"Da... ah!"

The other day, Isaiah came in here, handed me what he calls his magic fire truck shirt, and said "da...ah!" (that on).

January 9th, 2010, at age 3.5yo, Isaiah said his first unprompted 2-word sentence. ::happytears::

I haven't posted about his speech progress lately, because honestly there hasn't been a whole lot to report. Due to various reason, he's only had three 45m ST sessions in the past 2.5 months, so hopefully once we start having it regularly, that will help. At home, we've been doing lots of scripting (recently explained by Jen here: http://jenkrause.com/blog/2010/01/posting-an-old-post/ ). On his own, he just uses one word sentences. His vocabulary is increasing, but pronunciation is still poor for the most part- tends to use largely vowels and 1 syllable most of the time.

But I'm still SOOOO over the moon happy for "da... ah!". And while it might take a while to become regular, having said it once breaks that barrier and it'll be that much easier for future sentences to come through. I'm so proud of Isaiah. <3

That's awesome! May many more sentences be in his (and your) near future!

April, So happy!!! Thank you so much for sharing it with me. Another friend of the blog is back with Nancy Kaufman right now with her son. Nancy said the hardest part is just getting it going. Sounds like sweet boy is starting to break through. Yeah! Keep up the good work April.
Much Love, Jen

Yay Isaiah!! That is soooo exciting! I get crazy excited when one of my preschoolers does that in a therapy session. It will likely start happening a bit more regularly. Great step!

That is so awesome! My girls had speech problems (nothing like Isaiah's, though) and I remember each milestone, each bit of progress just floored me and made me sooo happy!!

I will never forget us driving home from the store one day and Hannah said, "SAM" and I just freaked out! I was like, "WHAT did you say!???" and she said it again, "Sam" and then everyone freaked out. She had never been able to say the "S" and it was always coming out "AM" or "Yam"...it was a great day! :0)
