I mentioned earlier that I have good news about my son. It’s great news. Wonderful news! It’s something wonderful and life-changing.
My seven year old nonverbal son now says “Mama.”
He looks me dead in the eyes and says “Mama”. He has actually been saying it for a couple of weeks, but now it’s rock-solid and consistent. He also says a variant of “Daddy”, “out”, “apple” and now we’re working on “love you”. He hums identifiable songs. He’s experimenting with his voice. I can’t even explain the joy that this gives me.
I just wanted to share that. 🙂
Your comments are very moving, and I’m happy to learn of this extremely special day. Thank you for sharing your joy with us.
That is awesome Sadie
*HUGS* : )
Excellent news, Mercedes. I’m really happy for you and your family.
This is wonderful news!
What an amazing improvement. You must be over the moon! 🙂
That’s fantastic news xo
OMG!!! Mercedes that’s flipping IN-CRED-ABLE!!!! My heart is all swelling happy for you.
Wonderful news for sure.
Mercedes, I am so glad you shared this news because I could not possibly be any happier for you (and your whole family). Your son sounds like he’s as cool as you are.
I’m smiling ear to ear for you!!!!!
Thank you so much, everybody! Yes, I’m absolutely over the moon. We started private speech therapy and it gave him that little extra nudge that he needed. I’d really like to post a video so that you guys can hear him sometime. I don’t think the word “miraculous” is too much of a stretch. It certainly feels like a miracle to me. 🙂
This is wonderful news! Thanks so much for sharing.
Merc, that’s wonderful.
HUZZAH! That’s flipping amazing! So happy for y’all.
Beautiful. That’s all.
Hurrah! I think that the word ‘miracle’ definitely DOES apply here.
So amazing! Keep us posted on his progress, M!
So, so, so cool.
… right so I was logged in with the wrong name. *sigh* Anyhow, it’s cool!
Absolutely fantastic! I’m so happy to hear your fabulous news.
Late to the party, but that is absolutely fantastic, Merc.
And it’s not a miracle; it’s love.
That is soo awesome!
Ooohhh! Congratulations Mercedes! Having their child say “Mama” or “Daddy” is something most parents take for granted; what a wonderful gift from the universe for you & your husband.
This is fantastic, Sadielady. Methinks you are a fantastic mother for that precious little one. Truly.
Precious, precious, precious.
Wonderful. You are such a good mommy.
Mercedes, that’s fantastic, beautiful news! Congratulations to you and your family.
