Thank you all for your comments, phone calls and emails regarding my last post on Maddyx's early intervention. We've since had one therapy session and he did great. It was mostly interactive play, but he was all about using his words and he even put two words together for the very first time! He said "more ball"....it was just too cute. It was really helpful to see how the therapist played with him, and how she negotiated words through play. I've since learned that I need to give him a little extra push to use his words. And when I do, he does! Food is the easiest negotiation tool. As you all know, our boy loves his food! He even tried to say cracker for the very first time tonight. I was shocked! And yesterday it was cheese. I can't even begin to explain how much progress he's made in this last month. It's blowing my mind. And it's so amazing to watch.
It's like he's starting to blossom. He shows us each and every day just how blessed we are. And each and every day we fall more and more in love with him.
