New Words!

Gwyneth has been slowly progressing with her speech development. Just this week, for the first time, she is able to say "mama" consistently. Tricia is very excited. Below is a video that highlights a few of the words that Gwyneth can say (there are more), both by sign and by mouth.

Wow. Well done Gwyneth. I love learning new signs, something I really want to learn is sign language. I only know bits of BSL, Auslan and Ameslan!

That's adorable. Well done, Miss Gwyneth!

As a speech therapist who works with early intervention, this gives me great thrill to see Gwyneth's progress. What a blessing your family is!

If that isn't joy personified, I don't know what is... I've been praying for your girl before she made her way into the world and whenever I see pictures/videos of her now, she always reminds me of how our awesome God answers prayers that to men seem unanswerable. Destiny

Oh, my heart! Gwyneth, you go!

Leanne said...

Absolutely AMAZING! Way to go, Gwyneth!! What a miracle she is!

scaryshari said...

I can't understand much of what she's saying, but it's clear SHE knows what she's saying! :) And of course you do too, but the best is that Gwyneth has two good ways to express herself: signs and words. She is beautiful. And smart. I hope she continues to make steady progress, and I bet it will get faster and faster as she matures. :D

That is AWESOME Gwyneth!! Wow, are you getting to be such the big girl!
thank you so much for the update, a lovely way to start my morning :))

Marsmile said...

Way to go, Gwyn! Nate, thank you for sharing! I've been wondering for a long time how Gwyn was progressing with her hearing aids and speech and sign. Looks like she is progressing as she should in her own pace! I'm proud of her and I'm glad you all are utilizing total communication (both sign and speech). :)

amanda said...

Awww-she's so precious, and it's so good to hear her sweet little voice!

Selina said...

Just beautiful. When she said mama, I just burst into tears. Tricia must just be loving it!

Twinkletoes said...

Congratulations! I am loving this. As a momma myself, my favorite, of course, was "Mama!" I love her inflection with that one too! Keep up the great work Gwyneth! We love getting snippets of watching you grow!

Jennifer said...

Oh goodness! Just when I think she can't get any cuter! Precious.

She's going to go to Baylor University (my alma mater) one day! She already does a great "Sic 'em Bears!"

My husband is profoundly deaf and we have a hard-of-hearing son. I love your blog, your photos and Gwenyth's progress!! What a doll. I'm in tears!

JAMBA said...

Thank you so much for the update!! I have a little girl about the same age as Gwyneth, so I love seeing/hearing how she's doing. She is precious and I loved the video.

Emily said...

Precious! Glad to see that Gwyneth is doing well! :)

Wen said...

Thanks for the update -- what a precious way to start my day. What a miracle. God is so good. I'd love to know how Tricia's doing too.

Skye said...

absolutely adorable! it's amazing to watch her grow up. thank you for sharing.

Julie said...

That is so awesome! I love to see her signs. We are right there with you on the speech path... it's long, but so worth the wait to hear those precious little words.

Tammy said...

Wow!! It is so exciting to see Gweneth growing up!! She is absolutely beautiful, happy, progressing wonderfully

Wallflower Confessions said...

Oh what a beautiful miracle! Music to my ears (and eyes!) My son has Dyspraxia which often causes speech delays. He has been in speech therapy since he was 3. He's 9 now and talks up a storm. There is still much to be done, but I can only empathize with you on how wonderful it is to hear your child speaking! Blessings to you three always!

I love checking in from time to time and seeing her progress. She is growing up so fast.
