Cute Note about Connie's Communication Skills

Today Connie was in the middle of his weekly speech therapy session with Ms. Chris when Nurse Jen arrived to administer the monthly dose of Synagis to vaccinate him against RSV. When Connie looked up and saw Jen, he immediately started shaking his head, "No" and then folded his hands in prayer. It was like he was asking God to deliver him from having to get two shots! Greg, Chris and Jen all died laughing. Connie apparently didn't think it was a funny situation. He definitely remembers Jen and what her job is, even though he's only seen her a few minutes in November and December. That boy is unbelievable. Grandma even said last night at dinner that it's like he might forget that we all think he doesn't/can't say much. Out of the blue he said, "I want more milk." Now, it wasn't quite that clear, but I wasn't the only one who could understand him. Where did a complete sentence come from? The most we've heard is two words or two syllables strung together! I need to take a video of him answering questions because it is so cute the way he says, "uh huh" (his version of yes). His whole body moves in agreement and his voice gets really high pitched on the first syllable. It's a sight!
