Kaitlyn is not very talkative. She is BY FAR my slowest talker. Jackson said over 50 words by age 2 (and I know this because I was a FT Mom and I made a list for his baby book) and Cammi was talking in sentences by 2. I admit that Cammi is a chatterbox. Kaitlyn, on the other hand, understands everything you tell her to do and she follows directions. But, she only says about 10 words: Hi, bye bye, Momma, Dadda, Mimi, woof, more, roar, quack, blue juice (which is what she calls her rice milk cuz it comes in a blue carton. She is not allowed to drink juice cuz of her immature digestive system). . . . She doesn't put two words phrases together and that raised a red flag to the doctor. So, the doctor says that the county offers a free in home evaulation and we agreed to let someone from the county come to our home to evaluate her for speech delay. I am trying not to panic, I don't think there is anything wrong with her. But, I do think that there is a lot of benefit to early intervention if she is delayed. So, I will let them come. I think that she spends all day with her older sister and she lets Cammi talk for her. Cammi is always telling me "Mommy, Kaitlyn wants X". So, DH and I need to encourage Kaitlyn to speak for herself.
