My speech delayed son said his first word while playing!

Thursday, July 12, 2012 by Gymbo Buzz Blog Contest

My son, Andrew, was diagnosed as severely speech delayed at 18 months old. He didn't have a single word until almost 2.5. While at Gymboree Play & Music, he was climbing on something, turned to me, and said "Up mama!" My heart melted and tears came to my eyes! This little boy, who was working so hard with his speech therapist, not only said "up" but also called me Mama! It was so hard seeing all the other little boys and girls babbling to their mommies and finally my little boy said what I had been waiting for. His speech is still delayed, but I will never forget him climbing, smiling and having fun at Gymboree while saying his long awaited first word!
