words are "huge" (when referring to just about anything bigger than a grain of rice), and "too" (Libby golf cart ride, too?).
The obturator is still stitched in his mouth. I'm not sure when it will be taken out, but it will most likely be in the next couple of weeks. He remains on his soft food diet. He's getting tired of it and Mama's tired of cooking that way, too.
I leave you with the many faces of Micah.
