Azer is now 5 years old! I was remembering the other night, around the time when he first got diagnosed, I was wondering if he would even live to 5 years old. I didn't expect him to be thriving so well. I can only pray he does so well health wise in school too. I worry about that at times.
He is such a boy lately. Motorcycles, Hummers, loud, noisy trucks, and dirty cars are usually part of his conversation.
I really need to say something here: Both of my kids talk, a lot. More than a lot. In a day, they talk more than a group of very busy business people that are on the cell phone all day. Seriously. They never stop talking. It really drives me crazy. Remember a few years ago when a speech therapist used to come over and try to "teach" him to chew his food and speak more? She told me that if I didn't continue therapy, he might not learn to talk at all. Yeah, right. Its probably a good thing I never did continue with it. I don't think a child, or two children, could talk any more than they do!
Another announcement of news: Both Azer and Reema learned to ride their bikes without training wheels! On the same day even! I had to go buy myself a bike just to keep up with them. Wow, those kids. That's the first thing they ask when they wake up now, "Can we ride bikes today?" The exercise is good for me ... however at the end of the day, I do regret it ;)
