I have a step-son who will be 3 in March and he is still not talking! He will say "hi, bye, train, truck, mommy, daddy" and thats about it. Other then that, he does not talk and he does not use scentences at all! He does baby talk and I can not understand him. He also put letters in front of words that don't belong. For instance...his sister's name is Alexia and he calls her Gexia. I'm very worried about his development. My husband is in the military and is currently deployed so it is just me, my daughter, and we have my step son on the weekends. We used to have him all the time, but once he started calling me "mommy" his birth mother put him in daycare. I've talked to the daycare about it and they don't seem to see a problem. I try to work with him when he is here at my house, but I can't only do so much when I just have him on the weekends. Any suggestions?! I've tried talking to his mom about it and that isn't getting me anywhere.
