Just curious as to how well everyone's December babies are speaking. My daughter (12-10-09) had her 18 month check up back in June I believe it was, and her pediatrician told us that she thought she had a speech/hearing impairment. The pediatrician sent us to the hearing specialist to have her ears checked because at that point she was not saying any sentences and only had a handful of words she used daily. Turned out that her hearing is fine, but the pediatrician has me a bit worried as to her development (she was unhappy to see that she did not say 15 words and start putting sentences together at that age) Now my daughter has a good 30 words down and has about 4-6 sentences that she uses. Short things like "I got it" "I don't want anymore" "mean mommy" (haha when she has to go to timeout) "can i have more" "please more" "night night mommy/daddy".
I know all kids develop at their own rate but I just wanted to see where everyone else's kids are at as they come up their 2nd birthday!
