Today I’m thankful for consonants. We were at Liam’s baseball game this week when I said to Garreth, “Do you hear that?” We both looked at Aidan. He speaks with a very open voweled sound and throws in a few mmms and bbbs here and there. That night he was stringing together a bunch of consonants and vowels and it was very exciting. When Liam got up to bat, I think I heard Aidan yell, “For Frodo!” or maybe that was me. I’ve always said I would do that. The consonants definitely helped Liam as he swung at every good pitch and even hit a double.
