I'll admit, it's been hard to watch sometimes because I see his delays. Garrett has also started to do more things like stacking and lining up items of the same type. But then again he's doing so well with all the help he's been getting.
When we started with EI Garrett didn't really have any words, he didn't like being transitioned from one activity to another and didn't play with other children.
Now he has a handful of words but also seem to understand us better. He transitions easily with the use of a song, even from his favorite activities, without a tantrum. And now he not only plays around other children, he plays WITH them.
These may not seem like much to most parents but to us they are big. Things like imitating our faces or hand movements show that he is catching up in his development. It's exciting for us when he does something as simple as stick his tongue out at us if we've made the face at him.

He even danced in IKEA.
Now we've added music therapy to the mix and he loves it. I can't wait to see what new things he does next. He really surprises us every day and we're very lucky to have such wonderful resources to help him out.
