My son is now almost 4, didn't really start talking until almost 3 yrs old. He said a few words after the age of 2, but would never use them repeatedly. He started talking on his own when he was good and ready, a few months shy of age 3. Now, about a year later, he is speaking sentences and his speech has developed leaps and bounds - again all on his own time. When the grandparents shared concern, I just smiled, said he was fine, and changed the subject.
