Has anyone else had this experience? My 19 month old can say several words, and he will repeat us if we ask him to say words like "Diamond. Can you say Diamond?" or "Cat. Can you say Cat?" But every time we ask him to say his older brother's name he refuses. He will say the cat's name, mommy, or daddy, or just tell us "no." He loves his older brother, and his older brother has the easiest name to say (Ben) but won't do it. He won't even attempt it.
What gives with this kid??? I feel like it's the law of the universe, a trick "you can try at home" with your own child at this age: they wont say their siblings names. Any ideas? It makes us laugh, but curious as to why.
