Hello friends,
     Micah was looking good today, and was up in his chair from 8:30 in the morning til around 6 this evening!  I took three of the kids up to the hospital with me and he made a noise of greeting to them.  He smiled at them several times and he even tried to push the mouse button on the computer to try to play a game.  Yesterday I was with Micah during speech therapy and has graduated from getting stuff rubbed on his tongue to getting candy sprayed into his mouth.  The therapist has a small device that she can record something like, "more please" with a big button on the other side to make it play.  He did excellent yesterday with the device and when he quit pushing she recorded, "I"m done" and then he pushed it again.  At one point, his room mate came in (he's 7) to see what Micah was doing so the therapist asked Micah to show him how it worked.  Micah pushed the button and out came, "more please".  Then the therapist gave him another squirt of candy.  The little boy stood with his mouth & eyes wide open, completely astonished!  He said, "how does it know what he wants to say?!"  We had a good laugh over that one.  
     I'm keeping this short this evening as Thomas just got here, and we are going to watch a movie with the kids while eating some of those scrumptious cookies from the co-op ladies in Jackson, Thanks ladies!
Blessings to you all!
