Yeah, a psychoanalysis of a fictional character can go into it's own thread. Update wise, the boys are progressing so fast, it's like a snowball. 1 word... 4 words... 20 words... now we've lost count. Plus we're getting 2 word phrases (red boat, blue car, hi daddy, me down. even a few 3 words- ready set go!) and they can answer some yes and no questions. Never give up hope. My boys went from "little zombies" to "Social Butterflies" in about 1/2 a year, we're even getting ready to start preschool (a normal one, not a specialized program.) Good luck and best wishes to all of you. I'll be thinking of you.
