    yup... double ear infection here!
    hope everyone at least gets some snuggle time, as the silver lining of family time being marred by sickness!

    We're ringing in the New Year with pneumonia. The Dr thought it may be RSV but after a chest xray (with a medieval torture device), it's pneumonia. Another baby at daycare had it earlier in the week. Hope everyone's LOs are feeling better soon!

    [QUOTE]So glad I could be of help! :) BTW  -she does it with books too.  But she doesn't just read them - she points to things and says "where's the monkey" or "what is he doing" Your LO may not speak yet, but you can say "Find the tree" and see if you get a response or some pointing.

    Lily, do you and your husband follow the same "rules" with your son and daughter (but esp. son), that is, does he have to answer to get more servings at meals, to do a puzzle, etc?  I've found it's sometimes hard to build those requirements into our toddler classrooms when we have a child working on language - seems like he/she wil do it with the speech therapist but not in the classroom when other children don't have to do it to get more milk, etc.  Or perhaps it's that the teachers are softies and won't insist like the speech therapist will?

    CT - no, not all the time.  I do try and work with him every day, but even the EI specialists says you can't do it all the time.  I do other things too, to help his language.  I repeat everything he tries to say so he hears it correctly.  We sing a lot. And when I read, I do stop and have him tell me things on the page. "Who is that?" "What is George riding?" ...stuff like that.
    And we try and use "touch cues". DS says "bumming" for "coming"(as an example) and I point to my mouth and say "ka" "ka" "coming" and get him to repeat correctly.  He often can say a word correctly and then when he puts it in a sentence, goes right back to his old pronounciation.
    He's getting better every day.  I'm currently getting ready for phase II - getting him evaluated by the town SLP to get ready for the transition out of EI this summer.

    We also took DS to the pedi this week.  He was at the beginning stages of croup.  The medicine worked great though so no more horrible cough just a regular cough and a nasty runny nose.  He too is having trouble sleeping at night when his nose gets clogged and wants mommy all the time.  I love the snuggling but feel bad that it is because he isn't feeling well.
