One of my greatest areas of concern for Christina is how slowly she is learning to speak. Last Saturday at the pool, we met two little boys her age with Down syndrome'; who could carry on quite a conversation, and another who didn't utter a word. As my daughters pointed out, she is exactly in between them.
Bella was playing hide-and-seek with Christina yesterday, and she counted to ten perfectly, then said, "ready or not, here I come!"
With Christina it's all or nothing. She waits to speak until she can assemble the entire sentence, then enjoys the look of surprise on our faces!
