My son, for the first time in his short life, can answer (unprompted) the questions, "What is your name?" and, "How old are you?" Could a stranger understand his answers? Probably not. But I know what he is saying. And then, at bedtime, he finished the last word of 2 sentences in his bedtime book! My eyes started to tear up. Really, I thought that I was going to lose it and start crying right there! I told him that mommy was SO happy, and then we went through his nightly routine of pairing different blankets until we found just the right combination so that he could sleep. OCD? Maybe. Wonderfully adorable? YES! Very smart? Definitely.
