My twins are 9 months 2 weeks (adj. age 8 months old) and they are totally different.My girl is really vocal, she bables, yells and makes raspberries, but she does not crawl yet and also, today she starts sitting by herself, from tummy or back position to sitting position,in the other hand my boy is totally motor ,he crawls, pulls up from furniture and tries to move but he does not bable, he only makes raspberries sounds, and coos sounds and also yells.Both are in regional center because they are preemie, and the lady said that when one baby is focused in one thing (for example crawl) sometines other milestone could be delay.I am worried about my boy.Could be normal that he does not bable yet? he smiles me back,follows objects, looks for me when he is tired or wants to be held,sometimes answer his name when i called him, but no bable yet,now he has separation anxiety, laughs when his big brother play with him. Coul be normal?Answer Question

I have a 2, 3 year old cousins. One a boy and one a girl, the girl talks so much and is has been for the longest time. The boy omg you can't understand shit he is saying haha. So I think it just goes to show that girls are smarter. The boy is 2 weeks older than the girl.

Yes, My son (born at 35 wks) did not babble with consonants at 9 months, so we had him evaluated by Early Childhood Intervention. They said basically the same thing about delays sometimes occurring when babies are working on another skill, and they felt he would come around. As the weeks ticked by with still no babbling, I went berserk researching everything from Autism to Apraxia. Turns out, ECI was right. After he started pulling up and cruising (around 10.5 months), he started babbling a little (but still no b's, m's, gesturing or pointing, so was still worrying). But, he took his first steps 3 days before turning 1, and within a day or two, he started babbling more. Within a week after his birthday, he said mama and ba-ba. I wouldn't worry too much, and FYI...too much internet research can cause A LOT of unnecessary anxiety!
