Liam Says…

When Liam was barely 1 yr old, we noticed that his tongue is shorter and had it checked sa Doctor. Doc says that he is tongue tied. So I was so worried then. So we had him checked with an Expert.  Doc said that Liam’s case is minor and that he’s too young for snipping. If there will be a need for snipping he suggested to do it when Liam turns 7.  This calmed me a little, but nonetheless, still worried that he will be bulol.  Pero I thought to myself, sino naman bang bata di bulol at this age diba!??

Ngayon, all worries are gone!! Pano Liam is soooo daldal na. As in! Everyday he has a new word. Kaya am writing this post baka di na namen maalala later when he gets older. Here goes…
