I wuv dis kid. Wait let me correct myself, I love this kid!
Brooklyns smile and happy perspective on life is infectious! I love everything about him.
I recently had him tested for speech: results phonological pattern errors
This is a result of someone who has been baby talked to, too much. It will go away on its own, but we are going to get some extra help, and I need to stop the baby talk 🙁
I decided to share this because this all could have been corrected. I will be honest I babied my wittle Brooklynns. I thought he was my last, breastfed him the longest, and just held on to that little cheeky cherub for as long as I could. I mean do you blame me.
We found out at a early age he was both lip and tongue tied, and when he was little he would wear tap shoes everywhere we went. Dancing was how he expressed himself. A favorite from the get go this one. My little Fred Astaire.
But now I have to correct myself in order to help him grow. No more baby talk a spoon is not a boon it’s a “s”poon, a star is not a tar its a “s”tar!
I blame myself for trying to keep my last little boy, wittle.
It’s going to be an adjustment but we can do it. We got this 🙂 I got us into this I can get us out. Just don’t grow up too fast, learn the words, sure, but don’t lose the wiggly hips and never outgrow your Elvis costume!
interesting fact: phonological pattern errors has zero correlation to intelligence, I was told that today by the speech therapist, in case anyone reading this has a child in speech I thought this was a very important fact. Kids come into this world with their own set of unique traits, talents and gifts. Parenting isn’t about labeling kids or put them into boxes, it’s about helping and guiding them.
