News Flash!!!!

Out of the clear blue ... Matthew started singing ...

"twinko ... twinko ... litto ... tar!!" I almost passed out *big eyes* ... but first, I had to acknowledge that I knew what he was singing .... so I started singing it with him again. (He's never even SAID twinkle, little or star.)

I raced to the phone to call Mike ... he was able to hear him two more times...

Wow.. I am in shock.... it was SOOOO great!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I of course had to call his speech/feeding therapist Shay, to let her know .... she's a big part of why he's doing so well. Actually, all the girls from Nevada Early Intervention are the greatest and have worked wonders w/ Magoo .... Christy and Erin, too. We love them all. Kristina and Shirley have been a part of Matthew's care too, but are no longer his little helpers ~ thankfully we stay in touch. His services will end on his birthday, we will be so sad... these girls have been such a huge help to me and Matthew over the past 2 1/2 years.

*DEEP BREATH*

okay, enjoy the pics I posted below.....
