I don't think I've ever mentioned this before on the blog although I know many of you know that Peter is fairly delayed in his speech. He's been going to speech therapy for about a year now, attends pre-school in a language enriched classroom, and we just started occupational therapy for some sensory issues that are definitely related to the speech delay. I'm always amazed at the progress that Peter makes while we are on break. During the two week break from pre-school and speech, Peter finally started doing so many things that we've been working on for such a long time. Things like saying, "Yes." We've been working on that one for about six months. He usually just repeats the last couple words of the question that you asked him if he wants to reply in the affirmative. He also started saying, "I'm coming" and using more I + verb combinations. On his first day back at pre-school he asked one of his teachers, "What's this for?" and as we were pulling into the garage yesterday he said, "Where's daddy?" So, he's finally asking questions too! Hooray for Peter! It's so fun to hear him speaking up! And it's all just in time - I got a note last Sunday at church requesting that Peter say the prayer in the children's group next Sunday. It should be interesting.
Here's a photo Peter took of our Christmas tree last month. He loves to take pictures - usually we get a big shot of his thumb or the carpet, but this one actually turned out looking pretty cool.
And for a crafty/sewing update: I did manage to make a new bag design this past weekend. It still needs a bit of tweaking, but I'll show you the one I made anyway, as soon as I take a picture. I'm a lucky girl and was able to make it out of Sandi's new fabric. She needs to take a picture of it for the Michael Miller website, so as soon as I get it back (which I think will be today), I 'll share.
