I've written recently about DDs speech delay. Well more and more lately she just seems to ignore us so we're going to the Dr next week and I'm going to ask to get her hearing checked. I've purposely gone back to the doctor who said he wanted to see a huge improvement in her speech between 18 months and 2 because there hasn't been much improvement. DH is a little in denial and just keeps saying he thinks it's all fine. It might well be fine but fact is she's behind and we need to rule out other causes. DH then got a dose of reality today when a friend of mine posted a video of her child who is a few days younger then dd naming all of these pictures like "car, cake, clock, horse etc" there was probably 30 of them and he chatted in between. DH actually found it hard to watch. He knows my niece is clever and talks a lot but I've been trying to explain that she is actually quite average when you see other kids dds age. Hopefully it's all ok and the fact she says a few words means she's just taking a little while. Wish me luck!
