They are not talking at all yet, which of course worries me a little. We had Early Intervention here on Monday for Asher's 6 month evaluation. His torticollis is much better, although he still tilts his head to the right at times, especially when he is tired. Now our bigger concern is that he walks on his tip-toes. Note to parents: don't google things. The possibilities that come up with "walking on tip-toes" are not good. EI doesn't think we need to worry about the serious stuff (cerebral palsy, autism), but that he should learn to walk using his whole foot. Next up: a referral for physical therapy. But as far as the not-talking goes, they said not to worry. The boys definitely communicate, they babble, and make a variety of sounds. We were told to imitate their babbles, which we were already doing, but given they are both boys (and boys learn to talk a little later than girls), we don't need to worry just yet.

In the end, the complaints are few and the joys are many. Not a day goes by where I don't pause and remember how lucky I am, and how grateful I am to have two healthy and beautiful children. 14 months old, and the time is just flying.
