Cole is still not talking/babaling or using any words. Sometimes when he is mad & screaming...it sounds like he is saying MOOOOM! but I'm not sure if he is really saying it or not. Yesterday he actually said "YEAH" very clearly...but again...I think he just made the noise. We LOVE watching Cole run around the house! He loves trying to "run" into Gracie and he loves his drink. He downs 8oz of Stevia in 2 min. He still grinds his teeth (which drives us CRAZY!). He dosn't play w/toys...but will play w/his elmo toy, baby enstein light up toy and any remotes or phones. Cole still hand wrings (for self stimulation) but not as much as he used to. He CAN NOT tolerate being in crowds or loud places...so we don't really go anywher. He loves to swing and if we are bending over or sitting on the ground- he will sit or lean against us (it is SOOOO cute!). It's HARD to get him to laugh- and when he does it is a little peice of HEAVEN!!!
