my son was born September 8th 2009, he can say words, and repeat most everything if i point at it and say "flower" he will repeat it. i can ask him to go get me something and he understands, or where something is, he will go and look and say "oh! there it is!" but he is still taking me to show me what he wants ( like to the fridge to get a drink) he won't actually ask with worlds for a drink or say I'm thirsty or hungry he just shows me. should i be worried? i have had 3 people now tell me i should get his ears checked. we have a friends baby who is a year older who was talking and communicating by 12 months! and his little cousin is 2 months younger and was talking a lot way before Dominic was even saying anything. he is very physically ahead of the other kids we know who are in the same age group. he can climb like no other!! he plays on the big kid play ground and can climb by himself to the very top with out falling. the past few months he has been picking up words like crazy and way more vocal then before. is anyone else's kids doing this? and what are you doing about it?
