Air Jordan Women Size “Li” for light
Bennett 15 months old on the 5th. He will stand for a few seconds unassisted and took 3 VERY wobbly steps on Sunday (stumbling Air Jordan Women Size toward daddy’s arms), but he is very very far from actually being able to walk. we think he says dada and baba, but for the most part, I would say he doesn’t have any words yet. When my first son had words, we knew it. He seems to understand some of what we say to him but sometimes its like I’m talking to a wall, lol. I don’t know what to think! has his 15 mo appt and EI eval next week, and I’m not sure how hard I should press on these issues, how “worried” I should be. He’s super small still too just hit 18 lbs and still only 27.25”. Grrrrr! Walking: DD (3 months premature) began walking right around 15 months actual, so just about a year adjusted. She didn’t get good at it until about a month after that. I think what you’re describing there sounds pretty normal, even if his adjusted age was 15 months.
Talking: DD has always been a talker. She never had any verbal delays, and once she started really talking she exploded. She’s 27 months (today, actually!!) and has been talking in full sentences for quite some time. Having said THAT, though, I still don’t think I’d be super concerned about the speech stuff at this point. There are moms on my DD’s birth board who have kids turning 2 who still only have a handful of words. I think it’s worth mentioning at your EI appt, but I don’t think it’s a crisis by any means. Perhaps some of the moms who have dealt with speech issues can weigh in, too. Also, does he communicate in other ways, either by signing or pointing or anything?
Overall, I think he sounds like he’s doing fine!
Eli is still small.
Eli has no words. He babbles dada (8% of the time), gaga (90%), recently mama (2%). He doesn’t point and he doesn’t know who dad and mama are. He grunts for things he wants.
He still doesn’t qualfiy for EI but she put him in the ‘follow along’ part of the program, especially since he will be having a craniotomy soon. At the moment she has us doing hand over hand (put your hand on top of his) and help him point at pictures in Saying the name and making the sounds. Gets him to point on his own (so far not yet) and associate the word and sounds with the picture. Just now 2 mos (turned mo the 2nd and almost 12 mos adjusted) just now getting the hang of wearing shoes and walking. Does Bennett wear shoes?
I have two the same age to compare! Jillian does all sorts of stuff, Air Jordan 16s crawls, sits up. Payton can not even sit up long by herself and I get so worried. Our Dr.’s say that Payton is just more your typical early preemie and she has those types of issues. We had a developmental test in July and although we were told Payton was behind motor skill wise, she will catch up, it will just take more time. It was Nike Air Foamposite One also conveyed to me that they really do not worry unless they are not doing these things by age 2. My girls do talk though, one thing they did early
Isaic is still small too! A few weeks ago at the doctor’s office he was 18lbs 11oz. I hope he’s up to19lbs now.
Isaic started walking around 15 months actual (12 months adj). I wouldn’t be suprised if Bennett takes off soon. It was really a matter of days when Isaic was taking those wobbly steps to us before he gained confidence and took off! Does he have something he can push? Isaic has a little walker from PreSkool that he used to help walking.
With respect to talking. Isaic is slower at this. He says da ddy very well. He says mama only when he wants me to pick him up. We think he says “dat” for cat and “dodo” for dog. Isaic is pretty good about sounding out the beginning of a word, “Li” for light, “Ne” for nose and No.
But like ann2marie, said I’m not sure Isaic knows who mama and dada are. He can say those words but I’m not sure if he can put it together.
I think that as long as they can comprehend some of what you say, its fine.
Good luck with your EI appointment. (your post reminded me that I need to call them too!)Mom to Isaic (2 24 08 at 28 weeks 6 days 2lbs 4oz)
Baby 2 is on the way. My full term son didn’t start walking until a week before he turned 15 months. The age range for “normal” for full term babies goes up to 18 months. I wouldn’t worry about that at all! Our preemie daughter (6 weeks premature) started walking at 12 months actual.
As for talking, our pediatrician said she would think our preemie daughter would have 3 5 words by 15 months. So far, she has none. She’s 13 months now. We think she’s starting to say mama, but we’re not sure. I also feel Air Jordan Spizike like I’m talking to a brick wall most of the time! She doesn’t seem to want to pay attention long enough to absorb anything. Our FT son was very into reading books and had a huge vocabulary by 15 months, so we’re having trouble with comparing Air Jordan 11s the two of them. Our two kiddos seem to be opposite. Our son was into reading and speaking and that kind of stuff while our daughter seems to be into the physical stuff.
