  • He will talk when he is ready. My oldest DD didn't start talking until she was about 2 and a half years old. Now I can't get her to shut up, lol!

  • My oldest didn't utter a recognizable word until he was 2 and 1/2. Now he's 4 and never stops talking. My youngest has been chatting away since he was about 12 months. Every kid is different. Is your son bilingual by any chance?

  • Or is your household bilingual, I mean?
