I will never forget the look on my oldest child’s face when he walked into the hospital room and saw me holding his baby sister for the first time. It was a look of pure betrayal—“Oh, so this is how it’s going to be, now?” Until that fateful day, after all, Jacob had had more than two and a half years of my undivided attention.

People ask me all the time whether he’s talking yet, and I am always thrilled to report, “Nope!”
Expressive speech delay? Bring it on. I have two other children, ages 6 and almost-9, who never shut up. I mean never.
