No I'm not pronouncing my last name funny. I'm not naming mantras from the cardinal Ultima series. I'm actually speaking Andese.
It's no secret that Andy is running a bit behind in speech development. Chemotherapy slows things down. You remember us being worried about his not walking just before he started walking. His doctor wants him to be saying 2-3 word sentences within a month or we may be looking at speech therapy.
He points and grunts. He has a couple of words he says but usually when he wants something he just points and grunts or says, "Hey!" I'm trying to break him of it. I made him tell me he wanted a cup. Then I made him tell me he wanted milk. The result was "Cah leh!" (cup milk)
He's getting there. If he needs a bit of speech therapy, no biggie.
Don't sweat the small things. And nothing in life is big.
