First he's two and 1 month and can say a few words vnot very often at all, he communitcates by pointing at what he wants and making a seal type noise 'uhh uhh uhh uhh'. he never complains which some people would find good but its hard work because i never know what he needs unless i stick to a routine etc, He is obsessed with spinning wheels and seperates his foods.
But, he is very affectionate and communicates with his eyes he looks at me and hugs and kisses me he loves being tickled and tickling, he knows how to point to his nose, eyes, mouth, ears, hair, teeth, cheeks, belly and toes. He knows what No mean even if he doesnt do what i want him to ha..Hes very cheeky and he loves climbing. He loves diggers and tractors like normal boys and loves anything in the night garden..Im worried as a few people have commented on his speech and its hard not to compare with my littlest brother who is 2 months older than my son and can count to 10 and i quote a conversation i had with him 'Where's mummy james?' and he replies 'In the kitchen making jame's dinner.' and 'Whats on the television james?' reply 'night garden thats iggle piggle' so im exasperated and i feel very upset right now, i do feel a failure..i have flash cards and if i ask kurt (my son) to get a book he'll get a book and sit on my knee and we read together regularly...is he autistic or even mildly??
