My son is starting to talk more and more- i was worried for a while because of course all my friends have "geniuses" who were talking soooo young ... and could even spell at 18 months....

any way! he is talking so much more now, he even said "i love you" for the first time the other day! it melted my heart! i love that kid! :)

That is so awesome! I know how you feel, too. My oldest was a very early talker; I have a video of him at his first birthday party saying, "tank-oo fo pesents." and "Im birday boy!" So when my second was still not talking, other than "Mama" "Bye-bye" and "Hi" at eighteen months, I was sure there was something wrong with him. In the last two months, though, he's become a completely different child! He keeps surprising me with new phrases and words he's picked up. Nothing astounding for his age, of course, but enough that I know he'll be alright. We've yet to get an "I love you" out of him, though. He says, "you too" instead, even if no one said "I love you" first! lol. I know that day will come, and my heart will melt!

I personally think that as a parent if you are worried then you should get your child checked. but these kids are under so much pressure of comparison! my son is not joining MENSA any time soon but he is bright, kind, thoughtful, sweet, and i love him just the way he is. i think we should all wait at least until our children turn 2 before being scared about their speach, as long as they have had no hearing issues, and can communicate in some way. My son has a good vocabulary but also baby talks and uses giberish words.
all the best to you!

My daughter says a whole lot of stuff, but no exact words that i know.lol She holds conversations with me, but nothing she says are words i understand. It is so cute. She moves her hands around and her eyebrows, just talking plain as day. Yet I cant figure out what she is saying. Personally i think she has her own language, and I have to learn it. She has about 10 good words, that are REAL words....other than that, its a toss up. hahaha. Gotta love-em!!!! So I wonder about the speech therapy thing, but I chalk it up to ...every child is different, and they are all paced different.

My little girl said it about two months ago, and hasnt said it since. It makes it all the better when she finally says it again. Oh, and of course i was the only one home, so no-one else heard it.(darn) But they were the greatest words I have ever heard in my entire life! Even if no-one else heard it. lol

My daughter has only said it twice. first to me, then 3 days later to her daddy. it's been a few weeks but i can wait. just hearing it once was enough to keep me going forever. :)

That's wonderful. My daughter is trying to say it. And for me that's what counts. The pronunciation will come.

Awwww! I can't wait til my son masters those words. I try to get him to say "I love you" and he just says "yea" (apparently he knows I love him) or he will say "kisses" and offer me his cheek to give him a kiss. Congratulations!

For the longest time my daughters "I love you" sounded like "I farted" haha. Just recently it has changed to "I wuv ya". It just puts a smile on my face thinking about it!!

I have been trying to get my son to say I love you recently. We have a routine where I tell him to give his daddy a hug and a kiss and he will run over to him and do that and now he is trying to say I love you but it doesn't really sound like it yet. At least he is trying though. I think it is really cute how he will call me yummy mommy!
