Alex is making leaps and bounds. I can tell that he is understanding his environment much more, and even making attempts at communication. No words, no signs, but he is trying to communicate. After being held constantly for over a week after his surgery, the little prince loves to sit with me, and being in my condition, I love to sit. He will spot me from across the room, and come over to me. I will say "what do you want?", and he will make the cutest little grunt noise, and then I say "do you want up?" and then he laughs, and grunts even louder. Why am I happy that my almost two year old is grunting you ask?
He is trying in the best way he knows how to let me know that he wants up, and I am thrilled. I'm not so sure I'm thrilled that he suddenly has become clingy to me right before I have his little baby, but its sweet just the same.
