My little boy is learning,...

I am just amazed the little things that my boy has been able to do,... Jorel has been showing signs of great response in his Speech theraphy and OT. Now undertaking these is no sweat already. I often have him walk into the room, settle in his seat and have this face that says -- "I am all set to learn". Like any mom - those are little indications there is progress somewhere. They are our baby steps to learning and I consider it very positive signs.

He did some quick matching, doing parts of the face, taking up the little tasks at OT that he used to just tantrum however now with little fuss. He is improving in his thinking skills and retains a whole lot of the play skills he is being taught. One of the statements that our Speech therapist said stuck in my head " He is responding well, there is something in there.."... This in reference to all the little tasks we have been working on the past months and how he flys through them now. Those worry wart thoughts of mine are starting to diminish -- these little things have really propelled me to work harder with him,.....

Now he will face theraphy weekly now -- its time to act swifter in the signing, the pictures and the working team (myself, his therapists and his pre school teachers) in his life. I ferevently pray that this year will really bring out the best in him. And he will speak -- I know in GOD's time he will,.. I claim it ........

Here is something to share with you that truly warmed my heart....

I hope it will make you smile -- just as much as it made me....

Galing galing naman Jorel!

He is so lucky to have you as his mommy!

That's the reason God gave you Jorel. Cause God knows that you will take care of Jorel with all of your heart and mind.

Hugs to you and Jorel. Hope to see you again soon. =)
