They still look cool even when they're smeared with sidewalk chalk. I was going to buy Drew some corduroy pants but then I thought I would check his bag of 3T clothing from Ben before I did that.... and sure enough there are two pairs in there! They fit perfectly and are so cute on him. They even do the requisite zipzipzip when he walks which I love.
Drew had his hearing test with the audiologist today. It's been a long 8 weeks waiting for this appointment to come around! As specialists go apparently ENT is a pretty quick one to get in with. The good news is that there is no issue with his hearing. Nothing that would hinder normal speech development.
In the meantime he continues to DAZZLE us with his sign language and the things that he comes up with. It's just fascinating to watch him learn. I think he's doubled the number of signs that he knows since I last posted it. Tomorrow marks his 8th week of speech therapy and we have I think 10 new signs to tell Annie about. AND he's starting to say "Dada" which Dave is so happy about!
I've been working on his Halloween knowledge and he recognizes jack-o-lanterns when he sees them now. I show them to him in the stores, and I draw pictures of them, point them out in picture books, and I have a door mat outside with a jack-o-lantern face on it. He saw it and tried to say that word! What a mouthful. But somehow he's getting pieces of that word and working on pronouncing it, too cute.
