Our little Princess J hadn't been much interested in talking immediately. She was a very good communicator, making up her own version of sign language to meet her needs. For example: If she were sitting in her booster chair and she wanted down, she intially would point to you, point to herself and then point to the floor as if to say...you get me down! LOL! It was hilarious the things she came up with....but this also worried us.....
She started working with a speech therapist just after her 2nd birthday. After a few months, she got a new speech therapist and we are so thankful for all the hard work Alex has put in with our Princess J. Alex is amazing! Princess J adores Alex! Over the last year, she has slowly begun to use words...in the last 2 months, we've had word and sentence EXPLOSION!
You all have probably seen the Family Guy commerical where Stewie is saying "mom" in as many different ways as he can be annoying...this is Princess J constantly....although it's not annoying...it's the most amazing sound I have heard in my life! Her little voice and even the word "no" is cherished beyond measure. Don't get me wrong...there are those days where it's a bit grating on the ears, but I will never tell her to be quiet...except maybe to use the "inside voice" rather than crowded stadium voice. LOL!
When you have a child who doesn't meet their milestones and may never talk like our beautiful Little J, every milestone they do meet is a miracle....every milestone your other children meet is just as miraculous! We definately won't be taking any of it for granted!
Here are some of our favorite multiple word Princess phrases:
Daddy Po Po!
I Love You!
Love You Too!
How Are You?
Wow Wow! (For Wow Wow Wubbzy)
Dora & Boots!
She can also count to 5 too!
So proud of her!
