Hi everyone. My daughter was born on March 16, 2007. She is my second little girl and is still not talking much. My older daughter was talking up a storm by the time she was this age, but my 20 month old still only says a few words, mainly Mama and Dada. She really only has about 5-7 words so far. She understands everything we tell her and can follow directions really well. Her doctor says that this shouldn't be a concern until she is 2. I can't help but want her to start talking sooner. It is getting hard since she will throw fits when she wants something, but I have no idea and she can't communicate what it is that she wants. Is anyone else going through this?
