Phin is still freakishly non-talkative for a 2-year-old. He says the following:
Bye, Hi, Thank you, Cat, Bubble, Ball (and he can meow and bark when he sees a cat or dog)
He refuses to even try to make words it seems like. He will pull you over to his cup and place your hand on it, then walk over to the fridge, open it and point to the milk. We tell him the words for all these things a hundred times a day and he has never uttered them back to us even once. If you refuse to hand him the thing he is pointing at and just keep saying for example "Cup, Cup...Say Cup Phin" He will meltdown and lose it. Screaming, hitting himself with his hands, hitting his head on the floor/wall, throwing things, hitting you. I hate seeing him so frustrated.
We are waiting for a speech therapist to call us as our ped made a referral. I try not to get too worried but he has never called me Momma or called Chris Daddy. He won't even look at you most of the time if you speak to him. His hearing is perfect however.
I feel a sense of fear deep down and it is really getting to me. He is my world
