Hi everyone! It's been almost a year (his first birthday is Wednesday) since Robbie was born @ 31 weeks. He's crawling, pulling himself up, laughing, knows his name and can do the pincer grip but he hasn't even started to babble. He yells - a lot. He grunts and yells. We have a one year check up next week, but should I be worried? (I'm worried. Is it legit?)
Re: Delayed speech?
It's so hard not to worry, but I'd ask your pedi if you are worried. It's amazing how these LOs will seem "behind" in an area and then just take off by leaps and bounds shortly after. Good luck
After the word explosion happened at 20mo, it got loads better. And he's been catching up ever since. He's hust about 4.5 now and never shuts up.
The babies are 34w and have more babbling sounds at 14mo than I ever remember my oldest one having. But they babble differently - it's kinda fascinating.
They are really starting to let me know they understand me now, which I was waiting for after they hit a year. But I think they were working on walking first. Once they mastered walking, I noticed a huge uptick in the amount they showed me they understood what I was saying.
