How well do you kids talk. This is the third time this week someone has commented to me " wow she talks." I always assumed she is almost three and should be the chatter box she is. Sometimes we can't get her to be quiet. These comments are freaking me out.

she is just using her new found skill of chatting. my two year old started one day and never stopped. it is very normal and not at all something to worry about. Some two year olds can't talk this way until later so if anything she is advanced.

yes my Lana is the same way. when she was 1 year old she could not only talk but started singing and everything. she counts, know her abc and taylor swift and beyonce are her fave singers. she know their songs by heart and people are always telling me how intellegent she is. lol Toni Martin you are right. it must be a girl thing.

We get that tons too. It doesn't help she was preterm and is tiny, and also does sign language. People assume she is either very sickly (ha) or extremely intelligent (okay I'm biased but of course she is.)

I have found that a lot of people are amazed by the things we take as everyday occurences. Bella starts singing about continents or counting german and everyone stops and asks us about her. My other three can do the same things and we get weird looks?!

I agree my daughter is only quiet when she is sleeping or sick and some days i am ready to pull my hair out since she has entered the 'but why' phase but her speach is very clear and progressing every day so I wouldn't worry about it.

My daugther turns 3 in Jan and yes, she is a chatter box. From the moment she wakes she talks and talks and wants me to explain everything to her. I've heard similar comments about her talking being so good but for me it's normal. So don't even listen to what people say. You know your kid is speaking abilities are developing perfectly fine!
