Quoting Mayhem.:" DD is 20 months or so and says a ton of words. But DS, at her age, said very, very few. All kids are different, don't be worried about "normal". As long as he shows progress, he should be fine! "That's what I notice too because when his cousin(girl) at his age speak so much. I was just worried thinking there was something wrong with him because like he would said one word only once then stops saying it ever again. I would try to make him repeat it, it's almost like he doesn't know how to pronounce it anymore...

Quoting Kayla [ ]♥:" Yes, it is normal. My son didn't actually talk until almost 3, so I'd be excited my 19 month old could say anything haha"LOL I was excited that's why I wanted him to repeat it but he doesn't. Just looks at me like what are you saying. Almost feels like he would only speak if he wants to. I guess till then he can just pull me or point to whatever that he wants
Quoting Kayla: mommy of 2 (::" Mine DD was like that, and I was really worried about her. She is 22 months now and she learns new words ... [snip!] ... day (especially copying from what other people say" and starting to put sentences together like "whats that", "over there", etc"That's cute! I also heard a lot of stories that girls are faster learner than boys. The other day we were at a birthday party and he kept hearing people said bye so he repeat just once and stops.
Quoting Soon 2B Mom of 2:" DS is 20 months tomorrow, and he speaks in sentences. I swear he learns atleast 3 new words a day, but ... [snip!] ... words a day, but he just started learning alot of words and what they mean at about 18 months. Every baby is different though."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!
Quoting Mayhem.:" You could always ask his pedi I've always been told that girls speak and gain vocabulary sooner than boys. Not sure how true it is, but it's always seemed true in my family. "I guess it's true about girls and boys developments. I can't ask his pedi anytime soon because we won't have a next appointment till after he turns 2 which is a while from now unless he's sick which I don't want to jinx for lol.
Quoting Kyliesaurus♥Roaaaar:" my daughter was saying short sentences by 18months but I have friends who kids are 2 and still not talking a bunch. All kids are different "Thanks! Just really hope that's what it is and nothing too serious.
Quoting Kyan&Nate:" I know a little girl that is two and still doesn't say anything. She just points at things or makes noises ... [snip!] ... things or makes noises and her mum gets her what she wants. Eg. She make this clicking noise with her mouth whrn shes hungru."LOL that's cute! When my son is hungry he just runs to the fridge or if I ask if he's hungry he gets excited. He's also pointing and pulling me to things when he wants something.
