Speech update

As I've mentioned before, Carter is currently receiving speech therapy.  At his one year well-check, when he still wasn't making any consonant sounds, we were referred to ECI (Early Childhood Intervention) here in Houston.  6 months later, he has made such progress.  He says dad, dog, woof, oom (vroom for cars).  He makes lots of sounds, including an imitation of the timer on the microwave.  He can follow simple directions.  He signs "more" and "all gone."  We still have a ways to go, and in fact he just started the point and whine, but I am so pleased with all he's done.

Brady, while not as behind as Carter, is still behind other kids his age.  He also has benefited from these lessons.  He has 5-6 words that anyone would recognize, and another 5-6 that I know what he is saying.  My question is:  Should I be worried that one of his 10-12 words is spongebob?

I think it's funny how we posted the same night with complete opposite "problems." Lol- my kid says no... i don't want to. I think I'd take "spongebob" over that!

Yay! So glad things are going good. So funny about spongebob. Max is weirdly drawn to it too. He wishes I would let him watch it. I'm mean I know...But it is such an annoying show!
