Is Sawyer deaf?

He is not.  We thought so for the first few months, but he can hear.  He has some sensory, speech, and developmental issues that we’re working on.  But he’s doing amazing with therapy, so i’m very very hopeful for the future.  He’s such a sweetheart and it just makes me sad that he can’t really communicate what he wants, needs, feels, or anything.  But after last night, I’m thinking he will be just fine :)

Sawyer

Sawyer had his 2nd session with the speech therapist yesterday.   She is super sweet, and even lets Emerson get in on the activities.  They work together for about an hour, once a week, and we work with him the rest of the time.  But yesterday, was an extra special session.  Sawyer signed for the 1st time ever!!!!!!!  It’s probably the first time he has really communicated anything to us, to let us know something. 

The therapist was blowing bubbles, while the kids were running around trying to pop them.  The therapist, the kids’ mom, and myself were all standing around doing the sign for “more”, and trying to get him to understand that when he does that specific sign, it means more of something.  So more bubbles start flying around, and the kids are losing their minds.  We start to ask Sawyer if he wants more, and he started signing for “more” and clapping his hands!!!  Of course I start jumping up and down freaking out like a little school girl.

The other amazing part of therapy was that he sat down for 10 whole minutes, and did a puzzle.  After showing him a few times, he was able to get the pieces and start figuring it out for himself.  But he literally sat on the couch for 10 minutes, didn’t move off of it once, and did that puzzle over and over.  

 I can’t find the words to express how happy I am for him.  I love my little guy so much..  

My parents neighborhood had a community day event at their local church over the weekend.  Since it was my weekend with the kids, I was able to take them and we had a blast!  
Both kids got inside of their 1st fire truck, Emme had her 1st sucker, and Sawyer reclined and ate snacks the whole time.  Unfortunately both kids were effing zombies by the time we got home.  And Sunday was even worse.  

At least we had a good time there!

Happy 2nd Birthday to Emerson and Sawyer.  The pirate birthday went really well, and everyone had a great time.  Today we are taking the kids to the zoo, so hopefully they’ll get a kick out of it!!  

They’ve gotten so damn big, it just kind of makes me sad :(  But I can’t wait to see the amazing people they’ll grow into!

2nd Birthday Party

So tomorrow we’re having the kid’s 2nd birthday party.  Pirate themed of course.  I’m hoping I can get some good pictures to post up.  Then Sunday, we’re taking them to the zoo.  Maybe they’ll get a kick out of that?
