How well do your 19 months old babies talk? I attributed my son's delayed talking to being raised in the bilingual home and having only 4 teeth (they do need teeth for proper speech). He understands a lot in both languages. He can identify body parts, objects in the book, animals and their sounds, fruits, etc. When we ask him he points to the right objects. But he only says few words properly, most of the words improperly, and there are words he just makes up. For example, he decided that moon is going to be "NaNee" and every time he sees one he points and says it...etc for other objects. I asked our pediatrician if his speech would be delayed, the answer was yes. But I do not know if making up words is normal.
