rowan's speech three months later + she answers your questions!

on instagram last week i asked everyone to send us some questions for rowan - she always has so much fun recording the fifteen second instagram videos, showing off her talking, that she was really excited about this idea. we got tons of really fun questions and finally got around to filming her answers this morning. she says water park no less then four times and it is hilarious to watch her not understand a question and to just make up a random answer.

i thought about writing out a narrative but i think it would be more fun to see if you can understand what she is saying! she has come so far since may ninth and continues to get beter everyday. she blows away her speech therapist weekly, everyone was sure it could be more like a year before we heard any intelligible talking. we knew from day one it would take the longest to come back so our expectations were adjusted but i can't tell you how much of a blessing it is to be able to have our normal conversations with her just three months later.

this means so much for starting school in september, my guess is she will not need any sort of aid in class, and might not even need to leave class for speech. this is so huge! when you ask her why she thinks her talking is hard sometimes or doesn't sound right, her answer is, "because i was throwing up so much." breaks your heart a little right?

we'll do another one in a month or so to compare and it is fun to hear her answers to your questions so feel free to leave more. if you have any questions about what she says i am happy to answer them in the comments. enjoy!
