We’ve been doing lots of praying for the boys when it comes to communication and expressive language. A few weeks back I felt God put it on my heart to pray a really specific prayer. The prayer was that the boys would have 4 words BY September. At the time I prayed that there was only 3 weeks left till September and no real words on the horizon.
A week or so ago I started asking the boys to copy the sounds and words I was saying…I started with just some basic vowel sounds and to my utter delight they started repeating the sounds back to me. This my friends was truly a first since we started this journey over a year ago.
Then me and the hubby thought we should start saying words for them to copy. So we started with “mom” and sure enough the boys started repeating the word back to us. Then we gave them the word “dad” and they said “dad”. Right now we have the following words that the boys are saying and working on saying:
We’re working on getting them to say juice, bread, more, and milk too.
Friends this is what we call breakthrough and we know without a shadow of a doubt that it is God moving in their lives. They started school 2 weeks ago too so that has been a great source of consistency for them and is placing them in an environment that stimulates and encourages language development and expression.
We just wanted to update you all and let you know this great news!
