The boys had speech therapy this morning and the therapist likes how much more comprehensive understanding Brady has. Brady really seems to understand a lot more lately, but the words just aren't there yet. Although he does love to say DADDY, DADA, YEAH and HI as loud as possible. Jax took a tumble today and when I gave Jax a hug to comfort him, Brady came running over and hugged the other side of my arm and starting patting my back... he can be SO sweet! Then Jax pushed him off me because Jax hasn't accepted that I'm a mommy to anyone else yet.
Jax doesn't quite have as much comprehension, but we swear he says BUBBLES and BACKPACK sometimes when he hears it said. Jax showed a lot of resistance during the feeding practice, and ended up gagging pretty bad at the end, so we have a lot of steps to cover again.
I received some paperwork from the alternative doctor's office requesting a few more tests be ordered and done for Jax. They're all blood work, so I'm going to wait a little while to give him a break from needles, and to also save up for the costs. The tests will let us know where his levels are and if it's safe to start pulling back any of the supplements he's on. It will be so interesting to compare his test results from last June to this June and see how things have changed in the past year with numbers since it's so evident in his overall health.
