Just one word…that’s all I want. Just one word that my boys can speak to us in their little voices. It doesn’t have to be mom…it doesn’t have to be dad…I’d even take a “no”! My heart aches for my boys to speak…Caden has had random words come and go over the last 2 years but nothing has stayed with him. Right now their words are grunts, noises, laughter, smiles, sometimes yelling but no real words. I don’t mean to be a bummer to anyone. It’s just that this mama’s heart is sad and pleading to God for breakthrough with our boys language. I read friends posting on facebook funny and/or cute things their kids are saying…and I’m just thinking why can’t my boys talk? Why can’t they just have one or two words to tell me they’re thirsty, where they hurt, or if they’re hungry. Most days I have stiff upper lip and I carry on because I know I have to. Right now it’s past midnight and I’m just being real. I know that I need to stop asking “why God?” and remember the blessings in front of me no matter how small. The other day Dylan signed “more” on his own for more snack and that was our little victory for the day. Caden tried potato chips for the first time and that was huge since he doesn’t eat very much variety. Today was a hard day…I was non stop with “STOP, NO, DON’T DO THAT” to my boys. Communication with them is frustrating and I desperately want breakthrough. I need God’s strength. He says in scripture that when we’re weak that His strength is made perfect. Well I’m feeling weak right now so God please fill me with your strength for this journey. Show me signs of hope, encourage my heart, fill this house with words from our little boys lips. That’s all I want right now.
