Row, Row, Row... Ah!

Logan had another great session with Ms. Pam, his speech teacher, today! When I told him that she was coming this morning he clapped his hands and said, "Yay!" (which was a first!) While she was here, he really enjoyed playing with her iPad, especially the app that showed pictures of animals and included animal sounds and music. (She said that most kids weren't as interested in the music as he was, which is interesting. I told her we don't listen to that much music without words so I was a bit surprised at how well he liked the classical music.)

I excitedly told her that he has really taken off since his last session and mentioned all of the new animal sounds he has picked up, including "rawr" for lion, "ah ah ah" for monkey, and "tweet tweet" for bird. He also says "cheep cheep" for chick.

On the 10th, I heard him say "choo choo" for train and he waved "hi" for the first time on the 14th. (He has been waving bye-bye for a little while now.) One of the teachers at Logan's LESA playgroup told me that he said "down" yesterday, which I have not heard before and today during his session with Pam he said "cat" and "go."

When we started attending playgroup, I learned this version of the song "Row, Row, Row Your Boat" and we started singing it to Logan every time we brush his teeth:
Row, row, row your boat
gently down the stream.
If you see an alligator,
don't forget to scream! Ah! (scream)
Now, Logan rocks himself from side to side and sings along with his own version: "Row, Row, Row... Ah!" (scream), which is cute and pretty funny to hear. He clearly knows the beginning and the end of the song, including the best part, the scream. Who needs all those extra words, anyway?
