Speech! Speech!

Today, AwesomeCloud kicked butt in speech therapy. He's learning to perform for prizes - a difficult concept for him, since we don't practice bribery at home, but it's starting to sink in. He's really into the musical games, and he's starting to memorize them. I don't have much of a musical games repertoire. Just "Itsy Bitsy Spider" and "Five Little Ducks," and that's it. I had forgotten completely about "Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes." That's a good one.

His receptive vocabulary grows and grows, but his spoken vocabulary is still quite small, and consists of the same small handful of syllables as it did months ago. I can now get him to make the "ch" sound, but not in any words.

He is still a nonstop bundle of energy, even on sweltering days. There has been quite a bit of scenes like this one: me sprawled out on the couch, panting and groaning, and him running around the room in circles and dropping books on my chest.

Fortunately, he loves to go shopping, so we take advantage of the public A/C early and often.
