Not Ready To Talk

by Aundrea

(Oregon)

My son refused to speak. We knew that he could as he had already said his first words and would babble as a smaller baby. For some reason he decided he didn’t want to talk. His Grandma taught him some basic signs using baby signing time. He could finally communicate with me!! He did eventually talk and when he did it was full and thought out sentences. Being able to communicate until he was ready to speak made it less stressful for both of us.
