He called me MAMA!

My son is 32 months old and has been diagnosed with a speech delay.

He has said the word Mama but never in conjuction about me or to me.


Today he ran to me yelling MAMA! And yesterday he pointed to me and said MAMA!


I wanted to cry. It took me three years to have him, and almost three years to be called mama. Finally.


I am so happy.

That's wonderful! I know what that is like, my ds was 3 before he said mama. I cried. Heck, I cried when he said goat one time, lol. Language is so much more special when you have a speech delayed child. Congrats to you and your son!

ohh isn't that the truth!!!!! I just took it for granted that my son would talk. I mean, who doesn't? But I kept waiting and waiting and hearing other children his age talking away.... It has been difficult as anyone who has gone through this knows. I'm hoping this is a real breakthrough.



Thanks to everyone, for sharing my joy.
