Hello, just wondering what is "normal" in terms of speech for an almost 2 year old.
My son has lots of words, I've never counted them but he can name most things and people in his environment and is beginning to use phrases (Where's so and so?). His receptive language is even better and he understands pretty much everything we say or ask him and can point to all kinds of objects, people, animals in books.
My question is about his mispronunciation of words. He can say Mama and Mouse but calls "mitts" "bitts". He can say Hi and Hello (well Hewo) but calls a "horse" a "morse". Bupple for Buckle and Pubble for Puzzle. Many words are pronounced correctly and many are not. Any ideas? We just keep saying the correct word (although it is so tempting to call mitts bitts because it sounds so cute when he says it:) I am just wondering if this indicates an issue or if it is just normal. I remember my mom telling me that I called "crackers" "frackers" and I'm okay now lol.
Any feedback would be appreciated:)
