No, it's not normal. It's annoying.

Your list right?

Funny, all (but two) of the people that are having trouble with this thread and any of my others are those that loooooooooooooove to argue and contradict and bash and judge and TROLL themselves. Funny.

I have no respect for you.

I do however for Sampaguita and Skahar. Much different kinds of people.

I'm just using it as a quote or a source just like anyone else using the internet.

There are no "smilies" for this conversation.
First of all, I sincerely think it's wonderful that your baby is doing so well in verbal communication and no where did I say that I think you are above me. Please.

My point is that you bumped up another thread that discusses speech delays in children several months older than your own. It had absolutely no relevance.

You call it a source - a source for what?

Oh, no....Really?

I feel so inadequate.

Please, carry on with your free assistance & healthcare & superiority over the human race.

You are a troll. Loud & clear.

Classy move on bumping up the other thread!

Thanks for that (I think). But I really felt you showed disrespect for Skahar by bumping up the other thread.

That thread was one that obviously showed parents with concerns for speech development while this one has devolved from being "how many words does your 1 yr old have" to well, not sure what it's become. The two just aren't related. Maybe I just see it differently.

I do see it differently but that doesn't mean that it is true or isn't. I sent a direct message to her about it.

I just think it is bull that I am proud of my choices and confident and am bashed for it. I can be confident and proud and still not think my child is better than any of yours or that I am a better parent. I don't think that and that is all I can say. No matter how hard you try to read into it, it is just YOUR interpretation. Just like an artist's work. You might see anger and the artist might have been very happy indeed. It's all in how you read. Maybe I'm just abstract. Now hold on a minute, don't go thinking I'm saying your aren't abstract and you are simple just because I am the opposite

Heck, one kid out there could be speaking like 9837459347597345937 words by 12 months and what does THAT say for the average?
I just think we need to stop with this constant keep up with the Jones' mentality. I did that with my first child and am so much more relaxed now that I have jumped off the comparison train with my second. There are times when it's medically necessary to find out what's going on. There's others where you just have to smile and nod and let the other parent ramble on about the fabulousness of their kid and not take it to heart or get sucked in.

My oldest was not cute when she was little. I sat in awe of her cousins who were truly Gerber beautiful. I loved my daughter but she was definitely not going to win any sort of beautiful baby prize. Fast forward 6 years and she is drop-dead gorgeous. People literally stop in the middle of the mall or a store and tell her how pretty she is. Her cousins? Not. Fix the things you can change and adapt to those you can't.

If your kid isn't talking at the "normal" stage, perhaps they will master potty training in a weekend. If they aren't reading at grade level, perhaps they will have great hand/eye coordination. Few kids are perfect at everything. Those who are "genius" smart usually grow up to be totally bizarre adults.

Well thank god my kid isn't a REAL genius then, lol

Still, I'm not a Jones and I don't think anyone on here is either. Just curious that's all.

If my thread makes someone feel bad they should go somewhere else. Those that want to answer should answer. Same with any thread I guess

I am not upset that you bumped the other thread because it doesn't clash with anything I've said here. I was asking for support from people who had "been there, done that" in regards to late talking. It is different because I wanted help. I wasn't just saying "my kid does wonderful things, how bout yours". But we'll have to agree to disagree on this one I guess.

my kids didn't talk till late. I think at most they were saying "baba" for the bottle. I can't recall anything else or if it was even that early they were saying that.
