Speech therapy

This is Ava in speech therapy yesterday. I've taken plenty of pictures and videos of occupational and physical therapy but I don't think I've ever posted anything from speech therapy. I wanted capture it on video to show John some of the things we do since he has never gotten to experience it. I didn't even notice, but John noticed that she is pretending the spoon is an airplane flying into the baby's mouth (I think?). I don't normally do the airplane spoon thing. But her daddy does, and apparently she likes it. I'm sorry, but this girl cracks me up! I could watch her all day!

Ava is quite the little Mama! I just love how full of life she is!

It was fun to watch her, was she saying mama the whole time? Ava is such a special little spirit, so sweet, loving.

Kara and Amanda also throw everything on the floor. LOL

What does the twisty pointing into the cheeks mean in sign language? 

Charissa said...

The finger twisting on the cheek means "candy" but she uses for anything that is yummy. If you notice the therapist says, "Mmmmm, yummy", and that is why she does the sign. Pretty clever girl, huh?

wow she has had a growth spurt!!
i cannot believe the difference since she came home in looks, growth and the way she can handle her own actions

She sure is smart! I love how she plays and talks...I wonder when she was saying "Mama", if she meant that she was the mama of the baby :o) She looks so big now! You all are doing such a great job! Awesome family!

She's such a cutie! You're an awesome mama, Ava!

"Rats! This pizza tastes like plastic!"

Hey, maybe her "tasting" the food first is like sticking your pinky in a baby bottle to make sure it's not too hot. She has to see if that food tastes okay before she gives it to baby =)

LOL, her doing the plane thing was so cute! What a smart girl!
