I haven't written you any letters in a few months and I feel horrible about it, really I do.
I want to share how much you have grown and how different you are and sometimes I get too caught up in what is happening to feel the need to write everything down because I'm sure I will remember but then things happen and I don't remember things like I thought I would and.... well, it's complicated.
Anyway, I want to share just how much you have changed in the last couple of months, mostly in the way that you communicate with us now. I taught you sign language a long time ago and thought it was great when you started signing and we could communicate that way but nothing compares to being able to hear you say 2 and 3 words at a time to tell me what you want, what you like and what you don't like. I'm going to try to have a running list here of what you are saying and most importantly what it sounds like to the rest of us because sometimes we wonder if you haven't been taking classes in other languages besides English.
