I've mentioned Kellen's speech issues before, and was referred to see a specialist...and have an autism evaluation. His pediatrician saw something that scared him, and I've seen it before too. I guess its the years of working in the developmental day program that helped me connect some of the dots. After waiting 6 months for a freaking appointment, the day is FINALLY here!
Kellen's autism evaluation day is here! His appt is at 1:00 and I
took the day off for it. I am SO nervous and scared! I don't know what
to expect. I don't know if I will be in the room with him. I don't
know if he will be scared if I am not. I am just a nervous wreck. I am
glad that he is getting evaluated though. He isn't saying many words
at all and that really scares me. I just hope that he has a speech
delay, not autism. My poor baby. I know its hard for him. He gets so
frustrated when we can't figure out what his gestures mean and why he
cries or screams. We need answers. We need to help my baby boy.
On the other hand, Gray turned 11 months old yesterday! 1 more month until this crazy boy is ONE YEAR OLD!!! I can't believe it. So, this is what my little monster is up to...

*big fat feet!

*love playing with this little flute, you carry it everywhere!
*you drink about 6 bottles, and eat lunch and dinner. You love dinner, and you eat a lot, but you still want your milkie too!
*you absolutely LOVE it when we sing Patty cake, you love it! You try to sing it with me, you are so cute! You say, "daddy cake, daddy cake, daddy cake" and clap your hands, I swear its the best! Daddy loves it too! ;)
*you like to clap your hands
*you scream when your brother screams
*you love it when Kellen plays with you, not so much when he is rough with you. But you are starting to stick up for yourself and push him away or hit him when he gets rough.
*you love to play ball. You toss it up and watch it bounce.
*your growing TOO fast! But I love you more and more every single day.
