R’s VB therapist has asked that I make a list of all the words he has to see how to modify his therapy
She asked me this last year as well
How easy it was last year!
Easy and painful to see his handful of words
• Sheep Mother
• Sheep Father
And the ubiquitous more and all done
That was it !
As I type in R’s words today a year later, I see the word tally slowly increase
I try to picture his day in my head to jog my memory for all the words he says when he wakes up , when we play, at meal times etc
Yes, he is autistic
Yes, he has severe Apraxia
But now he also has more than one thousand words
This from a child who not too long ago – we thought would never speak
Some days, I feel I am in the presence of a miracle unfolding
I picture our bed time routine to finish up the document
And I end appropriately with R’s simple bedtime prayer “Fank you Dod”
Yes, thank you god
Thank you so very much
Yes, thank you God!!!
1,000 words!!!!! Truly a miracle!!!
I'm jumping for joy right now.
I'm weepy over this.
I hope one of those words is "weepy" because that's what this post made me! So beautiful to read about the leap in language. This gives me great hope. :-)
Yes-a miracle unfolding..lovely way of putting it...:)
Wow! What tremendous progress! A miracle that you and your husband had a huge hand in making happen. So wonderful to read this!
I never doubted that he would speak. I always knew he would.
Nice way to end my day with tears in my eyes from this simple and beautiful post.
1,000 words in a year!! I'm also weepy. That is just spectacular. Thank you God and bless you all.
AWESOME!!! That is so great. It's a miracle, but a miracle that you'v clearly worked your butt off to make happen...
I'm teary. That's was wonderful to read.
yay!!! Happy tears! :)
I am so happy to read this this is huge :)
Fank you, K. ;)
Wow...what a difference a year has made! All of you have worked so hard for this...R...and he has come so far! WTG R!!!
One amazing boy, two amazing parents. Good work, all of you!!
Oh yes, mama, we are most certainly in the presence of a miracle unfolding. <3
Wow, a miracle unfolding indeed!! What a blessing to hear of his progress! So excited for R, and for you and your hubby :).
