Journaling: You are so much like your Daddy in so many ways, my son. Your Nana M kept so many notes and records from when Daddy was your age and so we have had fun seeing just how similar you are. You have mirrored your Daddy’s development nearly exactly - right down to your speech. Even your first babbles were similar ‘words’! You were not too keen to speak initially. You know something interesting? Your Daddy did not start speaking in sentences until he was 3 years old. But then he was reading by 4 and 3 years ahead when he started school! We knew you could speak because at times you would astound us with words and sentences we had never heard before but for the most part you would speak your own little language. You are so smart though and most of your first words were mostly to do with numbers and colours and the alphabet. Thankfully it seems you have Daddy’s maths gene and not Mummy’s - although this will make homework time interesting in years to come. I think you will be teaching me! Naturally we had quite a few appointments with your doctors just to make sure there was not something beyond your control holding your speech back. After half a dozen appointments the common advice was to give you time. You were ahead of your development in nearly every area other than speech and none of your doctors were ever worried that you wouldn’t catch up. Fast forward to now and you are more than catching up. These past 6+ months you are coming along in leaps and bounds. We hear you say things we never even knew you understood and I am left amazed every single day. I am loving the conversations we have and knowing what goes on in that little brain of yours. Just like Daddy, your brain is constantly ticking over. You both love to learn. You both love to understand. You both love to work things out for yourself. The two of you are so alike and that never fails to surprise me. You share Daddy’s same love of books and the two of read stories together every night before bed. You prefer Daddy’s storytelling to Mummy’s and will quite often take the book off me and give it your Dad. You love everything your Dad does and want to be just like him. And do you know what? You already are, beautiful boy - in so many ways! Journaling 20 May, 2014.
