52 Hours

As I've posted before, Ben has been doing very well with Speech. He's been in Speech Therapy for about 4 months now (once per week). When he first started, he had about 5 words...although he had stopped using them. Now, it's a completely different story. I'd guess he has 40 words. Maybe more. He doesn't form any 2-word sentences yet but he's very verbal.

He had Speech Therapy this morning and she's so happy with him, she doesn't want to see him for SIX MONTHS! I was thrilled. I knew she was going to cut back how often she saw him, but I had no idea that we'd get 6 whole months off. Granted, she wants to see him if he's not forming 2-word sentences by November. But I'm sure he will.

So basically, I have 52 hours per year to fill up. I'm not quite sure what to do with it.


  1. Great news, go Ben!!!! We have our speech evaluation soon. I had to cancel last week. Nervous..but I'll keep everyone posted.

  2. That is AWESOME for everyone. I often wonder what our schedules and lives would look like without therapy. WHAT would I ever do with all that time? ;-)
