amazing words!

Kevin brought tears of joy to my eyes twice today! Maybe I am just emotional because it is my other son's 4th birthday tomorrow (and I feel like he is getting to be such a big boy!), but Kevin's articulation just amazed me today. We were at the haircut place getting my son's haircut and they give lollypops to the kids. Kevin picked his out of the lollypop tree, walked up to me and said 'lollypah'. I asked him to repeat it and he said it exactly the same 'lollypah'. I have never heard an 'L' sound from him before, but he concentrated on it and you could tell he was trying so hard to make it. His tongue was sticking out between his teeth as he said it. My eyes welled up right then and there. I had no idea he knew how to make that sound!!!

Then, to top it off, later today, we were going for a walk with the boys in the wagon. We pretended it was a train and I said 'all aboard' just like a conductor says it. My older son mimicked me and then Kevin said it completely clearly, 'All Aboard'. I asked him to repeat it many times because it was sooooo clear, and those sounds and syllables just rolled off of his tongue. What a fun day!

Now I have to go get ready for the big birthday boys day tomorrow!!!
