MsPlucky :  Hey lady! Yay! Glad we’re on the TTC train at the same time again. πŸ™‚ He is doing really well. Graduated from neurology and just a few lingering issues with language and gross motor skills, but he’s learning to compensate really well. We’re so proud of him! I have been ready to TTC again since my first MC, so I’m glad we’re finaly there. I know what you mean about not wanting to split your time though. I get passingly sad thinking about how many less cuddles we’ll have once there’s a new baby. But TTC is not straightforward for me so I’m trying to look at the process as more time with DS while he’s little. How is your little guy? Are you charting this time around? You should come join the charters of the hive board if you are πŸ™‚

KittyYogi :  That’s great you’re getting so much early intervention! And that his delays are likely to be delays instead of permanent. He is such a strong little one ❀️ We actually just had one session with the SLP so far. They said he was about 7 months behind, but because of his age there’s not much to do but wait and practice as much language as possible at home. He’s 18 months now and says about 4-6 words, but isn’t picking up any more so we’re likely to have to see the SLP again soon. What kind of delay does Tristian have? Gawain can understand everything but was throwing major fits when we couldn’t understand what he was babbling about. We’ve found that st this age he is picking up 1-2 signs a day so he’s got a language/speech delay, not necessarily a communication one. He even signs 2 word phrases st us. So we may be looking at learning ASL as a family if his delay persists.

KittyYogi :  That’s exactly what we were dealing with at 10 months! Vowels and screeching but no babbling. He continued to be behind on the babbling but slowly picked it up over the next couple of months. Hopefully your SLP will be able to help you with strategies! I know what you mean about wanting to do whatever you can to help. It’s really frustrating not knowing how to help or when to worry about delays. I’m so thankful for early intervention services. 

They haven’t said why he might be having specifically a speech delay yet. If he hasn’t progressed at all over the next 2-4 months we’ll be going back for a session with the SLP, so I’m definitely keeping a list of questions like that to ask her.
