I've been sooo bad about posting. Sorry about that! The twins had an evaluation with speech and audiology. The audiologist says that both of them hear perfectly. The speech person says that they're both at a 9-10 month level of cognition/understanding language, so of course they can't talk. You can't talk about things you don't understand, and you understand a lot more than you can talk about. Think of it like this, when you learn a second language it's a lot easier to understand what someone is saying than to actually speak, right? It's the same with babies. She said that we need to have Early Intervention come for an hour of therapy once a week for EACH of the twins. (So that's really two hours a week) That's the minimum...she'd love for more. She also wants to see Dovid in two weeks for a feeding evaluation because he's a skinny boy that hates eating. That should be fun. :-)
Now then, today is Auntie Beh's birthday! I'm not going to tell you how old she is today because she'd probably kill me. Anyway, in honor of Auntie Beh's birthday, I present to you a video I like to call "Dovid and the Mailbox". This was taped today! He received the mailbox from Grandma Peggy (that's my mom) as a present the last time she was in town a few weeks ago, and he *just* learned how to use it this week. This was a huge fine motor skill success. Enjoy!
