Quoting Killingℬird(14w):" Because my son will not talk yet. I get the occasional dada, and that's basically it. He's 17.5 months. I feel like I'm trying so hard but not doing something right. Just a vent I guess."
If it makes you feel better, Albert Einstein supposedly didn't speak until he was three. =)
Christopher took FOREVER to talk, but when he finally did, he didn't quit talking. Now he's 3 and making full sentences and sometimes I wish he was 17 months again. :wink: He'll get there. They all go at their own rate. Just work with him, but don't push it. You're a good Mama. Don't stress.
