Porter says Mom, and Dad (I don't hear this one, but his dad claims he says it). I've gotten him to say kitty kitty a couple of times on separate days, and doggie a couple times within a couple minutes one day. Aaaaand that's it.
He signs milk, more, all done, bath, and eat. He points to things, he knows what he wants and communicates in his own ways, he "reads" his books to me and himself in his babble, he makes the same sounds over and over like he's trying to tell me something, but I want to hear that little 20 month old voice TALK to me :(
I've heard that no one will really do anything about his speech until he's two (i.e. speech therapy), is that true? And what can I do until then to help get it moving? Any ideas? I constantly talk to him and ask him questions and explain things (like why he can't play in the trash and why he can't go outside in the winter with no shoes on), I talk and talk and talk with him, but he just doesn't seem to want/be able to (?) use actual words. Should I spend time every day using flash cards? What else can I do?!?
