Was just on FaceTime with my mother-in-law, who openly disbelieved us when we told her DS15mo started talking before 6 months. She still seems to think DS doesn't talk. The reality is that he doesn't know her and, so, doesn't feel comfortable opening up to her yet.

During the call, DS and I were reading a book in the background and counting 7 fish in a picture book. DH asked DS what number comes after 7, to which he replied "8". He did the same for 9. MIL was aghast.

Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.
