Another one from the beach, you know it's my favorite place! I sure am missing it in this miserable drizzle we are having now.
I have to share about Evie , we're pretty much not worried about her speech any more. She is talking and communicating more and more almost to the point that it's not noticeable. You might just think she's quiet child if you didn't know her history. She's still behind but we don't worry about the future - we know she'll get there eventually. This is in part due to a book I read recently,
The Einstein Syndrome: Bright Children Who Talk Late
The Einstein Syndrome: Bright Children Who Talk Late by Thomas Sowell
It's pretty much Evie to the inch and it made me feel immensely better.
Here's a good example of what she's doing now : we were eating with Mom in a local restaurant the other night, completely empty except for us. She won't leave the server alone, talking and waving to her so she came over and talked to Evie for a little bit and then left. So were just eating and talking about what the server was doing, being Cinderella - sweeping the floor etc... and Evie is sitting there and says "I have pretty eyes!". What on earth? Where did that come from? I know she does, but it's not like anybody had told her that recently. It's kinda scary listening to all this stuff coming out that has been whirling around in that little brain for years.
Also, we have NO worries about Meri either. She's just talking her little head off. she even said "get down" today. I love her cute little baby voice too! Missed that with Miss E, which is sad but it's fun discovering it now!

Cute photo! And I can relate on the late-talking. My 3 yr old is just now starting to talk a lot and he can't pronounce many letters!
