First sentences...is this normal?

My almost 2 year old is just starting to put together long(er) sentences. for example, he pointed to his diaper today and said "I poop in there." The problem is, he gets so excited that he has an almost stutter like he will say "I P-, I Poo, I P-, I poop in there." Is this just normal excitement or something I should look out for?

  • Oh yes! My 3 year old STILL does it, he'll get excited and repeat the same two or three words over and over, "I want, I want to, I want to go to the park!" When he was younger he'd sound out words... "I wa... wan... want, want to go." As far as I know it's completely normal and levels off with age. Unless it continues until kindergarten I wouldn't worry too much.

  • Yeah my son is 2yr and 2 mo today and when he was almost he started putting sentences together. His first was "I go over there" it sounded like I go o dare lol. That is a really good thing and it sounds like you got a smart little one.

  • i think its normal, until they hit school then i think it will be a problem. a friends little brother talks like that but wayyy worse. hes 8 and it takes him about 5 minutes to say that he wants a drink.. they have him in speech therapy. but im pretty sure its normal at your sons age. its cute that he gets excited about making full sentences for himself
