Henry is eating dinner in this picture, hence the dirty face.
Yesterday morning we had 3 lovely Speech Therapists come to our home to evaluate Henry. Sometimes he can be hard to understand so his parents were becoming a little worried.
The good news is Henry did not qualify for speech therapy. He was above his age level in all their testing, even in his vocabulary. He just has a hard time pronouncing words.
Here is my conversation with him this morning. He comes to me and says:
"Where's P.J. ?" ( easy enough to understand)
Me: " He must be down in the laundry room with mommy."
Henry: "Mommy is rying."
Me: (distressed) "Mommy is crying?"
Henry: " No, mommy is rying."
Me: "Mommy is drawing?"
Henry: "No, mommy is rying."
Me: "Mommy is drying?" ( I know I am reaching now.)
Henry: "No, mommy is rying." (Every time he says it exactly the same and is very patient with
Me: "MOMMY IS SHOWERING?" ( ding ding ding)
Henry: "Yeah." (Big smile)
I hope I'm never in a spot and have to ask him for directions.
