It's been a long time coming - maybe because he's the second child, maybe because the first child doesn't let anyone get a word in edgewise. Maybe because he's a boy, or maybe because he just hasn't felt the need to. Or maybe we don't give him the same attention that we gave Sophia. Who knows?
Slowly but surely, he's getting some words. Theo has never had problems communicating - he picked up signs easily and uses them often. He also is a determined little cuss, and will do anything he sets his mind to. We've had a speech therapist working with him for the past 6 months and she's been great. If nothing more, the hour we spend together each week is simply time just for him to practice and learn without his "spokesperson" Sophia.
Here's his recent word list:
Fee-A (Sophia) - this was new this week and so exciting!
I'm sure there are a few more, and he learns and practices more each day. We're getting there day by day, sound by sound. And we couldn't be prouder!
