One year ago my little love muffin still was not talking much so we had a speech therapist coming to the house once a week to work with him. We were doing sign language to get some form of communication so the frustration level wouldn't get out of hand. It was very trying for him and I both so we sought out the help of the therapist to help.
And Help she did!
Now we have plenty of conversations about any and every thing! The other day when I called to talk with him on the phone he was telling me he was 'having a discussion with dad about going to the park'. He uses plenty of big words now. You just do not expect these big words to come out of this child.
The other day he wanted to go to the bookstore, I told him no. He turned around and asked Kris. Kris told him maybe so I spoke up and said I told him no. Zack tells me that Daddies make the rules and I shouldn't lie. (I can only imagine what Kris is teaching him when I am not within hearing distance). I went on to explain to Zack that Mommies and Daddies are equal and we make the rules together. He responded with a big "well that's impressive". I nearly cried I was laughing so hard.
I just think back to a year ago and I am in total amazement at how far he has come with his speech and his comprehension of the English language.

Yes there are plenty of moments I think back at how quiet it used to be in the house but I am so glad we got help at an early age. It has been seven and a half months since the therapist said she no longer needed to come out here and I think if she saw him today she would be floored with him.

Leah, that's amazing! I love his comment "That's impressive." Too funny! These little guys are growing up too fast!
