It's only when he has a need that needs meeting, but he keeps thrusting books at me firmly saying 'mum'. And if I look at him, he looks at the book, thrusts it at my face and says sdoooweeee.


A whole year without hearing him say it. It's so lovely to hear.

I remember that feeling. DS regressed at 27 months, stopped calling me mum until he was over 3 and then only because ABA started a programme getting him to look at who he was talking to. Its was more a 'its mum' very matter of fact, rather than a 'Mum!' But I can guarantee you will never take it for granted again, no matter how often he says it.

Today is the first time he has said Mum since he was 15 months old. He is now 27 months old. He regressed at 15mo.

It's so lovely to hear him call me Mum again. gringringringringrin
