Well, I've always hoped that dispite Jake's physical limitations with his cerebral palsy, that he wouldn't have any metal issues.
Even though his neonatal consultant said I should expect Jake to have learning difficlties, I've always strived to read to him, point things out, explain everything even though he might not understand what i was saying, I was going to do my best to make sure he would be the best he could be.
And it's difficult with CP because his speech may be impaired anyway, and it may just be that he doesn't WANT to talk to me, haha!
I'm a full time working mum so I don't really see him very much during the week so it can be hard to judge how well he is doing. I have to rely on other people to tell me what he has been up to.
But, the other weekend, there I am.... relaxing in bed... past 7am (Heaven!!!)... My husband brings in Jake to see me, and Jake says to me....
"Out of bed mama..."
. . . . . . OH MY GOD! Both mine and my husbands jaws dropped to the floor!
A whole sentance! I'm sooo proud! Hopefully this is a sign of things to come and that he won't be too cognitively delayed. :)
