AJ Every Day: June 2nd

Another week of speech therapy, I mean coaching, for the little dude this morning. Still no words. I would be lying if I said it didn't worry me that he's still not talking. When most people ask about it, I blow it off because I don't want to seem like a neurotic mama. And really, we're doing all we can do for him with Early Intervention, so I don't like to harp on it. But deep down I worry. And I'll probably continue worrying until he starts talking and never shuts up. And then, well then I'm sure I'll have something else to worry about.

Funny story from this morning's session: I asked Miss Kelly if she was okay with me taking some pictures, and she said sure so I snuck away to get my camera. Well, the little dude must have heard me leave the room because he turned around and came running at me full throttle...tripping over his own two feet in the process. After he stood up from his face plant, rubbing his poor little head, I said, "AJ What happened???" and he said, "Ah duh DUH!!!" which totally and completely sounded like he was trying to say, "I fell DOWN!" Kelly heard it too and we both started laughing.

The little dude might not have words, but he definitely gets his point across!

Cute! How old is he now Steph? I have nieces and nephews who haven't talked until well past 2. And I'm assuming they've checked his hearing - I'm partial to the hearing impaired. LOL

Love that you're doing the picture a day.

I am so proud of you for getting a photo. I am too afraid to ask to take one! I always wanted to get one when she was in PT...never asked. And I've never taken one now with speech either!!

And there is nothing wrong with being worried. You are his are going to worry about him until he's 50. And then you'll STILL worry! He'll talk Steph. He's just wants to do it on HIS terms. ;)

i'm with em-- nothing wrong with being worried. nothing at all. it's part and parcel of this mama thing.
love you.
and him.
and "ah duh DUH!" which i'm pretty gosh darn sure IS "i fell down."
