Quoting ♥ darah ♥:" Oh yeah, well she is not a mom so I don't expect her to understand much about your lifestyle or your ... [snip!] ... any of that. Rocco is behind with speech, but hey at least now you know to take him to therapy more often. ;-) Hope it helps."
thanks Darah :) & that makes me feel better about my friend's comments, you're right she isn't a mom so I guess she really doesn't know anything about it. & she is the type of person to say whatever is on her mind so she must not mean it in an offensive way... what kind of stuff is Dani not able to do that you've noticed ?
Quoting TantricLemons:" I know its just how Carlos deals, but it can he super frustrating. Sobcan everyone brushing you off. ... [snip!] ... knew how crazy smart that kid was. As a parent is has to be so frustrating to struggle to get answers. I am here for you <3"

My son just turned 4 and still doesn't say much. Also what he does say only his Dad and I can understand. He does know some sign language though so that helps.
I saw Target had a few packs of flash cards in the See Spot Save area for $1

thanks !! I will have to go over there. I got some from walmart but just one pack. how long did it take for Gavin to not get pissed off at you whenever you had him try to pronounce a sound/word ? :lol: Rocco glares at me
My son Levi is 41/2 and speaks at a 2 year level. At 3 he was at an 18 month level. So he's progressing some but very slowly. He repeats a lot and knows what the sentences mean, can use them correctly but can't come up with sentences on his own. Well he can do basic ones like "Levi eat" or "Levi play". He doesn't know possessive words like "want" or "mine". He's just starting to grasp the concept of "me" and "I" but still prefers to refer to himself in the 3rd person. He's an expert at individual colors/animals/objects but can't understand when you refer to the as a whole. Example "Levi look at all the plants" and he will look puzzled until I pick out and identify each plant seperatly, like red flower, green leaves, stuff like that. He knows everything I say, can follow detailed instructions but cannot express much at all. He's completely on par in everything else, advanced in others but so far behind verbally. Its so frustrating at times. :(
