If you’re wondering how Cliff is doing with his speech, the answer is GREAT! He’s really talking and communicating. He still has his moments of gibberish, but hey, don’t we all?
The newest development in his language is the fact he says nothing quietly. Or remotely quietly. He has so much to say that he just pretty much yells it. And everything he says starts with an attention-grabbing: “Mom!” just to make sure I’m paying attention.
Add that shouting “Mom!” to all the other times I hear “Mom!” in a day, and well, I just may lose it. (Even as I type the word in this quiet corner, my ears are ringing at the thought of it.)
In honor of the screaming, I give you this version of Shout, sung by none other than Lulu. Yes, the same Lulu who sang (and starred in) rather sweetly “To Sir With Love.” (Or if you went to Tuna Tech, that would be “To STAR With Love.”
I know my son has the shouting down, now he just needs to learn the wiggle.
