I always talk about how we waited for Boy Wonder to talk. Getting him to talk was difficult and mostly him just repeating back what was said to him.  His progress over the last two years regarding speech has been phenomenal. The little boy we were told would never communicate can talk . Is it conversational? Well no but he can tell us what he wants. He can say hi to people. In fact, it's one of his favorite things to do.

Every morning, I hear him fling his bedroom door open and he comes running down the hall. He bursts into my room and jumps in my bed with me. He presses his forehead against mine and says, "Hi!" and that is the very best way to start my day. Now if I could just get him to bring me coffee in bed. A girl can dream, can't she?
