Every child develops at their own rate, and Matthew is no different. For many months, he's been somewhat verbal, saying words like "Mama," "Dada," or "ball," but not necessarily consistently associating them with people or objects. As a typical mother, I worried that my son wouldn't turn the corner and become even more verbal. Most parents that I've talked to told me that their children seemed to flip a switch and suddenly started using more and more words each day and breaking through a communication barrier.
Well, Matthew flipped that switch recently. Literally over night, he went from having a few words to mirroring every word and sound that people made around him. It has been so much fun to watch him learn and grow, and to have him be able to communicate with us about his wants and needs!
