Its been a long time coming but all of the speech therapy is finally paying off. This week we got 3 words:
AJ speaks very softly; almost a whisper like he is afraid. But he is repeating the words. Now, we wait for the next big step...speaking without being prompted. We can see this happening any day now. It's interesting watching AJ overcome obstacles that he should have done as an infant/young toddler. I am no child development expert, but what he experiences everyday is like living with a really big infant. The difference is when he overcomes an obstacle, he knows it and shows us with a great big smile and a hug. This just warms our heart watching him flourish.
