Hi, Somehow your thread reminds my past. I completely understand your situation. Around 7 years ago I sailed in the same boat. Sometimes I felt lonely and then I had not much friends also. But my DD is a precious gift to me and used to play, sing and what not. I like singing and I used to sing her a lot. When she was 9 months I used to show picture cards with words. Eventhough the kids won`t respond, but these things help a lot. When she was 2.5 we sent her to preschool. It was too early but she was speech delayed. So she needed some social interaction to induce talking.We spent lot of money for preschool with one income. Now she is non stop talker. KEEP THE HOPE. THINK ABOUT YOU ARE DOING AMAZING THINGS TO YOUR KID. Hope this helps.
