He's been in speech therapy for almost two years now, and for a long time he would not speak on his own--he would only repeat things that we'd say.
Then one day, I sneezed.
And he said three words that were music to my ears...
"Bless You Mommy!"
That brought tears to my eyes!
Such a simple statement, yet it meant so much to me.
And that was just the beginning of his progress. He still has a lot to catch up on, but the progress he has made thus far is impressive, and it was such a special moment that I will never forget.
Do you have a special moment that sticks out in your mind?
