My 2 year old knows a ton of words. Se will come when called, get a toy we ask her to get and even point out shapes, colors and animals in a book or toys. We've tried making HER tell US what the object is (she likes to grab our hand to point and then points our finger to certain pictures so we say what they are even though she knows.) But, SHE won't say them. She babbles all the time and even hums certain tunes but she doesn't speak real words (that we can understand...some are the same babble-like words.) The dr. said she's fine and we know she is intelligent but do you think it may be we are doing something wrong? She is an only child but I am 4+ months pregnant. Any thoughts? I'm not freaking out but a bit concerned. Thanks!Answer Question

My DD just had her speech evaluation done,which included a hearing test,she passed, the first questions the therapist asked us was,what age she her first teeth,what age she walked,what age she said,DADA,MAMA,bye,hi,thank you,etc.. Well, she walked at 9 months,teeth at 5 months, simple speech 9-11 months. She told us,when babies are very fast at walking,teething, the parents just believe they are suppose to be super fast at talking too. My child wasn't a candidate for speech therapy right now,she told us to continue to speak clearly,and make sure we pronounce all words correctly.She also, said try your best not to compare her to anyone.
