Mom (Danie) to Adam (9-4-03) & Nate (3-7-07) Nate was diagnosed with silent AR at 2 months old. He was on neocate, prevacid 30mg per day and couldn't start solids till he was almost 8 months old. He started cow's milk at 14 months and is currently off all meds!! So far so good :) PIC: Disney trip 2008. Nate didn't know Piglet was there, he didn't like the characters too much.
Well, I had the eval appt for last week. Nate got sick so I canceled (he is so back to his normal silly self now, lol) I have to say...he has been babbleing soooo much this weekend. He will say ADAM plain as day....and DAT (for "that") I have never got to hear babbleing before...just from other kids. Adam NEVER did it...he was a late talker and just skipped it all together. Guys, I am still going to let them give him the eval...but I know he is going to be ok. I am teary eyed right now as I type...there is NOTHING sweeter than hearing your lo say their first words...or attempting to.

Thanks for letting me BABBLE, LOL :) Off to bed...hope you all get some sleep tonight!!

Does he say mama or daddy? Braddy has started preaching when he talks. You cant understand him but he gives it to you. He can say now mama, dada, nana, thank you, and he said a word yesterday but I have mommy brain right now. I am waiting for the approval from blue cross to start theirs. It doesn't hurt to get the eval so you can rest your mind. IMO

Maggie is now 3 years old and reflux free (knock on wood). I still check in some to see how everybody is doing :) Hugs to all!
Really, he says Adam? How sweet! I call Morgan Mooty Moot sometimes (in a fast way that you don't really hear the "t"). Mags says "moo moo". Oh Maggie has the same cup he's holding in the pic.

Sharon, Mom to Elyse, 17 mos (15 mos adjusted-preemie). Zantac/Elecare. History of: Respiratory Distress Syndrome with ventilation/CPAP/cannula, tpn, n/g tube, PDA, jaundice, apnea, bradycardia/tachycardia, severe anemia, blood transfusion, reflux, Sandifer's Syndrome, intestinal malrotation, hemangiomas, MSPI, feeding issues. ICU inpatient 53 days! 2 surgeries, 2 UGIs, barium enema, pH probe, endoscopy. Developmentally on target now! PIC: Yobaby Beard
Glad to hear your mind is at ease. I hope having the eval done will put it to rest for you.....or get him help if he does in fact need it! Elyse has said several words but she says them once or twice and then we don't hear them again (anyone who is thinking "that's a characteristic of autism", yes it is, but she is clearly NOT least not yet!). This morning I was doing a knob puzzle with her and she started imitating "meow" for the cat! "mow,mow" she said :)

Sharon, Mags is the same way. She's doing much better but for a long time, she'd say something and then it'd never come out again.

Jennifer - 1st time mom. Lauren (6/1/07) diagnosed 9/07 with GER at 3 1/2 months. Prevacid 7.5 mg in the am. Currently drinking whole milk and eating great!!
No longer aspirating! Yippee!
Picture: Why would Lauren play with the hundreds of dollars worth of toys scattered in my living room?!?! When she could play in a box! Estimated move date: Oct. 3rd!
This is great news! It is wonderful, isn't it? Lauren will try and imitate just about anything we say now. She even says broccoli pretty good -- it's her favorite food and she eats it at least once a day... Yeah for Nate!
