The One with the 42 Month Old Who Is Thriving

I haven't written one of these in awhile mainly because Addison is doing so well. She has come so far and I am so proud of her. That being said I thought it was time for another update. Honestly I thought about naming this 'The One with the 42 Month Old Who is a Threenager' but I decided to go with something a little more positive. Not to say that I don't love having a three-year-old, but it's definitely challenging on a whole new level.


Addison has just a handful of speech therapy sessions left before the school year is over and then we have to make a decision. We have talked about putting her back in the classroom next year instead of just speech. Although she has done so well with speech. She looks forward to it whenever I tell her she has speech the next day. But we know the importance of getting her into a classroom setting and how she could continue to progress even faster.

She has really come so far, even from when she started speech. She is expressing herself so much now. She is constantly talking and even surprising me with what she knows. She is still hard at times to understand but mostly she can express herself without me having to play interpreter. She still babbles some but even her pretend play when she is playing by herself is full of actual words.

When I first started writing these I felt like I could fill up a post easily with too many words to talk about how she was doing but now it's hard for me to find things to say. Which to me is awesome because that means she is doing so well. She is asking questions. She is telling us how she feels. She tells us what she wants. She sings songs. She talks to just talk.

I can't get enough of what she has to say. I know she is still behind where other typical three-year-olds are, but truthfully I don't care. She's doing amazing and I have no worries about her at all. She is progressing faster than anyone ever thought she would. She's smarter than many people give her credit for because of her speech delay. She is is just doing so amazing and I love listening to her talk.
