Lacota was born 9-10-09. He says words like mama, dada, go, night, light, byebye, hi, uhhuh,unuh, huh, up, done, juice, yea, sticker, nose, that, duh, did, it, I, Bubba (his nickname), no, okay, good, and learns a few (3-4) new words a day lately. He normally says one word sentences and points. But he also says 2 word sentences but they always start with mama or dada. He only says one 3 word sentence "I did it". He walks & runs everywhere. He don't say bite or food, but when hungry he says mama and points into his mouth. He can't say more, but when his plate is empty his points to it then the food, or shakes his cup and points to the fridge. He feeds himself with utensils (about every other bite makes it to his mouth). He can follow simple instructions like get this or that, undress, put your shoes/hat, clean up, etc. He can undress himself, & he puts his own shoes on. He cleans up his toys. He brushes his own teeth. He knows and can show you where his belly, head, hands, feet, nose, mouth, & eyes are. He can point to correct pictures of animals when asked which is a cat, dog, bird, and fish. He can woof like a dog when asked what sound a dog makes. He knows the rooms of the house if asked to go to kitchen, his room, bathroom, or my room. I'm sure I'm forgetting things, but that's about my boy. Just wondering if he's sounds like he's developing the same, behind, or ahead of other toddlers??

He sounds like he's developing at Lacota speed. :) No two kids are the same, so the way they each develop is perfect for them. As long as he's not lagging far behind developmental points, he's fine. And it doesn't sound like he is! Frankly, I've met adults that can't handle eating utensils that well! Enjoy!

he sounds to me like hes doing great! my little girl was born 20/06/09 and isnt doing that much! i think they all develop at their own pace and will do things when they are ready to.

Every child is different and learns at different speeds. From what you mentioned, it sounds like he is doing really well. You are a great mom, don't worry!

Oh ok :) I forgot you guys write the date m/d/y.
Well he sounds like a very bright little kid to me and ahead for his age.

No, just curious. He's my first so I just wondering if he sounds like he's on target. I think he is, but thought i'd get your opinions.

Was there a certain area in which you were concerned about his development? He sounds just fine from what you describe :)
