I posted a while ago about Miles and my concerns about his speech development. As is usually the case my concerns were unfounded. In the space of a few weeks he has gone from having a handful of words to having lots of words and stringing them together. It really struck me this afternoon when we were in the garden and he shouted, 'look mummy, air plane up dere'.
Life is becoming so much easier now that we can communicate more freely. He is less frustrated and I'm less frazzled!
The greater concern now is his insistence upon choosing his own outfits. Worries about going out with a shopping trolley fade into insignificance when your two year old chooses to go into town dressed like this.
The lady serving in the Early Learning Centre stared for ages. In the end I explained to her that I was really happy about the situation. A friends mum brought the hat back from the Caribbean and up until very recently it had lots woolly dreadlocks hanging from it. They've dropped off now. It could have been worse.
Oh well, here's hoping that I'm posting in a few months time to say my worries about Hermione's reading have also been unfounded. She will be seven next month, perhaps she might develop a bit of enthusiasm then?
