Kiwi started the same thing. She started talking at around 6 months, and was completing sentences by a year. And hasn't stopped since. But, around age 3, she started stuttering, repeating the first word or first sound of a word a few times and it really pissed her off that she was having the problem. All you need to do is stay calm and don't draw attention to it by waving your hand or anything. We just told Ki to stop and think about what she wants to say, so now she'll tap her temple when it starts and say "gotta think about it" (which she never stutters that part for some reason), then after calming a bit she'll get it out. Her doctor told me during her physical for kindergarten that she will most likely outgrow it, that most kids go through this, and if she doesn't by the time school starts, they will probably put her in speech therapy there for it. It's nothing really major to worry about.
