      He has 2 fingers on each hand that are webbed/fused together and it causes for some delays. He tried intertwining his fingers together one day and kept trying until he realized he could not--it nearly broke my heart. But, he will be having surgery late this summer and early fall on both hands to correct them so he will be able to reach those milestones.

      Thank you. I read everyday to him, talk to him while I am doing something (like chores) and explain what I am doing and when I am bathing him or changing him, etc. I explain what I am doing. We also sing and talk to him constantly. They told me all of this made him above average on this. I am sorry, I just like to brag on my baby. All mommies do. lol

        Great news! It sounds like your son is doing wonderful. Kids are so strong and they can overcome challenges. Your son sounds like everything will be great for him. Keep up the good work mama!
