When she's home from school like on weekends, we sleep in till like 9ish, get up I give them cereal, she plays for a while by herself, then we do showers around 11:00, then she either wants to play legos, or color, its hard cuz I have a 1 year old and if its my weekend, my 6 year olds home too, so I'm back and forth playing referee... lol we do lunch around 12:30, then naps *hopefully* from 1-2:30ish... that's when I get laundry going and play words with friends... haha
By 3:00ish they are up and they go outside I get dinner started... then daddy gets home and I clock out -______-

She only talked a bit when she was just two short simple sentences like "chick dinner night" chicken for dinner tonight. And by the end of her 2 year old year she was beginning to read and write

Jade was really quiet when she 1st turned 2, my husband used to say abcs and count to 30 till he was blue in the face... she was almost 2 and half and we snuck up on her in her room singing them lol, so u never know, he prob knows more than u think lol, even now she'll be 3 next month and she gets shy and shuts down when u notice she's singing or dancing...

<blockquote><b>Quoting Shhh Mommy*:</b>" Lol aww that is so cute. I know he can say words, but sometime he doesnt want to. Its like he is being lazy lol. He does have sensory problems so I am thinking that has a role in it also."</blockquote>




Awww, my nephew is 3 and half and says maybe 5 words now, up till he was 3 he could only say ball, poor guy, he would just follow along with the other kids till out of no where he would find a ball, and that made his day haha,
My oldest has adhd and odd sooo I'm on other end of spectrum, where I have no idea what's going to come out of his mouth... makes life interesing I guess lol

<blockquote><b>Quoting Shhh Mommy*:</b>" Oh wow that is awesome. My son is in speech therapy and OT for him not talking and a few other things. So hopefully it will change."</blockquote>



She has developed a stutter recently but I've just left it and ask her to slowly repeat what I am saying and it has improved.



She is extremely clever. She asked to be taught to read and both her daycare n I teach her bits when she asks. I would never have tried to teach her at 2 years old otherwise

<blockquote><b>Quoting Shhh Mommy*:</b>" Yeah I would of never thought to teach him to read so young lol. She does sound very smart and that ...

Be patient. Talk to him lots and encourage him to talk to you and repeat certain things he says. Like if he points at something he wants try to get him to say what it is or ask for it with his words instead o just giving it to him.



She can only write a little. Like her name and her dogs names etc

Deans 6, now he just ignores me... and I'm still playing guessing game lol, Jade will be 3 and she will tell u repeatedly what she wants... my lil one is 14 months, and he is very quiet... but 9 times outta 10 he usually wants a snack... -_____- just keep talking to him, even if ur washing dishes tell him what ur doing... I narrate everything lol,
