The cutest thing, AJ has been asking all sorts of questions. I find it cute because AJ was nearly deaf in his left ear as a young child and had to have tubes placed in his ears. He had multiple ear infections that went untreated even with antibiotics, after a long time of him having ear infections over and over and having one so bad that his ear swelled off his head they referred him to an ENT. The ENT recommended tubes and told us his left ear was so bad it had basically “glue” over his ear drum. This makes sense now looking back, AJ was slow to talk or anything like that, advanced physically but the speech wasn’t coming.

Now that AJ is four it’s almost like he is at the same level with his 2 year old brother as far as talking and questions go. The other night I was laying with AJ before bedtime as I snuggle with him for a few minutes before bed and he says to me “Mama 100 comes after 9 right?”. I giggle and said “no hunny 10 comes after 9″. AJ looked at me slightly confused with a big grin and asks “Mama can you count to 100?”. I told AJ “why yes I can” and proceeded to count to 100. As my lips moved to form each number all the way up to 100, AJ moved his lips almost as if he was learning as I spoke the numbers!

AJ smiled as the numbers went higher and higher until I finally reached 100. He was so happy and it warmed my heart to see my little boy smile, AJ rarely smiles so a smile from him I cherish so much more than I would from a child who smiles all the time! Of course after I counted to 100 AJ says:

Mama how much is it to 200? Can you count to 200?

I laughed and said, yes I can count to 200 but let’s do that another night. Sweet dreams AJ, Mama loves you!
