Here's you place to post those brags.
No matter how small they represent a lot of work(and tears) by parents, therapists, teachers and, of course, our little ones!
I counted up Nate's ASL signs the other night and he can produce over 50!!! I am pumped. February 15th when I last posted this brag he had 25.
Well how's this for a new word?
I was changing DS's diaper this morning and he grabbed his 'business' and said "peeenaaa". He was quite proud of himself too. :-)
Well ... at least he knows what it's called!

Yeah for PEEENAAA!
Every night before bed I do this thing where I ask DS what is favorite part of the day was. I tell him my favorite part of the day, then I ask him what his was. I always initiate.
Last night as I was tucking him in HE initiated and said "mom, lets do favorite part of the day".
Great progress on the signing and words!!
Yesterday morning I had to dress up, do my hair all up, etc because I had a big meeting. I came downstairs to get DS and when he saw me he looked away shyly and then said "Mom, you're pretty pretty." (Usually he says "You're pretty cute" because I always say he's "cute"- this was the first I've heard him say "pretty"- and I think it was in context because I was looking better than I normally do!)
DD1 caught on really quickly to our therapy objective this week, which included a lot of nonverbal back-and-forth between us. Our RDI consultant was very impressed.
It's spring break for us, and I'm so happy that I can take her pretty much anywhere. We're having a lot of fun -- the zoo, a bounce-place, and today the local rec center pool. After the zoo on Monday, she asked me what my favorite part was.
And I also want to do a quick brag on our IEP team. We finished off DD1's IEP, I'm very happy with the goals, and it was a very pleasant experience this year -- her teachers/therapists obviously know her well and want to see her succeed. I'm glad she'll be with them another year. I took our SLP/Floortime therapist along, and she said she's attended a lot of IEP meetings and that ours was indeed a good one and DD1's teachers (especially the lead SpEd teacher) are quite good.
I still feel pretty inexperienced with this, so it was nice to have confirmation from an experienced therapist that we've got a solid team and resources for DD1; otherwise it's so easy to doubt whether you've got the best situation for your child.
