An update on Baby Waffles speech process....

I though I would give you a little up date on Baby Waffle. I got to see an actual SLP today. Actually it worked out nicely because the asst who we usually see got vandalized last night(not that THAT is a good thing) so we got the whole time with the SLP. She said she does think it is more oral-motor and not so much neurological. She also said she 'isn't convinced it is Apraxia'. Which is good enough for me right now because that means she is at least taking that into consideration. She said he does have 'softness' in his jaw area. She is the first person to flat out say the paci is not helping that, let's get it gone. (he was melting down for a nap at the time and managed to go out with only about 5 mins of fussing while the SLP was discussing this SO all the paci's are now in the big garbage can in the yard).
Oh she also said before we discussed the Apraxia that the asst thought I was worried about autism (which is when I said no apraxia) but the SLP said she doesn't think anything autism related should be a concern...which I didnt think it was but let's face it it is always good to hear that, lol.

So at this Point we are concentrating on eliminating the paci(done) and surviving that(will keep you posted on how that goes)and she is making up a list of activities for us to work on

The Waffles go camping...DAY 2

What a difference a day makes!!! The sun came out and dried up all the rain giving us a chance to spend some time out by the ocean. The kids had a blast even though it was still wayyyy too cold to really get in the water.
we decided to go have some dinner and visit some shops before once again returning to the campsite for a fire and s'mores. Baby Waffle was again running from his shadow and this time I was able to catch it on camera!

I will wrap up our adventure next time!!!!!

a little off the mao...

Wow has it really been so long since I last posted a blog? We have been so busy with school which has been going great but also I have not yet found a good blogger app for my ipad so if anyone can suggest one....
Anyway, we are just a few weeks away from ending this school year. We will be schooling year round though so while this year will end mid June, we will start our new year July 5th. I am ready to get to our new work so I can't wait to get through what we have left of this years stuff.
I will update more later and go through not only what we are finishing up but what we will be moving on to.

the Waffles go camping...

so we are camping in a tent at the Myrtle Beach state park first day down it starts raining like itts never going to stop, the tent was leaking, everyjing was just wet! We were able to get in a quick walk on the beach

and we were able to start a fire. The fire was the highlight of the night, Baby Waffle discovered his shadow! At first we couldn't figure out what the heck he was doing. He kept backing up in an odd way. By the time I figured out what he was doing and got the camera he had stopped but just trust me it was funny!
By about 4 am I was just through! Ready to pack it in and come home. I was sooooo tired of the rain but thankfully we stuck it time, day 2!
