Speech is progressing slowly with Kai. He has probably 20-30 words that mommy understands. He has over 50 signs to help fill in gaps and he is always able to get his point across. We still do speech weekly and he tries so hard. He just gets so excited and all the sounds run together. On his 3rd birthday his speech will be transferred over to the public school so pray this will be an easy transition for Kai. He has a hard time with big change.
I still can't believe that I am such a lucky mom! I have the best kids and an amazing supportive husband! At the end of the day when I lay down (exhausted) I know how blessed I am!

At our first meeting Kai didn't want Baba (daddy) and now they are great friends. He shared his cheerios with Mommy- good luck getting him share anything now ;) (part of being 2 with a sister that is crawling already). Kai carried a bottle everywhere we went and now he drinks from a big boy cup. He wore a bib 24/7 due to his drooling issues and once his palate was repaired we had no more problems. Last year Kai couldn't communicate more than pointing and gesturing. Now he has over 40 signs and 30 words (that we can understand- gibberish there are TONS more). Kai had to be stuck to Mommy everywhere I went, but he now loves going anywhere Daddy goes too.
Sometimes I really just can't believe that Kai is the same little boy that flew home with us a year ago- I guess in many ways he isn't. He is much more matured and nurtured. What a difference a year makes!
We love you Kai and we are so glad you are a part of our family!
