Understanding the Babbling

Last July we had someone from our local birth to three program come to evaluate Ten on her speech and motor skills. We were to wait a month and see if there was any improvement. Well, we saw an improvement and decided not to go further in the program. It is now 8 months later and we had her checked out again.
The appointment went well and I feel we are really going to see an improvement with Ten’s speech. Today, we mainly discussed what we see in her speech daily and how many words she speaks and how she communicates her needs. The teacher that was assigned to us was absolutely phenomenal. Ten warmed up to her right away. The next appointment will be in two weeks which the speech therapist will come with the teacher. They will assess her and hopefully then we will find out if she is accepted for the program.
Super thankful for this wonderful program.


11 Months Old and Potty Training

Officially today Tenley is 11 months old, where has the time gone?! Seriously, I remember the moment I had found out I was pregnant! Then when I delivered her I didn’t know I had all this room to love another but I so did! My love for my girls grows larger everyday. Milestones Tenley has reached are walking, playing more with her sister, she babbles so much, we’re working on a cup, she sleeps thru the night, and hopefully moving to whole milk soon! So exciting!! What a ham she is!! Her personality definitely is showing each day! So funny how she stands her ground when she holds something she gets so mad and holds on for dear life. Must be because her older sister rips everything out of her hands.

Not to forget Lyla! Today she showed so much progress with potty training. We have a had a very difficult time. She was absolutely refusing to use the potty. Every potty. We tries rewards, and taking things away. It was hopeless! Until today! She stayed dry all day!! Hoping tomorrow is still looking forward!! Wish us luck! Any tips that helped your little one transition to the potty?!
