Thankful for today

Today, when our morning rest time was over, Isaac sat up in his bed, smiled at me, and exclaimed, "Hewo, Mommy!"

Today, as I was getting lunch ready, Isaac picked up a plate from the counter, pointed at the picture on it, and asked me, "Weez dat?" I told him it was Winnie the Pooh, and he proceeded ask what was on each of the other plates.

Today, as we were finishing lunch, Isaac looked at me and said, "Miss Stephie!" (his speech therapist). I replied, "Yes, you're going to see her at school today. And you'll see Miss Jen and ... who else are you going to see at school?" Isaac beamed and (correctly) answered, "Miss Kawen!"

Today, as I buckled in the kids for the ride to school, Isaac looked at the temporarily vacant space next to our van and asked, "Where za car?"

All things that the parents of most 3-year-olds take for granted. All things that made today a very good day ... because Isaac said them.


Today we are thankful for answered prayers!

There is such deep sweetness in the words of our little boys. Something so simple is such a huge milestone for kiddos overcoming speech delays. Besos.

Are you on Facebook or an email or a way I can ask you some more personal questions regarding Isaac, as I have a child with some issues and I'm wondering if we could speak more. Thanks! And this is WONDERFUL news!!

What a lot of talking for such a short span of time! Congrats! So if you had to guess, do you think these improvements are due to his speech therapy or his developmental preschool class? (Or both?)


This is such a sweet entry. And Isaac is growing into such a handsome little man!

Tukie, I am sure that his increased communication is due to a combination of his speech therapy and also just the fact that he is 3 years old now. I have heard that a lot happens in kids' brains around this time. :) Regardless, we are praising God for every new word!

Sometimes having a child with special needs is such a blessing because it makes you stop and appreciate the "small" miracles that normally you would never even notice. Every word is an answered prayer and you are always present for the miraculous.

I hadn't been by in a couple of months so I thought I would drop by and get caught up. :) It's really good to hear Isaac is doing so well.
