OK, for those who don't know. my son, Aidan, has a speech delay. He's three and has the language abilities of a 19 month old. He started in the Bright Eyes preschool program for kids with disabilities where he gets speech therapy. Aidan usually just uses one or two words to tell me what he wants, he doesn't really use sentences. Well today at lunch, he gave me the biggest shock of my life! I made him chicken nuggets for lunch and he likes to dip them in ranch dressing. When he sat down the nuggets were there, but I hadn't gotten the ranch out yet. He looks at me and says "Dip the nuggets?" meaning "Hey mom! Where's the ranch!"...lol. I said  "I'm sorry, I'll get it". He looks right at me and says "Don't worry. It's ok!" !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I almost started crying when I heard him say that! This is such a big deal for me that he's actually trying to talk in sentences!!!! I am so proud of him!!!!!!!!!!!
