My son is 14 months and 3 weeks old. He can understand some directions and knows a lot of words when I say them. When he talks, I can tell what he is trying to say but it isn't that clear. He can say "Uh-Oh", "du" (duck), "do" (dog), and dada. Mama is only said when he is really upset and rarely happens. He communicates by pointing, which I know is a good sign but I feel like his language should be more clear and should be reading more. I am a teacher and I know the importance of reading and talking, which I do. My son did have tubes put in his ears back in February and before that was sick for 8 weeks with ear infections. I am thinking that had an imapct on his vocabulary. Anyways, just wondering how far behind he is if he is behind at all with vocabulary. Thanks!
