My Mood: 20 month old not talking yet

Hi there. Sorry I have not been on this board (or any other board) my husband has been in and out of ER's and hospitals due to the fact that he has (side effect of Flomax). He's home now, no more Flomax and he's seeing an urologist who ran all kinds of tests. But that story is for another day.

Now about the 2 1/2 year old who wasn't talking. He is now talking. Not a lot but he understands and replies. He has been in O/T, P/T and speech therapy for quite a while now. It has helped a great deal. He says 3 word sentences. This morning he got up and said 'do pee pee on the potty", so his mother took him into the bathroom and he peed into the bowl.

He is a friendly little fellow but not a chatterer, and he's EXACTLY like his father who is quiet and is an engineer. I think he takes after his father.

The little guy socializes, understands absolutely everything he is told to do but if you are asking 'can you have a conversation with him?" Not at all. He is still in the baby stage of learning to speak. And he knows how to count and he knows his ABC's and if you give him certain objects, like you show him a photo of a hat and then you mix up other photos, he will match the two items together. I think his problem is apraxia.

Time will tell.

And here's the other thing. His mother is 9 months preg and due to give birth next week. She's having a girl. She's been getting him ready to welcome his baby sister. She would ask him questions like: "Are you going to share your toys?" He laughs and says "no". Stuff like that.

How's that for timing?
