Speechless


Yesterday Warren and I met with Jiro's speech therapist at the University of Memphis for his semester evaluation. She raved about his progress and basically said that he is speaking at an age appropriate level and that he can easily correct his errors when cued. And then she said that ethically she couldn't recommend anymore therapy for him! Yep, that's right. He's done! Yay, Jiro!

She wants to see him once over the summer and again in October for a final evaluation, and she warned us that when he starts losing his teeth he might lisp a little, but wow! We're so happy. Jiro has worked REALLY hard over the last two years and I'm just so proud of him.

I told him that to celebrate, he could have whatever he wanted for dinner. He chose a hot dog cut up in pieces, rice, and rainbow sherbet ice cream.
