First day of school was two weeks ago. How has it been two weeks already?!
I’ve been running a thousand different directions doing a million things. Owen had an eye appointment last week and a 3 year check up today.
His eyes are status quo. The doctor said they are looking good and are aligned like they should be, but he is suggesting Owen stay in glasses for now. I’m fine with it. After all, he is so darn handsome in those glasses.
His doctor appointment today was a little different than expected. It wasn’t anything shocking and he didn’t need shots, but he ended up coming home with several prescriptions and a referral to a speech therapist. She thinks he has allergies and reflux (still) so he is taking a nasal spray nightly and is on a reflux medicine twice daily.
He is also not enunciating the first letter of words like she
would like him to be doing. He speaks in full conversations and can express himself great, but his speech is a little difficult to understand. For instance, instead of Thomas he will say Bomas. And when he changes the first letter of words throughout a sentence it can be hard to follow. Just ask grandma…. haha! The common line at the cabin this summer was “Ryan, help me out here. What does your brother want?” and of course Ryan knew exactly what Owen was saying. Mommy and Ryan seem to be the only ones who speak “Owen” language. Even daddy struggles from time to time.
But like Dr. Beckford said, a speech therapist isn’t going to hurt so let’s just see what they say and what they suggest. So we’re doing it. I’m making an appointment and we’ll see what happens.
I feel our calendar getting busier and busier. Oh, and I just signed them up for swim lessons twice a week during the dinner hour. Logistically I have no idea how I’m going to work it out with my commute those days. I feel my shoulders tensing as I think about it. But it’ll all be fine. I know it will all work out somehow. And they will love their swim lessons.
