Words Cannot Express

Will has words!!!!  Over the past few weeks, Will has been working very hard at speech.  We are basically trying to teach him to talk by isolating all of the sounds that make up words.  And...drumroll please...he is beginning to use sounds to actually communicate with us! This past weekend, Will was in his highchair, and all on his own he said "ah-dun"...meaning he was "all done" with his breakfast.  It has blossomed from there, and two days later he was saying "ah-dun" to get out of the cart at the grocery store.

Our little Buster can now say:

all done

This is awesome!  As little as 3 months ago, Will did not have ANY words and now he has a whole list.  Even Jack has been helping Will learn, and it is so much fun to see them working together. Words truly cannot express our joy. Oh, and by the way...still seizure free!!!


  1. Dan and Kelly,

    Justin and I are SO happy to hear of Will's progress! Children are a true miracle of God and it brings tears to our eyes to see your family working through this season in your lives. Our son is 3 months old now and we are enjoying every minute!

  2. Kelly,

    I'm so happy to hear that! I hope his progress continues! You and your family are in my prayers.


  3. Hi,

    My name is Jeannie and I've been following your blog for a few months now. I was so thrilled to have read the post about Will saying words. Our son Jackson (2) was diagnosed with IS in Feb 2011 as well and it's been a hard journey. He is currently on the Ketogenic diet. I'd love to be able to get in touch with you.
