And as usual, 'they' were right.
Kingsley is starting to talk. Just like that. Out of nowhere. His vocabulary has pretty much tripled if not quadrupled in the last two weeks. Now, given that he had a vocabulary of about 5 words, it's not like he's caught up or anything, but in time.
He's babbling, he's making new sounds, he's imitating, he's labeling and requesting (manding folks, I have manding!!).
he also got a rockstar hairdo this week
Naturally, we start speech therapy next Wednesday.
I think this is it. He's mastered sitting and crawling and transferring from crawling to sitting. He's a pro at rolling and steering and every other gross motor skill he can tackle right now. The kid is doing chin ups for Pete's sake. He's playing and colouring and eating (sort of). He's kind of run out of things to master, other than the talking. So, talking he is.
*sigh of relief*
Once again, I reference one of my fabulous mentors who has never yet been wrong. :) http://themclellands.blogspot.ca/2011/01/taking-scenic-route.html
