For some reason, this week has really drug on. You would think that since Monday was a holiday, it would have gone a little faster, but no such luck. I can't believe my "little baby" will be 18 months old on Monday. As the old cliche goes "My how times flies by." Once you become a parent (or maybe just an adult) time does seem to pass much more quickly (contrary to the title of this post!! LOL). I remember as a child thinking how slow time passed and how it seemed summer lasted forever. Now I look back on certain events and think "holy cow that was 5 (or 10 or 15) years ago."
Next week will be somewhat of a busy one. Monday of course will be slow--we are REALLY slow on Mondays. Tuesday, Colton has his "meet and greet" with EI. I am still not sure if he needs it or not, but I thought it would be good to get an "outside"opinion. It can't really hurt anyway. I think he is pretty smart in logic and cause and effect type of situations. He has great hand and eye coordination and I don't think he is developmentally slow--he just doesn't talk. He says a couple words, but I know he should be saying more. Yes, every child is different and they all develop and do things on their own time, but I still just want to get that second opinion. He can recognize certain things, stacks coasters (he prefers those to blocks!!), says about 6 or 7 animal sounds, says about 7 words and can follow direction. You know that mothers always worry about their kids.
