She really wasn't speaking much, and at her 12 month and 18 month check ups her doc said that maybe we should have her hearing checked. She wasn't trying to really communicate at all, but she would love on me and other people, so he didn't think it was autism, which I agreed with him on that. Her communication consisted of screaming and crying mostly. Well, in the past week or so she has really picked up on talking, and yesterday she said her first really clear sentence. It was "NO! It's mine!" lol well, at least she talked. hehe Now I don't have to worry about her hearing. The reason I was starting to worry about her hearing was she would in the morning after she woke up, she would go to her door and say EET EE OOWW (let me out, using only the vouel sounds of the words). R was starting to worry also, he said that maybe we should have her hearing checked. I told him that she has a 2yr check up comming up, and that waiting a few more weeks wasn't going to hurt anything. R III started to talk (mama and dada) at 4 months, and J started to say that at about 9 months or so. She is just picking up so many words every day now. I'm really relieved.
