Tell me if this sounds like it's worth mentioning to the Pedi on Thursday.
DS is two. He only has five words he uses consistently. It used to be twelve and now we're back to mommy, daddy, hi, bye and no. He used to be able to put his cup on the counter and get it back down on his own but now he just stands there and makes what we call the "can't reach it noise". He started needing help to get onto furniture again. He is suddenly very clingy with just me and freaks out of DH hugs him or picks him up. He is suddenly estranged to his grandparents, aunt and uncles when he used to love them but he will run up to random kids on the playground and hug them. He has started crawling more than walking.
He is obsessed with books but will not let you read to him. He looks at it but if you try to read it to him or hold it he will rip it out of your hands and run off to look at it on the floor. He throws fits when he wants something and we're not understanding what he's asking for, and he gets frustrated and throws fits if we sit with him and repeat a word to try and get him to say it. He does not consistently respond to his name and it seems like sometimes he hears us, sometime's he doesn't. He is off in his own world sometimes.
DH refuses to admit that there's even a possibility DS could have a problem so it's down to me to talk to the doctor about it. Is it worth bringing up, or is hubby right that I'm just paranoid?
