Will Zeke always be Nonverbal?
June 22, 2010
I love my son dearly but hope he will gain the ability to speak one day and not remain nonverbal.
What a great day! The sun was shining. We all got some outside time.
We didn’t have any meltdowns just short frustration cries.
Well after Starbucks I gave the grandparents a call to
see if they had seen Zeke’s favorite train Gordon.
They indeed had and he was sitting on their table just waiting for us to retrieve him.
It was already 9:30 but they said to come on up to Castle Rock and
that they would be awake for a few minutes still.
We made the drive and when we got there they invited us in.
Well 20 mins turned into an hour but that’s no surprise. lol
Zeke was happy to have Gordon back in his grip but surprisingly
put him down for other metal cars and trucks. Wow!
We were talking about his diet and his improvements and
he said “Go go” in front of them. They were happy.
Then I asked him since he had a car in his hand what does the car say?
Then I said beep beep. Right away he said beep beep for the first time!
We were all amazed and happy and he said it again.
I told him good job and gave him a pat on the back. He went off to play more.
Each little step of progress feels so good and it’s so exciting! Can’t wait for more! 🙂
