My son has very little language, just a few object identification words. When I tell him "I love you", I never get the slightest reaction. He never seemed to comprehend what it meant at all. Recently we taught him to nod his head for yes, and have been prompting him with it so he can learn to do it appropriately. Yesterday I said "I love you". His eyes got really big, and he nodded, for yes, but really exaggerated and emphatic. I really felt like he realized that he finally had SOME tool to be able to tell me back!
Happy for you. They are blessings, aren't they?!
