Apraxia of speech


It’s been so nice being alone with Oliver for a few days!! Even though I miss Eddie-Bo so much, but he’s coming back tonight from Miami. Cute with a father and son trip!!
Back to Oliver Franzen, a busy, active, social and very happy little guy. He’s so lovable, gives the best hugs and kisses and is always in a good mood, the happiest person I know ♥  I’ve been telling you many times that we go to speech therapy. He’s diagnosed with Apraxia of speech, (verbal apraxia) a motor speech disorder, where the brain has problem to move the lips, jaw and tongue, needed for speech. Sometimes a whole phrase comes out, but then he can’t repeat it. (same thing if you lose the speech from a stroke). His speech is getting better and better, even though he’s way behind kids in his age, he’s turning four in May. So far he’s doing so good, never gets frustrated but that’s my fear that will kick in the older he gets. They say he will talk eventually, but it will take time! I can’t wait to have longer conversations with him, he has a lot to say and I understand a lot, but far from everything. Two weeks ago he started going to a preschool at Beaumont hospital, where we do most of his speech therapy as well, and one of his therapist is also now his preschool teacher! I hope this will help pushing him!!

Pictures from his room this morning:


He loves airplanes and spaceships, so I had to get these pictures from Target. Basket from Land and Nod.

My sitter just came over, Oliver’s absolute favorite!! So, I’m gonna do some cleaning and laundry, and get everything ready for Eddie-Bo’s party tomorrow! He was a little confused that he’s having the party two days before his real birthday… :)

I hope you are having a great weekend!!
