As I typed the title of this post I questioned the word first. It seems so weird! But we are having some firsts around here and they are fun. Grant has started to say ma ma! Yippee!! He doesn't say it spontaneously, but he does say it when I ask him who I am. Most of the time I also have to tell him to say ma ma, but he is saying it!!! Before ma ma the only sounds he made were ummmm, ohhhh etc, so we are excited to hear something new. He has been doing speech therapy for a few months now and has done some occasional babbling since starting. Our therapist is going to have Grant do a consult with the speech pathologist. We already do most of the things she shows us with him, so we're going to look into some doing something different. Hopefully it will help. He's a super smart little guy and doesn't have much trouble communicating his wants and needs to us. He's so funny now that I can't wait to hear what he is thinking. I'm sure we will be laughing our heads off at the stuff he says. Scotty's speech really took off when he turned 2, so we're wondering if Grant will be the same. He'll be 2 in 2 weeks- hard to believe!
