Speech therapy visit tomorrow

If you have read my letters to Nathan, you'll know that he isn't really saying much right now. He has 4-5 words that he uses all the time and isn't really gaining vocabulary.

So I decided to contact a speech therapist to ask for an evaluation. It is tomorrow! I am pretty nervous. The lady that came by last week to give me information on the company asked a ton of questions about his skills and she said that he is very advanced in physical and cognitive development. And she agreed that he is a tad delayed in his speech patterns. But we won't know for sure until the evaluation.

Most likely he is just a late bloomer in the speech area (which is common for boys and only children).

I will update after our visit tomorrow.
