"Signs of Language Delay"

Last Sunday, while attending the Church Vesper Worship Service, Maki wanted to go down and run around. Of course we don't allow him because he might disturb the Worship Service. So to make him busy we gave something to play with, we gave the worship program. Though we gave him the paper he's pointing at her mommy's bag. At first I didn't know what he wanted but later I realized that he needs a pen to write. So I pulled out my sign pen and gave it him. He was kept busy sketching and scribbling. At least he won't bother anyone.

After a few minutes he started babbling words as if he was telling a story about his scribbling. Worst, his babbling gets louder so I brought him down at the lobby and sat down on a chair, place Maki on top of the table and there he continued scribbling and babbling. While he was scribbling I talked to him and asked what he was doing. He look at me and points his scribbling while babbling as if he was talking to me. Very good I said. At least I don't have to worry that my son is having problem with his communication skills.

I was able to read an article on regarding signs of language delay and I'm glad that my son is not affected with it. He's on the right track.

Here it is to check what are the signs of language delay from an article in And if you see this signs coordinate immediately with your pediatrician.

  1. boys eh.. hehe my four yeald bulol pa din.. thanks for understanding about the badge.. anyway, pasintabi ha, mejo spam eh:

    Hi guys! I know some might find this offending (a bit of a spam, again) but this is the only way I know to get back at you as quickly as possible.

    First, I would like to thank all of you for patronizing utoy(adgitizing made easy). Utoy is very happy with your warm welcome. He is glad that you find time playing with him (using the tool). In the near future we will make a post about Utoy's playmates to show our appreciation to all of you.

    Second, if you have been playing with him and still could not figure it out, here are some guides that may help:

    Click an utoy box and it will open 5 tabs (each site has an adgitize ad group)
    Click one adgitize ad on each site. Clicked ads will open in another tab. That gives you 10 tabs.
    Close all then click an Utoy box again.
    Each utoy box gives you 5 points

    Please take note that you have to log in to your aditize account before playing with utoy..
    Lastly, Utoy prefers Firefox.

    Thanks again!
