My son was born on oct 2008 , from last month he started saying many words like all the domestic and wild animals , transportation. Now he could say and recognize all the alphabets ,numbers (1 to 10), nearly 10 colours and 5 shapes(circle, triangle, square , heart , star , rectangle).what makes me worry is he is not calling us daddy and mommy also he does not join two words.Still he pushes us to the place to take anything and not mentioning.Again some of his words are not very clear. Is this normal? Please help by sharing your experiences with your kids .He is very active ,rarely stands in place when we take him out , pedals cycle very fast. I am much worried abt him b'cos kids of his age talk a lot .

What happens if you refuse to be "pushed" to something and make him to use his words to tell you what he wants? Different kids talk at different ages. If he can say all of the words you mention, he is doing awesome! My daughter has a huge vocabulary (at age 3), but still says some new words that are not clear. I think that's perfectly normal. It sounds like you have a very smart little boy. Maybe just start really encouraging him to use words. Don't let him take the easy way out by pushing or pointing.
