Quoting Ethan's Mommy 2011:" I wished my son would learn but sometimes I feel like he's just being lazy. I can't make him repeat anything unless he's really hook on the word so strange!"


DS went through that too. He would say a word and I would be so proud of it that I would tell everyone, and try to show them. As soon as I told him "Say (insert word)" He would give me a funny look and either say stubbornly silent, or babble... I swore he was just trying to make me look crazy :lol: Dont worry, he will grow out of it.

Hehe. Some kids just take longer than others. but the average speaking age is 18 months, so he's not too far off :)

LOL! Thanks mama. That's how my son is too. So I would only make him said words that he's been repeating like forever.
