I forgot to mention AJ's counting in the last post. He started out just chanting the numbers that he's heard a zillion times ...
"un, two, ree...."
And he'd point randomly at his shirt, as if he were counting something. Then he progressed to ...
"un, two, ree, or, .... ix ...."
I think he skipped five.
Now Zack has started saying numbers! I heard him this morning walking down the stairs, just like his brother has been doing ....
"un, two, ree ..."
I asked him to say "one, two three" for me later, and he wasn't having anything to do with me. He was pretty focused on his chocolate milk and the first of many Diego episodes we'll watch today. But I heard it, and I'll keep requesting it. And I'll tell his therapists I heard him, so they can start working on counting!
