Gracie the Jabberbox

A post and run today! We're taking Gracie to a speech therapist in a couple of hours for an evaluation. A "just in case" sort of thing, as recommended by our pediatrician. IF there is any kind of delay, we want to catch it asap so that she will be in an "early intervention" program. This will save her from taking any speech classes when she gets to school. :)

What we're really hoping to hear is, "Oh no, she's totally fine. Go about your business." But if we need to set up some more appointments for her, so be it. I'm honestly not that worried about it either way. The girl can TALK, and she does a lot. We just can't understand what the heck she's saying half of the time. Haha.

Gracie tends to pronounce parts of words, but not always the whole word. I can usually string together what she is saying and after asking her a few times to repeat it, I can figure out what she's trying to tell me. It's still a frustration, but we've come a long way in just a few months. So we'll see!

I have four people to bathe, get ready, and feed lunch before Eric shows up and we take off. So I've gotta get scootin! Hope you have a great day!

Random blog follower here! BUT, my son receives speech therapy through Early Intervention and I would HIGHLY recommend his therapist, Deb Biekert. Just throwing that out there! :) Good luck to you.
