Rowan has shown a lot of improvement in his speech lately. "Help" has turned into "help me" and "Go to train" has been lengthened to "I want to go to the train." My favourite right now is actually just a simple but significant improvement of one very small word. Up until now Rowan has been saying "yeah" to indicate an affirmative but since yesterday he has been attempting to say "yes." The cute thing about it is the way that he says it. He starts with "yeah" and after a pause of less than a second, adds a very slurry "s" at the end. As he says it you can see he is consciously thinking about this new add-on and he feels very happy with himself when I smile at him and say "Yes my boy. Yes."
