On Sunday we went to my brother’s house to celebrate my nephew and my dad’s birthday.
The most amazing thing happened.
We were sitting around watching my dad open a couple presents and Mateo walks right up to my dad and says “Happy Birthday, Pop”.
We look at each other in amazement. No one prompted him at all. He just said it from his heart, “Happy Birthday Pop!”.
It was the best birthday present he could of asked for.
Today is my dad’s birthday and I want to wish him a Happy Birthday! I know Teo gave him a present to last a life time.
I don’t think most people can understand- most children just start talking. Mateo repeats most things, will answer when you force him to some of the time. He runs around repeating shows and songs, this is called Echolalia, and the majority of his chatter. Speech doesn’t come naturally to him, so for us it’s amazing and wonderful when it happens.
