I think I can finally put to rest my fear that Matthew won't talk. Lately, he has done nothing but talk! I think the issue has gone from being non-verbal (or low verbal) to very verbal with an articulation issue. Darren and I can understand the majority of what he tries to say. Teachers and friends likely struggle a little more. Strangers probably wonder 'what?'.
I want car in driveway. I want car. I want underwear. I want to eat. School. I want window down. I want. I want. I want. Home? Look Mommy. Look Aly. Hi Jack. Hi Daddy. Potty. Shhh...hide. Jump. Shoe. I want watch tv. Please. No, Mickey. Padme! No! Wake up. I want yogurt. I want milk. I want water. Banana. Work? I dry. Thank you.
Read the previous paragraph, aloud, fast, 3 times. That is Matthew-- all day long. We love it and it is driving us a bit batty at the same time.
