Their House is a Museum

 Do I even need to write a caption for this?  We tried out the the Boston Children's Museum, ($1 on Friday nights!), Link had a ball, and we'll definitely go back sometime soon!

Lincoln is STILL not talking, just vocalizing a lot of crazy sounds.  His favorite nonsense words sound a LOT like choice four letter works like SH-- and F--- when he yells them out loud (yikes!).  Scares me every time.  We have two early intervention girls coming every week to work with him, and put him on the waiting list for an intervention play group that would also be once a week.  The little dear gets so frustrated trying to tell us things!  Oh to hear him say "mama".  That will be the day!

I totally empathize with you on the talking thing. It took Chase forever, probably about 2 years and 8 months. It is only in these last 4 months he really even started saying anything that made sense. He's made up a lot of ground in a short time though. You'd hardly know he wasn't talking even 6 months ago. He speaks in full sentences, uses correct grammar most of the time and is getting better at being fully understood everyday. Once he started talking, he and I have been getting along a lot better! I kept going back and forth on whether or not to get him speech therapy, but I kept hesitating just because of what I know about Brett speaking later, etc. It wouldn't have been free for us, so I was dragging my feet a little. It has turned out to not be necessary for him, but it was frustrating for a while. I am sure some intervention will be fun and helpful, but it might just be part of the genes and he'll catch right up in the next year or so. Good luck!

These are very comforting words, Sabrina, thank you!
