Taylor Update: Homework
What a day! Taylor had such a great day!
He had music today, again! LOVE IT!!! This is by far my favorite therapy for him!! He did great – the therapist even gave us a sheet of articulation exercises for him to continue with in the evenings – in fact, as I type this, I can hear him doing them in the shower 😊 He wants to get better, and it shows every day… all day!
With so much to cram into 5.5 hours, it’s hard to keep up with everything some days… for us… but not for him. Taylor just bounces from station to station, waiting for the next challenge of the day! Jennifer and I are so proud of him!
PT was a little different… today he was trained on exercises to do in the evenings. They really feel he can get better faster with a few extra, but important, exercises! More homework, and he welcomed it! We will start those tomorrow!
He did some more vision exercises today too! When he was talking to Joshua on the phone this evening, Josh asked how his vision is doing – T said “I feel like it’s getting a little better” PENNY! He has not been a fan of recognizing the slight improvements, but I think he really is ‘seeing’ them a little at a time 😊
We would have started PT tonight, but we got a little distracted… the mail came today and he had FORTY cards to read! HE WAS SO EXCITED!! Thank you to everyone who has sent cards, he really loves them SO MUCH!! We read him each one – he tries to see the colors too… and he really appreciates all the encouraging words!
We also read him the update from Facebook every night! I love that he looks forward to the update… he especially likes the comments and encouragement from everyone! THEY MEAN SO MUCH TO US ALL!! ❤️
We have a lot to do tomorrow… so a good night’s rest is in order! I hope you all have a great night and ROCK IT tomorrow!! I CAN’T WAIT!
Until tomorrow… Miracles Happen! WE LOVE YA’LL!!!
