This is Thomas' new favorite word!! Actually he will use the phrase "MORE PIZZA" and smile from ear to ear. As some of you know...I am neurotic about choking. I was this way with Jonathan and it has come again with Thomas. I cut everything up and make sure there is nothing that can be a choking hazard (in my opinion) within his grasp. I know...it makes me sound nuts but its the way I am!
In the past few months Thomas has started eating different things..his favorite being PIZZA! When we are at the grocery store and we pass the pizza boxes he yells "PIZZA", when he sees it anywhere he gets excited.
This evening, after our pizza party, Thomas ran into his bedroom and yelled "Zeba"...I looked over at him and noticed he was holding a zebra!!! I was SOOOOO excited!!!!! I said, over and over again, Yes Thomas~ a Zebra. Good Boy..it's a zebra. I went on and on about how a zebra is black and white, etc. He kept saying zebra after I would say it. I was on cloud nine! He went back to playing with his noah's ark. All of a sudden he picked up his elephant, ran over to me and yelled "Zeba"!!! What a smile I had on my face. I sat down with him and explained which one was the "zeba" and that the one in his hand was an elephant. He found it very funny and we both started laughing...what a great moment. I sat there with tears starting to well up in my eyes. It was such a great feeling to be sitting next to my little boy, talking and laughing, about something so goofy!
Thomas still has not said "HI Mommy". The cat, dog, Jonathan, Dad, Grandma...they all get "Hi(insert whomever he is talking to)" not Mommy!!! Jonathan's school bus even gets a "Hi Bus" Oh well! He had a MAJOR conversation with me yesterday. He had 2 of our address books in his hand and he comes into the living room and starts "talking" to me. I asked him if he was working and he said "yeah" and shook his head. We than had a few minute talk about working, how hard it is to carry all those books, what a great worker he is, etc. He would talk and move his hands all over the place..really getting into the conversation.
We still have the hearing test to look forward to in a few weeks. Hopefully we will be getting a date for a 2nd CI in the next couple of months. I will definitly keep you updated!!!
