Every child is at a different pace with development. Toddlers babble, some make clear sentences. My son can sometimes make clear sentences, but he's still talking gibberish most of the time. I have to be his interpreter in front of others. I can understand what he's saying a lot of the time even when he is babbling most of the sentence, I can catch a few words to connect what he's trying to say...and I usually call it "Mommy ears." We as mothers can understand our children and I think that's fine.
And then I'm being told that I am talking FOR him. That he's not learning because I'm saying it FOR him. He's 21 months. I hear, "talk clearly, I don't understand you." When I can clearly understand what he's trying to say...and I'll go do it. He wants his sippy and I hear it, I get it. Then I get lectured because he needed to say it clearly. He was getting ready to get it himself, but it was too high for him so when I understood he wanted it, I got it so he wouldn't hurt himself climbing. Is that wrong???

It sounds like you have had some criticism. Is it your MIL????
You are doing for your child and that is fine. My son is 6 and sometimes I have to interpret for him. Not because he talks gibberish, but because he rambles on and people miss his point.
I would let him say what he wants then say it the right way for him.
