Really worried about my 16month old. Any advice will help

I have two kids one is 2 1/2 and the other is 16months. And I'm currently pregnant. I have recently been stressing out. My 16months old is not communicating very well at all. He rarely says momma and daddy. He says bye bye and sometimes night night. He knows how too high five and fist pound. But he doesn't seem too focus as well as he should be. I have his check up in February but thinking about making one before then. My 2 1/2 year old picked up things a lot quicker than most his age so I never had this problem before. I'm just worried idk if this is normal or not everything ive seen online makes me feel like it's not normal. How can i get him too start communicating better and learning things quicker. Any suggestions would be great. 

I will add tho he knows more than he's showing he just doesn't really talk. He knows who i am and who dad is and he knows ball, bottle, dog etc but he just doesn't say the words.

Thank you

  • My daughter is 19 months she's only saying Uh oh, mama, Ace( my dogs name), up and All done. We have an appointment tomorrow to get her evaluated. She communicates really well by pointing to what she wants waving clapping and follows simple directions. When I ask her to bring me a certain toy she can bring it to me like her toy horse from her farm or a cup of coffee from her toy kerige in her kitchen. So we are trying to to worry I just wish she'd start saying more to ease my mind. I would get an appointment to get him evaluated to give you piece of mind and get him the help he needs if he needs it.
