My baby just turned three...being that there is no option for anymore babies this makes each birthday that passes for both the kiddos a little bit sad. They tell you as a youngster to enjoy every minute because it passes so quickly and they were right, but as an eager to grow teenager who really listens? Now watching the time fly so quickly and each milestone that passes it's mind-boggling. These past few months watching him grow have been such a joy though.
Beau has been going to speech for a little over eight months now. Within the past couple of months he has really started to gain confidence and let his personality shine which makes for some wonderfully entertaining conversations. A long time coming, but so worth the wait. As his mother it has been heartbreaking to not be able to piece together what he is trying to say. That's supposed to be how it works - the parents/siblings understand even if nobody else does, but he has struggled so much with making sounds that this was an impossibility for a long time. Now we've got it down, but family, friends and especially other kids still have a really hard time understanding, which can go to either extreme of him repeating himself until in tears or shrugging them off and doing something else. We will keep at it, but I am SO proud of the progress that he has made.
This fun day at the zoo resulted with "I'm going to go home, take a nap and go poopie on the potty"
My daughter is such a blessing to us all. So patient and understanding, she makes sure his little voice is heard and understood whenever she is around. They wouldn't be siblings without the bickering, but the play time is constant from the time she gets home from school until they go to bed. Here's to hoping they can maintain such a close relationship!
