The babies are not saying much yet, though they do speak in their own multiples’ language. Perhaps some day I will capture it on video and add it to a post. They know what they are saying, but we do not have the secret language decoder to figure it out. Since their secret language is not in English, they are all in speech therapy. They say Mama and Daddy and a few other words but are behind other toddlers the same age.
Last week in speech therapy, the babies’ therapist suggested that they sip apple sauce through a straw. I was skeptical at first because I pictured them simply dipping their hands in it when the straw became too difficult. She suggested I pop the straw right through the foil of the small apple sauce cups. So, I gave it a shot and the babies took on this novel task with concentration. They enjoyed it very much and we were told it would help develop their oral motor skills.
