One amazing little boy!

We often wonder just how much is "getting through" to Nicholas since he rarely lets us know what is on his mind. This week we had some real surprises!

Mike was sitting on the couch watching tv when Nick came up to him and goes "Doing?" Mike was shocked and actually answered with "I am sitting on the couch. WHat are you doing?" Nick then went into the kitchen where he started playing with his Leap Frog Fridge Magnets where we got even more shocks! Nick was saying "Yeyow"(Yellow), and "Geen"(Green). Those were the colors of the letters he was playing with!!! He proceeded to put the little letter magnets in the toy and said some of them like "N", and "W" upon recognition. He also noticed that the "M" could be a "W" when turned upside down. I know this because he studied it, said "Doudle EEww" (Double u)and then turned the M the right way.

I believe his receptive language is also getting better as he seems to be understanding us when we explain things to him. It is just amazing to be a witness to these little daily miracles. He has been very cuddly lately, and has seemed to develop a slight sense of humor-he cracks up when he farts and we make a silly face.

Today when I met him at the bus after school, he looked at me, smiled, and said "Hi!" A few minutes later I asked for a hug, and he put his little head on my shoulder and wrapped his little arm around my neck. We hugged for about a minute or so, and then went back to playing. I cannot express how much these little miracles give me such joy. I am just tearing up with happiness right now!!

Way to go Nick!! You are such a big boy!
I swear by those fridge magnets. We have them too and Wes will sing along with the words and sounds. He can sometimes find the letter we ask for!
Keep up the good work. It's so great to hear about his progress.
