I wasn’t sure what Small Steps Amazing Achievement I was going to share with you today. Should it be one of Ethan’s milestones or should I look through the recent videos I have taken and share something from there?
Inspiration hit when I was reading the post that Premmeditations shared with us last week about Mr Boo starting to gain speech. I realised that Ethan has been babbling now for a year and I thought we should mark the occasion.
This is the video I posted last December to celebrate his achievement.
Before this point Ethan was very silent, he would laugh and share moments with us but there was no babbling. In true Ethan fashion he started his new talent in his first ever speech therapy appointment.
Since turning three Ethan has also found some words, some that we have lost along the way, but we have a firm favourite ‘Ready, Steady, GO!’
Over this past year we have noticed a real change in Ethan’s babbling, but we still have days when he is silent and not a sound is heard from him. As always I will keep everything crossed that Ethan’s babbling will turn into speech at some point, and one day I will be able to have a conversation, of some sort, with him.

Oh how lovely. This is a very good start and hope you get to have conversations very soon. It is good that he communicates well though (through NVC) too
He is doing amazingly well with PECS, it really has helped us :0)
I find myself dwelling on Mini’s speech so much-have to remember to celebrate the small stuff and not be constantly comparing her lack of words to her age.
I have to remember our kids are on their own timeline developmentally speaking, not on anyone elses!
I share your dreams for a proper conversation with my child-it will happen-when they decide it!
Thank you, yes they will do things when they are ready and not before :0)
You should be very proud. One day you won’t be able to shut him up 🙂
I really, really hope so :0)
He’s going to learn exactly the words he needs to – how wonderful to hear his little voice 🙂
Thank you :0)
Can echo MamaMummyMum’s comment!! Something in the aquarium and the book have certainly caught Ethan’s attention!
Thank you, yes he does love to read his books :0)

awww honey this is fantastic, he really has seemed to achieve so much in the last few months.

Thank you, yes turning three started a massive change. Lets hope it continues :0)
It’s wonderful Jane 🙂 I know nothing about these kind of things, but it seems to me to be very good progress and a big step in the right direction 🙂 I am keeping my fingers crossed for your conversation. x
Thank you, yes he has come so far over the past year, most of the change has been since I have given up work. I also think the support we have been getting since his diagnosis has really helped.
