the sweetest sound...

As you know, Noah has struggled with speech delays for the past year. At his age he should roughly have 250 words and be putting two and three word sentences together. However, he has spoken only about 60 words and has never put two words together... UNTIL today! I put him down for nap and about 15 minutes he comes out of his bedroom and declares, "I POO'D" and points to his tush!!! So this is a huge victory in his language development because he is communicating with me!!! The words he has are mostly objects that he identifies... he loves to name things but does not express his needs or wants besides the occassional 'drink' or 'cookie.' And this is huge regarding potty training too! We've been working on getting a consistent schedule down of going to the potty, flushing, and washing hands. He LOVES to wear his big boy underwear but is having a hard time 'holding it' in time to get to the toilet. He does not tell me he needs to go or has gone potty... he just drags me by the hand to the bathroom after the fact. Lately he has been taking off his diaper and throwing it in the trash if he pees in it. I am so excited that he verbally told me he went potty... yay! Now we just gotta get him to tell me BEFORE he goes!
