You could say she got the gene for stubbornness.
To my knowledge she still isn't talking that much at school.
When school began we increased the girls dose of curcumin and are defintely seeing a language explosion from both girls.
Yesterday as I was cleaning up the breakfast table I heard a sweet little voice calling from the living room. "Mommy, will you come play with me?"
Even though I know Alayna is totally capable of using this kind of sentence structure to request something this particular sentence took me off guard. My little girl was for the first time ever formally requesting me to come play with her.
It was such a happy moment for me. I even had tears in my eyes when I told Jason about it at lunch.
The dishes would have to wait, my girl was using great language to beckon me. After we played a while we practiced her using this sentence to ask her school friends to play. I hope it works.
Having children with special needs makes us appreciate every tiny milestone.
We celebrate them all.
Way to go, Alayna!
