JD’s 18 month check up went well. He is still off the charts for his height and a skinny kid. Every thing seems to be going according to the guidelines they have for development, with the exception of his speech. He vocalizes a lot but words aren’t his “thing”. He will mimic the melody of what you are saying but he can’t say the actual words. I don’t know how else to describe it really. The only two words that are very distinguishable are “Dad” and “Mama”. He seems to comprehend most everything we say, but isn’t talking. I’m not too worried about it, but the doctor wants to have his hearing checked to make sure it’s ok.
Today he did have a breakthrough however. He figured out how to eat the middle from the oreo and leave the cookie part. To celebrate his new trick he sang me the Indiana Jones theme. 😉
