Don't get me wrong, he is making progress, big progress. He will mimic certain sounds. If I say Woo-hoo! He comes back with oo-oooo! And if I change to Aahhhh! He will change to Aahhh! If he doesn't all I have to do is remind him what I said and you can see the wheels turn and he changes his noise to the correct one. He is understanding! He is hearing the differences! He just can't make it all work together.
Most days I feel like it is all I think about. I cry about it at least once a week. I want everything for JT but I just don't have control of this. No matter how hard I try I can't force the words out. His younger cousins are passing him up completely now. They did with crawling and walking and now talking. It tears me apart.
This has been the first thing I am unsure of. I knew everything else would come. I even knew about when he was getting close to doing it. I don't feel like we are close. I don't even know if I see it on the horizon. I am beat.
