I feel like such a neglectful blogger!

We’re really in for it with this kid!

I am likely cursing myself but I’ll knock on wood and hope.

We’ve seen some really nice improvements with Monkey lately.  He’s becoming really vocal and attempting more and more to repeat words when asked.   He has also spontaneously used a couple of new words this week (water and Tigger.)  Typically, we will see the improvements weeks before the teacher and the assistants do but they’re . . . → Read More: I am likely cursing myself but I’ll knock on wood and hope.

Whiny McWhinerpants has moved in.

I want my Monkey back!  Is the incessant whining thing a delayed 3 or is it 4 knocking on the door?
