Let your yeh be yes
Little Man has been having some issues with his speech. At his evaluation he was in the desired range for comprehension but had a significant delay in articulation. We are still waiting to hear if he is going to get speech therapy before he ages out of early intervention in a month and a half. All that to say that all of a sudden a few of his words are very clearly articulated. In the last three days he has gone from yeh to yes, da-ee to daddy, coo-ies to cookies, he can even say his sisters name very clearly.
Not only has his articulation improved, his sentence structure has as well. Tonight he said "Mommy, you get up. Follow me that way" When I asked him what he needed he gave me a cute shy little grin and said "More cookies please."
As he is able to communicate better with his words he is throwing fewer fits, not that he threw many to begin with.
He will be testing soon to see if he qualifies for preschool and services in the fall. He is doing really well in all areas though. There is still a slight gross motor delay, some sensory issues, and some fine motor delay but if you just looked at him you wouldn't even know about the ACC (Agenesis of the Corpus Callosum).
I just love my sweet Little Man. It makes my heart happy that he is progressing so well but there is always that little twinge that he is growing up. I just want to hold onto every moment that I can.
