His voice is music to my ears!

Xander has been such a late bloomer, he only JUST started talking this summer at 4 years old. I can't tell you how I worried, w/ already having an autistic child...although he showed no other symptoms and seemed to understand and follow commands unlike my older son, it's impossible for a mother not to worry when something isn't quite right with their child. Now that he is starting to talk hearing him is music to this mama's ears. Today he proudly showed me his homework, and told me how you make a D, w/ a stick down then you go back up and you make a big fat belly! I said who taught you that, he said My cheacher (teacher) taught me that, that's what her said. It's so neat to hear him speak in sentences and sponanously tell me about his day (something Isaiah still rarely can do). I told him how great his homework looked, and what a good job he did, to which he replied THANKS MOM! and gave me a great big hug...With Tierra I really took having a conversation with her for granted, it's such a special thing to be able to do with your child, I really treasure it now.

I know how you feel with the speach delay thing. My son took forever to talk and then I was the only one who could understand him. He has been in speech class since he was 3 or 4. He is 7 now and still goes to speech during school hours. Some sounds he still has trouble with. And to this day I dont know why. But he get progressively better all the time. I"m glad your son is improving!:)

For some reason, the comment I left here yesterday didn't show up. WTG Xander! I know what it's like to want to hear words from them - that's wonderful!
