His ears looked great and he's meeting all his developmental goals. Except one.
He's quite verbally delayed. I think the magic number for a two-year-old is 50-100 words and/or phrases. He's not quite there yet. He currently says "Daddy", "hi/bye" (same sound), and "ball" consistently. One day a long time ago he said "duck" and recently he said "buddy" and one day he sort of said "Miss Stacey". But that might be our babysitter's imagination at work.
Our pediatrician recommended speech therapy and so we went through the paperwork and meeting after meeting after meeting to qualify for BabyNet. We have another meeting scheduled for next week just to make sure he doesn't have anymore delays and then we are good to start speech therapy!
We are not concerned in the slightest. He's crazy smart. He's a great listener. He follows directions beautifully. He's the man. He just thinks saying words isn't all it's cracked up to be. And I'm cool with that for now. He'll get there.
