Ryan is 18 months today! Adam is 41 months (3 years and 5 months). Ryan understands so much. When people ask if he is talking I say no. But really that is wrong. Ryan talks all the time. He just doesn't speak english. The word 'train' sounds like 'gain'. Strangely he does say other words very clearly. Recently he combined 'bubble and gum' and he says 'bubble gum' with a big smile on his face. He says 'shoes' but it sounds like 'juice'. More sounds like 'ma'. So really, the answer is yes. He talks but Law knows what that chil' is saying!
