We cannot handle the cuteness! After more than a year hiatus, The Little Couple is back for another season, and it’s already living up to expectations. In a new sneak peak of tonight’s brand new episode, daughter Zoey, 5, attends a speech therapy session and it is seriously adorable.
In the clip, Zoey’s speech-language pathologist of two years, Anna Eifert, reveals what the two usually work on during their meetings. “Zoey had been exposed to an Indian language prior to arriving in the United States, so you’re going to see some delays — that would be expected,” she said of Zoey, whom Bill and Jen adopted from an orphanage in India when she was 2 years old. Anna goes through a series of exercises to teach Zoey words such as “snowman” and “snap” before they moved on to a game called Milk and Cookies, which assists Zoey with articulation.
“Zoey’s speech has come a really long way in the two and a half years I’ve seen her for therapy,” Anna said. “I feel like her communication will be developmentally age-appropriate.” She added that Zoey is generally happy and engaged during their sessions. “Zoey was Zoey today — she did great. She was her usual lively personality, who really engages in the different activities and lets you know what she likes and what she doesn’t like. It’s always fun working with her.” So sweet!
Watch the full episode tonight at 8 p.m. EST on TLC.
