My DC don't eat much dairy or drink any cows milk (just rice or soy milk) because of allergies. *sigh* Tomorrow is going to be a fun day.
I know what you mean about what the doctor said to you. When DD was in her *forth* month of nursing hell, I would always get the "Have you called LLL?" and have to say that, in fact, I was a Leader! A lot of good it did me!
But at least I knew enough to hang in there.
Thank you SO much for offering to help!
I think this would be great, just things I can do at home with her, so DH doesn't think I am totally over reacting for taking her someplace.
Here are a lot of words she mispronounces:
help= hup (like up)
daddy= da-eeee (just like daddy without the second d, although she used to say it right a long time ago)
then a lot of words she says fine, minus the first sound:
But, when she says 'oot' for foot and I tell her to say 'ffffff' she does say 'ffffff.' She just will not put the 'ffffff' and 'oot' together.
: This is what really has me confused!
Something else she does is mouth sounds without making any noise. Like if we want her to say something complicated, she will just mouth it back to us. Like "I love you"- she will move her mouth for the "i love" then say 'ehh oooo' very softly. But she *can* say 'eye.' She just never says 'I,' if that makes sense.
She does have a lot of things she can say very well- here, no, mommy, baby, mine, bye, hey, go, 'kay, hot, guy, ball, puppy, house, out...
Anyway, for sounds- we went thru the alphabet and she was only really hung up on the sounds for d (she makes the sound for g), e, j (she makes the sound for g), l, r, v, w, and y. She said 'sssss' for Zzzzzz.
She can say all the letters themselves rather well, except for h, j, w (too long), and says 'weee' for Z.
I really appreciate you taking the time to do this! The only 'profesionial' thing I have done so far is- a lady at church who works with deaf children regularly, told me to extremely exagerate my lips and draw out sounds when I speak to her. So, using her example, I looked at DD and said "Jeeeeeeeee-sssssuuuuuussssss." and DD looked at me and said "Jesus!" but it has not worked much since.
Sorry for writting a book!
Thank you for your suggestions. I will definitely try them!
I think if it goes on much longer, I will get her re-checked. But now, it is a 'thing' between DH and I, and I have to admit- he is the one who is always right.
: What can I say? He just is more logical than I am, and I get caught up with my emotions, and he truely feels she is perfectly fine.
If it ever appeared she was getting stressed out by it, or she stopped improving, I would not hesitate to get her checked out no matter what DH thought.
Maybe that is a sign she moved by me?
If I decide to take DD somewhere, I will definitely get her name. She sounds really good. Thank you!
