I know it's been years...

I know any one who glances over will question why it's been about 3 1/2 years since I've posted about my son? Well, honestly I can say time flies when you're enjoying life. My son is almost 4 years old. I cannot express how quickly his birth came and went - and now he's 4, very independent and in developmental preschool since he has been speech delayed. He's been ahead in everything but speech. He started speech therapy about 2 1/2 years old which did not help much but when he hit developmental preschool at 3 years of age he just soared. He's funny and quickly becoming a riot. He does not understand everything 100% but is humorous with comments. This was our conversation a few days ago:

Me: Daddy pees more than a horse!
Andrew: Horses pee in the grass
Me (laughing): You should tell daddy that
Andrew (with a funny tone): Nooooo I won't tell him to do that!

LOL. I know it isn't much to some people - but to me it's a lot. For years we had him not say much of anything. Sentences came later on in his life which meant he couldn't even tell us what was bothering him, when he needed something, or how he was feeling. To a mother who has a child very delayed everything means so much.

Since he was speech delayed potty training never really happened. Now we're working on it. Every 1-2 hours we'll nag him, "you need to go potty? Let's go!" It's obsessive but he still refuses to tell us when he needs to go potty. Most of the times he'll wait until we've discovered it. He hasn't done #2 yet in the potty - but if we can focus on one thing at a time we'll be fine.

I'll make additions to this in time. I've just been enjoying him a lot. I am thankful he's in school though - he soared.
