I've waited so long to share

Abbey has been able to talk for almost a year and she speaks very clearly for the most part. We are starting to have regular conversations with her so that she feels included and can learn to communicate better with others like her teachers at school. So, I'm so excited to be able to share our conversation on the ride the school.

I was driving along and Abbey hadn't said very much, just looking out the window enjoying the ride. When all of the sudden...

Abbey: Is that singin', mommy?

Me: What baby?

Abbey: Is that singin?

Me: That's Keith Urban singing on the radio.

Abbey: Is Feff Urba singin' on the rayio.

Me: Do you like this song?

Abbey: Yeah!

She sticks a thumb in her mouth and with the other hand starts tapping the beat on her knee and bouncing in her car seat. I just laughed.
